Freescale Semiconductor Selects Helic's Tools for RF IC Design Flow

SAN FRANCISCO, June 3, 2011 — (PRNewswire) —

Helic, Inc., the technology leader in EDA solutions for RF and high-speed IC design proudly announces that FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR selected Helic's VeloceRF(TM) and VeloceRaptor/X(TM) to be part of their RFIC design flow.

To meet the demands of RF and high-speed design in advanced silicon processes, VeloceRF(TM) 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) 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.

Magdy Abadir, Director of Design Automation at Freescale Semiconductor said that "Helic tools bring a lot of value when frequency goes up, significantly assisting our complex networking and radar design applications".

"Freescale Semiconductor leverage their leadership in multi-gigahertz devices to win in the gigabit networking and radar markets and we are very proud to be part of this endeavor addressing efficiently their design needs", said Yorgos Koutsoyannopoulos, CEO of Helic.
