In order to support and promote the production of advanced process in China domestic foundry, PDA, the unique vendor that integrate EDA tools for semiconductor logic device model, high-speed semiconductor characterization system and modeling, PDK engineering services, along with Xpeedic, which is a global leading provider of EDA software, IPD, and turn-key SiP design solution, announced all-round strategic cooperation in logic, analog and RF process testing, as well as modeling and PDK engineering services. These two close cooperation companies are fully complementary in EDA software and engineering service, providing one-stop complete model and PDK solutions for Chinese leading foundries and design companies with dramatically shortened development cycle of model and PDK, to accelerate process production, and realize the localization from tools to services.
Albert Li, CEO of PDA, said:” The fast characterization product, EDA tools and engineering services of PDA serves most of the 12-inch production lines in China. We are expert at providing complete logic process test chip design, characterization measurement, device modeling and PDK design; however, the need of knowledge in passive devices is imperative with the increasing complexity and diversity of the foundry process. EDA toolkits and engineering services from Xpeedic are complementary of our solutions; their EM simulation, passive devices PDK extraction and verification tools, and related services are verified under advanced process. The cooperation of both sides perfectly cover the models and PDK needs from active to passive, from logic to RF devices.”
Dr. Feng Ling, president and CEO of Xpeedic, said:” Xpeedic built up an ecosystem of semiconductor foundries and design companies using their powerful EDA toolkits, rapidly expanding IP (IPD) library that integrates passive devices and the aim of always keep up with costumers’ latest needs. The strategic cooperation with PDA further enrich the ecosystem, and will provide our customers with complete solutions from active to passive device characterization, device modeling, PDK and system verification, helping engineers implement faster design flow and shorter design cycle on most advanced semiconductor process platforms.”
