Evatronix IP Cores Now Available in the LFoundry Process Design Kit (PDK)
The partnership offers new possibilities for SoC designers and design houses to make use of the Central European silicon manufacturing plant.
“Thanks to this agreement, Evatronix is able to offer a full range of ASIC development services to its customers,” said Wojciech Sakowski, Evatronix President and CEO. “Evatronix and LFoundry can now leverage on each other’s experience and guide the customer through the whole product design and development process, instead of taking or leaving him half way. The designer can focus on the added value of his chip and can pick third party IP to complete his design, which is already proven to work in the target technology.”
Evatronix made a decision to include most of its IP in LFoundry’s PDK libraries. LFoundry customers will be offered such popular components as the fastest and the smallest 8051 microcontrollers, USB 2.0 High Speed, NAND Flash and SDIO memory controllers as well as the Gigabit Ethernet MAC. Upon customer’s request, any other Evatronix IP can be customized to a desired LFoundry process.
LFoundry provides two analog / mixed signal technology platforms based on 350 nm and an advanced 150 nm process. Especially the leading 150 nm process offers excellent performance when applied to the RF application, with results comparable with 130 nm technologies. This enables the customers to process cost effective products with high performance values. Evatronix IP will be available in both these technologies, and in all available service schemes - Full Mask Sets, Multi Layer Masks and Multi Project Wafers.
“With our focus on giving our customers best flexibility and early synergies between design and process development, including the European IP provider Evatronix in our libraries is one further step enabling our customers cut time-to-market even more than before,” said Michael Lehnert, LFoundry CEO. “With this partnership we can further strengthen the analog / mixed signal industry by providing to our customers IP service for their SoCs through Evatronix and also fast and reliable foundry manufacturing by LFoundry.”
