MunEDA rolls automated tool for IP and schematic porting

MunEDA GmbH (Munich, Germany) has introduced the WiCkeD SPT Schematic Porting tool, a software tool to automate the time-consuming task of porting circuit schematics and intellectual property (IP) between different process technologies and process design kits (PDKs).

SPT executes 10-100X faster than manual schematic porting. MunEDA WiCkeD SPT supports designers with a design migration path, automatically replacing cells in the source PDK with corresponding cells for the target PDK. It provides flexible property mapping and automated shrinking, and handles all kinds of devices such as MOS transistors, resistors, capacitors and others. It is configurable for many source and target process technologies, and initially is available in TSMC process technologies such as from tsmcN65 (65nm) to tsmcN40 (40nm).

MunEDA can set up further process technologies on request. MunEDA WiCkeD SPT is fully integrated into the Cadence Virtuoso-based unified custom/analog flow.

Figure: MunEDA’s SPT schematic porting tool supports designers with the industry’s first automatic schematic migration. It executes 10-100X faster than manual porting.

Availability and pricing:
MunEDA WiCkeD SPT will begin shipping in April 2011. Pricing for a single license starts at $25,000 for a one-year time-based license.
