"As a new foundry, HuaLi faced a steep learning curve and severe schedule constraints in establishing a production-ready RET and OPC solution," said Ming-Sheng Guo, deputy fab director. "Mentor distinguished itself with a solid commitment to HuaLi for both technology delivery and technical support. Our choice of Mentor as an exclusive partner was based on Mentor's ability to meet our aggressive technology, schedule, and cost requirements. We believe this partnership is critical in establishing an advanced post-GDSII tapeout flow to compete in today's foundry market space."
"Mentor's strength in the manufacturing space has always been the result of a combination of the most advanced technology and a focus on our customers' success," said Joseph Sawicki, vice president and general manager of the Design to Silicon division at Mentor Graphics. "The Calibre OPC/RET/ MDP platform enables HuaLi to have a complete mask data preparation flow with a single source of support for OPC development and production on a unified infrastructure with the most production deployed software in the industry."
