MUNICH, Germany – June 27, 2011 – MunEDA today announced that Toshiba Corporation selected the MunEDA WiCkeD™ tool suite for an integral part of its custom IC design flow. WiCkeD is a circuit analysis and sizing environment, and includes tools for schematic porting, nominal circuit analysis and optimization, variation-aware design analysis, parametric yield optimization, and circuit model generation. With WiCkeD, circuit designers can achieve speed-ups in circuit tuning and quality improvements that lead to fewer silicon iterations and improved final product yield.
“After intensive evaluations, we selected the WiCkeD tool suite to enhance our productivity for analog-mixed-signal design products,“ said Yukihiro Urakawa, Senior Manager, Logic LSI Design Department, Logic LSI Division of Semiconductor Company, Toshiba Corporation. “Using WiCkeD on different projects, we achieved speed-ups in our circuit analysis, porting and sizing process, reducing the sizing time and effort to deliver quality products for 40nm and below in time.”
Andreas Ripp, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at MunEDA, said, “We are very proud that Toshiba, one of the largest semiconductor companies worldwide, has chosen to license MunEDA’s WiCkeD tools. Our collaboration will help MunEDA to further adapt and improve our technology to meet the demanding challenges of leading-edge fabrication processes, such as those used by Toshiba in its projects and products.”
MunEDA develops and licenses EDA tools and solutions that analyze, model, optimize and verify the performance, robustness and yield of analog, mixed-signal and digital circuits. Leading semiconductor companies rely on MunEDA´s comprehensive WiCkeD™ tool suite – the industry’s broadest family of circuit analysis solutions – to reduce circuit design time and achieve maximum yield in their communications, computer, memory, automotive and consumer electronics designs.
