SAN FRANCISCO — EDA vendor Sequence Design said Tuesday (Jan. 3) that it is developing an advanced power-aware reference flow with South Korean foundry DongbuAnam Semiconductor Inc. for 130-nanometer and below process technologies.
According to Sequence (Santa Clara, Calif.) the flow addresses a range of critical issues, such system-on-chip (SoC) power analysis and optimization, stand-by leakage and dynamic power optimization, and power grid analysis and optimization.
DongbuAnam said it plans to make the reference flow available to its customers in April.
"Relationships with such well-respected and sophisticated partners as DongbuAnam pay enormous dividends," said Sequence President and CEO Vic Kulkarni, in a statement. "Only by working with companies at the forefront of science and technology can we maintain the competitive edge necessary to compete in today's semiconductor business."
Sequence said the flow would incorporate the company's power-aware technologies, including the latest releases of the PowerTheater toolkit for SoC power analysis and optimization and the CoolPower and CoolTime optimization tools.
