SAN JOSE, USA: Cadence Design Systems Inc. announced that NationZ Technologies Inc., a leading fabless IC design company in China, selected Cadence as its EDA partner of choice for developing leading-edge SoCs for the security and communications market.
After rigorous evaluation, NationZ selected Cadence Virtuoso, Encounter, and system-in-package (SiP) technologies and methodologies for designing, verifying and implementing high-quality SoC designs at advanced nodes.
NationZ has standardized the back-end flow of a very large deep sub-micron SoC chip with Cadence end-to-end solutions and gained noticeable advantages in design productivity and quality. NationZ has also adopted Cadence solutions to design, verify and standardize its SiP flow for communications products, shortening the design cycle and achieving first silicon success.
Cadence provides a holistic environment with a comprehensive deep sub-micron back-end flow and low-power solution for NationZ’s engineering team to develop leading-edge chips with unparalleled performance and power targets in a shorter project development cycle.
Additionally, Cadence SiP design technology uniquely delivers the visibility and tight physical and electrical links between package and silicon, enabling NationZ to build and deliver complex SiPs with higher productivity and faster time to market.
"We have chosen Cadence as our provider of choice in EDA as an extension of our good collaboration and experiences with leading Cadence technologies over many years,” said Meiyun Li, chief technology officer and chief scientist of NationZ.
“By standardizing on Virtuoso, Encounter, and Allegro solutions for SiP design, we immediately saw benefits such as improved designer productivity and quality of results, and shorter time to market, thus enabling greater profitability. Teaming with Cadence at this level and on our future product developments enhances our competitiveness in the global markets.”
“Cadence is implementing a strategy to address the EDA360 vision, and we are committed to enabling our customers to build their most challenging low-power and mixed-signal designs with improved productivity and higher profitability,” said Veronica Watson, vice president, Asia Pacific Field Operations at Cadence. “We are honored to work with leading companies like NationZ to help them achieve these benefits, and look forward to our continued strong relationship.”
