San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Triad Semiconductor and Mentor Graphics Corporation today announce a new approach to low cost, mixed-signal IC design, for the masses, with the introduction of ViaDesigner. This unique offering enables new IC development in two to six months, allows respins in less than four weeks, and can radically reduce the cost and risk typically associated with custom mixed-signal IC design.
ViaDesigner is a new electronic design automation (EDA) tool that enables system-level engineers, who have no previous IC design experience, to design their own mixed-signal configurable ASICs. This new approach to IC design is built on comprehensive system-level design technology from Mentor Graphics and Triads intelligent ViaASIC library wizards. Triad Semiconductor is a leading supplier of low-cost mixed-signal via configurable arrays, known as ViaASICs. Mentor Graphics is a leading supplier of EDA software, including solutions for high-level, mixed-signal system development and analysis.
The foundation for ViaDesigner is the SystemVision
