SoftJin Technologies Pvt. Ltd's Nirmaan post layout EDA Software development Toolkit enables Gauda Inc., one of the companies who has the technology to accelerate computation for optical proximity correction (OPC) using graphical processing units (GPUs), to bring its breakthrough OPC acceleration technology faster to market.

SoftJin, developer of customised EDA tools for the specific requirements of semiconductor and EDA companies, focuses on post-layout EDA where the company offers several end-use EDA products and EDA building blocks that address the challenges associated with post layout design data processing, analysis and computational lithography at 65nm technology and below.

SoftJin CEO Nachiket Urdhwareshe said "SoftJin's unique Nirmaan software development toolkit for EDA tool developers accelerates the development of optimised post-layout EDA tools, including DFM/DFY tools."

"In order to target our breakthrough technology for accelerating DFM application like OPC, we had a build vs. buy decision to make for the underlying geometric database engine,� said Gauda Founder and CTO Ilhami Torunoglu.

He also said that by opting for Nirmaan, the company has leveraged SoftJin's proven and high performance geometric infrastructure technology. "The high speed and capacity handling capability of Nirmaan ensured that we had a scaleable underlying infrastructure to cater to the RET needs of 45nm and 32nm full chip layouts."
