SAN FRANCISCO – Applied Wave Research Inc. (AWR) and Pulsic Ltd. announced that Pulsic’s Lyric Automatic Routing system is now integrated into AWR’s Analog Office 2006 design suite for analog and radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) design.
Through the Analog Office OpenAccess open standard data access interface, interconnects represented by the unique Analog Office Intelligent Net2 technology can be automatically routed in Pulsic’s full-featured, automatic, constraint-driven, shaped-based Lyric Automatic Routing system. The new solution is said to enable high-frequency analog, RF and mixed-signal designers to access the Pulsic routing system without leaving the Analog Office design environment, saving design time, increasing accuracy, and speeding designs to final tape-out.
“The collaboration between AWR and Pulsic provides IC designers with a new level of automation and flexibility in choosing the best tool for a particular design job,” said James Spoto, president and CEO of AWR. “We are pleased to be working with Pulsic in order to provide our customers with access to world class automatic routing technology directly from AWR’s easy-to-use, open design environment and unified data model.”
“Pulsic’s Lyric Automatic Routing system offers the highest quality controlled and constrained automatic routing available on the market,” said Ken Roberts, CEO of Pulsic. “The integration of our leading IC physical design technology into AWR’s industry-leading design software offers a breakthrough solution to create and optimize the design of analog, mixed-signal and RFICs for our mutual customers.”
