DAC 2005: MunEDA releases new WiCkeDTM-DesignMDTM Version 3.16

Anaheim, CA, USA - Thursday, September 08th, 2005

The software is now available for MunEDA and ChipMD customers worldwide. A lot of significant improvements are implemented in the current WiCkeD-DesignMD version. The former setup tool was replaced by a completely redesigned and powerful constraint editor that is seamlessly integrated in the Cadence Design Framework DF-II. This makes the setup of circuit designs on block-level as well as the management for different technologies for analysis and optimization with WiCkeD-DesignMD much more user-friendly and easier. Andreas Ripp, MunEDA Vice President Sales & Marketing, stated: "A new multiple session concept was implemented in WiCkeD. Different setups can be loaded, saved and run in multiple WiCkeD sessions simultaneously. Data exchange with the integrated design frameworks is now easy to handle and can be done via automatic annotation and backannotiation fully integrated in Cadence Analog Design Environment. Structural information, constraint templates and final constraints are separately editable and a description for each constraint is shown in the GUI. Safety margins are globally and individually editable in the GUI."

Further large improvements have been done in the setup environment of statistical process and corner data. Process parameters are now automatically detected. Once set up, no further user interaction is necessary for global and local (mismatch) statistics setup to run automatic yield analysis and optimization. The analysis of extracted views is now very easy to handle for post-layout optimization of parasitics. These and a lot of other improvements like a new node type for worst-case operation analysis and improvements in WiCkeD-DesignMDs Monte Carlo analysis, worst-case analysis, yield optimization, and many more help the designers to speed up design time and significantly improve their design optimization results.
