NetLogic Microsystems Selects Helic's Tools for RF IC Design Flow

SAN FRANCISCO, May 27, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Helic, Inc. ( http://www.helic.com/), the technology leader in EDA solutions for RF and high-speed IC design proudly announces that NetLogic Microsystems selected Helic's VeloceRF(TM) ( http://www.helic.com/velocerf/features) and VeloceRaptor/X(TM) ( http://www.helic.com/veloceraptorx/veloceraptorfeatures) to be part of their RFIC design flow.

To meet the demands of RF and high-speed design in advanced silicon processes, VeloceRF(TM) ( http://www.helic.com/velocerf/features) features a unique component-synthesis engine that generates DRC and DFM-correct inductive devices according to designer specifications. VeloceRF(TM) 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(TM) ( http://www.helic.com/veloceraptorx/veloceraptorfeatures) 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(TM) brings the most advanced inductor synthesis capabilities, significantly enhancing our RFIC design flow while VeloceRaptor/X(TM) 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.
