Analog IP Reuse

Choosing the right analog and mixed signal process for your design can have a substantial impact on profitability and performance. Thalia’s AMALIA IP reuse platform allows you to port IPs between process technologies, centering and verifying the results.

Migrating designs across process technologies

Analog/RF designs need to be migrated across technologies for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Market requirement
  • Cost
  • Performance
  • Flexibility in choice of foundry

However, the task of migrating designs can be labour intensive and can result in long cycle times.

By using Thalia’s proprietary AMALIA technology Thalia and our clients can address design validation, design tweaks and feature enhancements, combined with our highly experienced analog and RF design and layout resources.

This is our trifecta – three processes that combine to stand apart from more conventional migration practices.

Thalia has a proven track record in migrating designs between all of the major foundries’ processes, including TSMC, Global Foundries, Samsung, Tier 1 foundries, UMC, AMS and SMIC; and across process nodes from 350nm down to 22nm.
