Meylan, France – March 22, 2010. Dolphin Integration’s strategy is to offer to Standard Cell Users a bunch of specialized stems ultimately optimized for one prime criterion.
The HD-BTF stem optimized for high density comes first and is already available for major foundries in the 180 nm, 130 nm and 65 nm technological processes. Thanks to its innovative Spinner Cell, this stem is good also for dynamic power consumption.
The Speed optimized stem comes next so that HS-BTF is under development to complete their catalog in the 130 nm and 65 nm technological processes.
The Low Leakage optimized stem is launched today as LL-BTF with one major plus: opposite to conventional libraries, the SESAME stems are cell-mixable for the synthesizer to provide the best trade-off between the diverse criteria: density, speed, dynamic power and leakage.
With the objective to keep its capability to be mixable with the HD-BTF and HS-BTF stems, while dramatically reducing the leakage, LL-BTF is designed with both Hvt and Svt transistors.
Compared to the High Density optimized stem, LL-BTF enables to divide the leakage in a ratio up to 30.
Depending on the applications and on the leakage constraint, users have the flexibility to either implement their SoC with LL-BTF alone or to mix LL-BTF with HD-BTF or even HS-BTF, the goal being to fully optimize leakage versus density or speed.
