AWR and UMS Offer Upgraded Process Design Kits for UMS PH15 and PH25 GaAs MMIC Foundry Processes

SINGAPORE — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 7, 2009Asia Pacific Microwave Conference AWR and United Monolithic Semiconductors (UMS) today announced the availability of enhanced process design kits (PDKs) for the UMS PH15 and PH25 advanced gallium arsenide (GaAs) foundry processes. These enhanced PDKs enable designers to take full advantage of the industry-leading process capabilities of UMS within AWR’s 2009 Microwave Office® design suite including its latest technologies such as iNets™, ACE™, AXIEM™, and ICED DRC.

“Users of these enhanced PDKs will not only be able to fully exploit the latest features within Version 2009 of AWR’s software,” said Eric Leclerc, foundry manager of UMS. “They can also take advantage of the fact that these PDKs are now release-independent from AWR’s own software upgrade cycle.”
