STMicroelectronics has selected InfiniScale’s ICLys solution for process variability analysis on analog/RF IP and TCAM memory designs using the latest 32nm and 28nm technologies. ICLys provides a unique Fast Monte Carlo analysis that speeds up Brute Monte Carlo (MC) analysis up to 50times while guaranteeing the same accuracy. “This is a major step for InfiniScale. We are really very pleased by STMicroelectronics’ adoption of our solution for process variability analysis,” said Firas Mohamed, founder and CEO of InfiniScale. “Resulting from a very close collaboration with different design teams at STMicroelectronics, ICLys is a real technology breakthrough able to handle the very challenging issues of advanced technologies. ICLys innovative Fast Monte Carlo analysis delivers a new standard in Monte Carlo simulation where its high-sigma analysis is unique by providing fast and highly accurate yield estimation exceeding classical and known approaches.” “With the high-variability phenomenon appearing below 40nm technology nodes, ICLys can contribute to improving the process-variability exploration for our FD-SOI technologies while providing a very significant cost reduction to statistical verifications by simulation,” said Jean-Paul Morin, AMS/RF CAD flow manager at STMicroelectronics. ICLys offers a non-intrusive EDA tool for customer’s design flows, using designer’s own golden spice simulators and loading directly the process design kit and Spice-like Netlist without any modifications. A very simple user interface allows for intuitive usage of the tool for an immediate benefit to design productivity, reliability and robustness. With ICLys, InfiniScale becomes the provider of innovative variability-aware design solutions for Analog, RF and Memory analysis, generating major yield improvements on IPs and ICs.
