AMALIA™ Analog schematic porting

Schematic porting is one of the necessary keys to enabling analog IP reuse. Thalia’s unique AMALIA design flow uses targeted automation to increase efficiency and direct designer effort where it matters

Fast and efficient schematic porting

Thalia’s schematic porting capability – part of the AMALIA™ analog design automation tool suite – integrates into the Cadence™ analog design flow, and is configured for TSMC, Global Foundries, UMC, SMIC, and in-house technologies of Tier 1 design companies. It accepts Component Description Format (CDF) properties such as device width/length; technology limitations such as minimum/maximum permissible device dimensions and area constraints; and design constraints.

Integrating with the AMALIA design centering capability, it facilitates rapid analysis of the porting process by providing a detailed error/warning log that can be used to direct the designer’s attention and provide candidate solutions to porting problems.

Analog schematic porting

Thalia deployed its unique schematic porting solution to accelerate and cost-reduce the process of  porting a customer’s Bluetooth design from a 28nm to a 40nm process node
