Synopsys IC Compiler with Zroute Technology Achieves Successful Tapeout for InfineonAutomotive Microcontroller
"Being on the leading edge of automotive applications, Infineon is striving to supply intelligent chips that increase the energy efficiency and safety of vehicles while offering optimal quality and reliability," said Hartmut Hiller, senior director, Design Methodology and Implementation at Infineon Technologies. "As single vias are one of the major factors impacting reliability, we are always looking for design implementation tools that deliver the highest redundant via rate possible."
Zroute's unique architecture takes advantage of best-in-class routing technologies to meet the demands of companies like Infineon that are developing complex chips with high reliability targets to fulfill the ever increasing quality requirements of automotive tier1 and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) all over the world. Utilizing concurrent design-for-manufacturability (DFM) optimization techniques, including soft rules and via redundancy, Zroute makes an efficient trade-off between manufacturability and the traditional design goals of timing, area, power and signal integrity. In addition, Zroute's native multicore support takes advantage of the latest microprocessor architectures to deliver near-linear scalability of runtimes as the number of cores increase.
"The selection of IC Compiler by Infineon and the recent complex automotive device tapeouts with Zroute are examples of Synopsys' IC Compiler technology driving customer success across the board," said Antun Domic, senior vice president and general manager of Synopsys' Implementation Group. "Synopsys values the relationship with Infineon and is committed to working closely with Infineon to evolve our product and methodologies based on feedback and requirements from the design teams of their leading-edge automotive applications."
