Power, performance and area improvements

Thalia’s AMALIA IP reuse platform can facilitate improvements in power, performance or area for our customers’ existing analog IP. By using targeted automation to analyse and compare base and target technologies, we can improve PPA according to the needs of any given project.

Evolving analog IP from one technology to another or one foundry to another is usually underpinned by a need to improve power comsumption, speed and performance or the physical size of silicon chip.

When any parameter of a proven circuit changes, there will be knock on effects on the characteristics expressed when it’s migrated to the target technology. These changes will result in the silicon not performing to specification, meaning the design or circuit will need tweaking to knock it back into specification.

Thalia’s targeted automation means that this migration and resulting tweaks can be performed in a greatly reduced time frame. By automatically analyzing both base and target technologies, the AMALIA IP reuse platform means an analog IP can be assessed, migrated and tweaked in half the time of conventional redesign processes.
