After extensive and rigorous testing, Cosmic Circuits has tapped Cadence Design's Virtuoso IC 6.1 custom design platform for its complex analogue and mixed-signal layout flow, and immediately gained 30 per cent improvement in productivity and turnaround time over its previous flow.

Cosmic Circuits successfully deployed Virtuoso technology in full production for its leading-edge analogue/mixed-signal IP cores targeting consumer applications. These advanced features include automation to accelerate custom block authoring, as well as Virtuoso space-based routing technology, which automatically comprehends and enforces advanced process and design-rule compliance during interactive routing.

"We were looking for a next-generation technology that could help us with designing correct-by-construction layouts efficiently, thereby minimising overall design cycle time. We achieved this by using Virtuoso IC 6.1, boosting our efficiencies further. This platform looks very promising and our designers experienced at least 30% improvements, even while ramping-up quickly on this new technology. Its enhanced productivity features, ease of use, and the support we received from Cadence effectively complemented our internal design processes," said C. Srinivasan, VP of engineering, Cosmic Circuits. "By deploying the IC 6.1 platform we were able to increase productivity of the layout engineers, thereby saving time when thoroughly verifying designs prior to tape-out," he added.

"We are pleased to include Cosmic Circuits in our fast growing list of leading-edge companies who are achieving dramatic improvements in quality, productivity and time to market using Virtuoso 6.1," said John Stabenow, technical marketing group director at Cadence. "Winning in the semiconductor market demands that companies constantly and consistently deliver differentiated end products to the market. It is gratifying to work with companies like Cosmic Circuits to deliver on this objective, and Cadence looks forward to our continued technology collaboration."
