Custom IC Design
Mentor offers an enterprise ready custom IC design flow for your innovative designs. The IC flow supports new enhancements to improve analog design and analysis, in addition to an updated integration with AFS, Calibre and many other Mentor industry leading solutions. With over 30 years of experience and thousands of customer design tape outs, the platform is well suited to support all More than Moore technologies.
A smart choice for analog and mixed-signal designers.
Affordable, integrated analog/mixed – signal design flow that is easy to customize for your environment.
The Mentor custom IC design tools feature advanced, high performance, easy-to-use schematic and layout editor, integration with best-in-class circuit simulators and integration with Calibre, the industry leading solution for design rule checking, parasitic extraction and physical verification.
The Mentor flow begins with capture, simulation management and analysis, and continues with simulation, implementation, physical layout and verification, using foundry certified PDK’s, to ensure a smooth path to tape-out.
The design environment supports multiple Mentor transistor level simulators, which allow the user to select the appropriate simulator based on their design type and needs.
The design environment has been enhanced to support the different implementation needs required by the More than Moore technologies including MEMS and integrated photonics. Our single design environment allows you to implement analog, mixed-signal, MEMS and Photonics using the complete capabilities of our flow.
