Renesas Achieves 3X Reduction in Chip-Finishing Turnaround Time Using Cadence QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 24, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that Renesas Electronics Corporation utilized the Cadence® QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment to achieve a 3X improvement in chip-finishing turnaround time over its previous solution. As a result of this productivity gain, Renesas has standardized on the Cadence® QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment to maximize tapeout productivity for all technology nodes.

The QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment is a high-performance, high-capacity data-analysis tool that enables viewing and superimposing of design data in any of its intermediate conditions throughout the chip-finishing process. The QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment is also compatible with third-party IC implementation flows and can read file formats used by third-party verification tools. The solution's comprehensive database operations—intelligent overlay, graphical XOR capabilities, synchronized multi-windows, net tracing, LEF/DEF support, merging/converting data, and cross-section views—make graphical comparisons of data easy by providing an additional element of decision support to tapeout engineers.

"After full-chip verification, opening the database for chip finishing can take hours, and because there are several iterations at this stage, any productivity loss has a large impact on time-sensitive project schedules and deadlines," said Tatsuji Kagatani, department manager, Design Automation Department System Integration Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. "We selected the QuickView Signoff Data Analysis Environment after a stringent evaluation, wherein Cadence delivered the best performance and capabilities. This enabled our design teams to improve their productivity and reduce iterations at tapeout."
