The Japan semiconductor technology research consortium, STARC has qualified and selected Solido Design Automation's Solido Variation Designer for its STARCAD-AMS analogue/mixed-signal reference flow.

STARC involves nine electronics companies, five of whom participate in analogue and mixed-signal (AMS) design. The AMS reference flow will support advanced custom IC design and is targeted to reduce overall turn-around time by 50 per cent. STARC will validate and support the integrated design flow for its client companies.

The selection criteria STARC used to qualify Solido for its differential operational amplifier reference design was its ability to meet design performance specifications across PVT corner and local mismatch conditions. Also, total setup and operation time could not exceed 12 hours, and the tool had to meet MOS, resistor and capacitor area requirements.
