Ridgetop Group, Inc is a fast-growing firm providing advanced tools and IP for Semiconductor Design Engineers.
Founded in 2000 and funded by Private Investors, Ridgetop has quickly emerged as the World Leader in innovative Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP), and Design Tools. Ridgetop combines its expertise in Analog and Mixed Signal IC design, with its expertise in Device Physics, to create unique IP and tools that improve customer’s profitability and first-pass silicon success.
Ridgetop “Rad Hard” Design Services
Ridgetop is recognized as the World Leader in Radiation Effects Mitigation for RF/Analog and Mixed Signal Applications and this is available to Domestic US Customers. Ridgetop has a state-of-the art design infrastructure to develop and deploy its products. Ridgetop also offers extensive Consulting Services and Technical Support to its customers.
- InstaCell™ Prognostic BIST Library Products
Ridgetop introduced the first commercially-available prognostic cells for predicting impending device failures before they occur. Using carefully-calibrated test structures that are co-located with the host IC, the cells are subject to the same environment aging effects experienced by the host circuit. The Library is especially useful for critical applications, such as Medical, Automotive, Aerospace and Satellite applications.
- InstaCell™ Conversion Products
Ridgetop provides pre-designed Converter products, including Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC’s) and Digital-to-Analog (DAC’s). It also provides the components of these products, including precision comparator cells and Op Amp Cells.
- InstaBIST™ BIST Library
Ridgetop introduced the first in a line of analog/mixed-signal BIST Cells in 2003. Included are a high speed ADC BIST Product that provides exacting measurements of INL and DNL.
- Rincon™ Harmonic Balance VHDL-AMS Simulator
Rincon was introduced to provide Engineers designing Wireless IC’s with the ability to use a standards-based simulator for gaining added insight to their designs. Introduced in 2001, the simulator has evolved into a versatile and open language solution to difficult modeling problems. Rincon can include effects not covered in standard simulators, such as Radiation Effects.
