NetLogic Microsystems selects Helic’s tools for RF IC design flow

SAN FRANCISCO, CA  May 19th, 2011 — Helic, Inc., the technology leader in EDA solutions for RF and high-speed IC design proudly announces that NetLogic Microsystems selected Helic’s VeloceRF™ and VeloceRaptor/X™ to be part of their RFIC design flow.

To meet the demands of RF and high-speed design in advanced silicon processes, VeloceRF™ features a unique component-synthesis engine that generates DRC and DFM-correct inductive devices according to designer specifications. VeloceRF™ brings a complete solution for achieving an optimal floorplan, enabling silicon area reduction by optimizing inductor sizes. The tool de-risks the design from electromagnetic effects, incorporating EM coupling parasitics in post-layout simulation. VeloceRaptor/X™ is a breakthrough RLCK modeling tool with unparalleled capacity and speed suitable for integrated passives such as transmission lines, interconnects, digital high-speed lines, spiral inductive devices and MIM/MOM capacitors.

Stefanos Sidiropoulos, Vice President of Physical Layer Products at NetLogic Microsystems said that “Helic’s VeloceRF™ brings the most advanced inductor synthesis capabilities, significantly enhancing our RFIC design flow while VeloceRaptor/X™ offers high-speed and accurate electromagnetic analysis assisting our engineers in de-risking our multi-GHz designs”.

 “NetLogic Microsystems, the leader in PHY solutions for 10-Gigabit to 100-Gigabit Ethernet applications, leverages our technology to meet the challenges of multi-gigahertz nanometer scale designs and we are very proud to contribute with our tools”, said Yorgos Koutsoyannopoulos, CEO of Helic.
