Posted anew every four weeks or so, the EDA WEEKLY delivers to its readers information concerning the latest happenings in the EDA industry, covering vendors, products, finances and new developments. Frequently, feature articles on selected public or private EDA companies are presented.

Hillel Ofek, President and CEO at Sagantec, is quoted: “Our customers are reporting breakthrough productivity and time gains using our tools in production for 65nm and 45nm ICs. This new partnership with TTM broadens the access to our technology and opens additional channels for delivering its benefits to a wider market.”

Venkata Simhadri, President and CEO of TTM, is also quoted: “With the increase in complexity and effort necessary to do current layout implementation tasks, we have seen a growing demand for foundry and process portability. Combined with Sagantec’s automated layout migration tools and our design expertise, we can address these demands and provide a solution that is significantly faster and very cost effective.”

Synopsys announced that
Renesas Technology Corp. has signed an “expanded business agreement” that names Synopsys as its leading EDA supplier across the Renesas design flow. The two companies say they will cooperate “to increase the use of Synopsys' technology across Renesas' engineering teams to capture greater productivity and efficiency for the company.”

* Synopsys also announced that Synopsys' DesignWare Wireless USB Device IP has passed the USB Implementers Forum's (USB-IF) Certified Wireless USB Testing and earned the certification logo.

Test Tooling Solutions Group announced has adopted
Ansoft’s PCB Design Suite, which “extends the firm's core design competency, strengthens its pool of intellectual property assets and minimizes time-to-market for new products … TTSG is developing innovative design flows that link process-accurate models of critical, board-level structures with advanced circuit and system simulation.”

X-FAB Silicon Foundries announced it has “broadened its statistical modeling suite for Monte Carlo simulation for its 0.6 and 0.35 micrometer analog/mixed-signal technology platforms by announcing support for the
MunEDA WiCkeD tool family of software tools.” The companies say, “The move reflects ongoing cooperation between X-FAB and MunEDA to reduce the number of required analog/mixed-signal design respins and speed time to market for communications, computer, automotive, consumer electronic and other applications.”

Zuken says it’s now offering its PCB manufacturing design and verification system, DFM Center; to customers in Europe and North America. Per the Press Release: “DFM Center has already been adopted by leading board makers in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan; including close to 90% of flexible board makers in Japan.”

Zuken also announced a new version of the company’s desktop PCB design suite, CADSTAR 10.0, which the company says includes a large number of additional “intelligent functionalities for schematic, library and PCB design, tighter integration with FPGA design tools, and the introduction of an alternative schematic front-end solution E³.logic … The use of the E³.Logic database as a back-end solution for CADSTAR PCB design reduces the time spent searching for existing parts, integrates easily with specific MRP, ERP or PDM systems and works with databases that comply with Microsoft's ODBC standard.”
