TowerJazz Participates at DAC with Major EDA Vendors to Showcase Latest Tools Combined with its Superior Technology

TowerJazz also participates at EDA partner user conferences to provide mutual customers with the most comprehensive and up-to-date design solutions available

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced its participation at the 2013 Design Automation Conference (DAC) being held on June 2-6 in Austin, TX (booth #1736). TowerJazz will host a series of seminars in conjunction with its EDA vendor partners to showcase how these collaborations allow customers clean design flow and higher yield by using mutual tools. For more information on dates and times of exhibitor seminars, please see invitation online http://towerjazz.com/dac.html.


In addition, TowerJazz is participating at its EDA partners' user conferences to provide mutual customers with the latest EDA tools and design capabilities to use with TowerJazz's advanced specialty manufacturing processes. TowerJazz participated at the Cadence User Conference (CDNLive) in the US (Silicon Valley) on March 12-13, 2013, at the Munich, Germany event on May 6-8, 2013, and will join the event in Tel Aviv, Israel on October 14, 2013. TowerJazz participated at the Synopsys User Group (SNUG) conference in the US (Santa Clara, CA) on March 25-27, 2013 and will participate at other SNUG events on July 12, 2013 in Japan and August 22, 2013 in China.

At the CDNLive conferences, TowerJazz is presenting the enablement of Cadence Open Access (OA) support for all of its technology platforms and the full reference design flow for mixed mode simulation on TowerJazz power management platform. At SNUG, TowerJazz is announcing the official release of the TowerJazz iPDK on its standard logic (TS18SL) and power management platform (TS18PM & TS35PM) that supports Synopsys' Custom Designer and Laker (SpringSoft).

Cadence is the Analog EDA tool leader and Synopsys is the biggest EDA company and digital flow leader. Collaboration between TowerJazz and its EDA vendor partners allows mutual customers clean design flow and higher yield by using mutual tools. For instance, noise analysis tools allow customers higher yield as they can analyze the noise in the design phase rather than after manufacture.

"We are constantly investing efforts in further developing our partnerships with the major EDA vendors. These new releases will enable our customers to use the most updated EDA tools along with our industry leading technology. It will also enable customers the choice for their EDA toolset for analog, digital and mixed-signal design flows by adding the support of iPDK in parallel to the Cadence OA PDK," said Ori Galzur, Vice President of the TowerJazz VLSI Design Center.

TowerJazz provides a design enablement platform that complements its sophisticated technology and enables a quick and accurate design cycle. TowerJazz provides design kits, IPs and dedicated design services for its process technologies so its customers succeed with first-time working silicon and fast time-to-market. TowerJazz has deep partnerships with major EDA vendors and IP providers to supply its customers with the most comprehensive and up-to-date design solutions available in the market.
