HSINCHU, Taiwan--January 04, 2011--SpringSoft, Inc., a global supplier of specialized IC design software, today announced that Powerchip Technology Corporation, a memory solution company based in Taiwan, has selected the Laker™ Custom Layout Automation System as the standard platform for memory chip design.
Powerchip offers large volume production of DRAM products, such as DDRIII/DDRII DRAMs, and has begun mass production of NAND Flash chips. With the easy-to-use tools and automated design flows of the Laker system, design teams in the Powerchip Technology Corp. (PTC) have increased productivity by as much as 20 percent.
By making Laker software available to more groups within its development organization, Powerchip can leverage the productivity gains and shorter development cycles to accelerate time-to-volume production of current generation memory products and new high-density memory chips.
“As a company, we are focused on enriching our product portfolio by enhancing its cost competitiveness,” said Su Lu, Ph D., vice president at Powerchip. “Laker’s focus on design excellence and saving time allows our development teams to meet aggressive product goals and delivery schedules.”
“Laker is a highly automated custom chip design environment with full-featured schematic editor, Magic Cell technology for automatic device generation, and complete schematic-driven layout flow to speed physical implementation,” said JT Li, vice president of the Physical Design Group at SpringSoft. “These capabilities are coupled with the highest possible levels of productivity and ease of use, so that Powerchip’s design and foundry service teams can stay focused on their core competencies and deliver superior memory solutions in less time.”
