Avant! Corp. has expanded its strategic alliance with Grace Semiconductor Mfg. Corp. Ltd (GSMC) to include library solutions for advanced technology designs using 0.255m to 0.135m technologies. Avant! is expected to provide both Libra-Visa (GSMC timing specific) and Libra-Passport (multi-foundry access) digital design libraries for GSMC. The libraries are anticipated to be silicon-validated, compatible with Avant!'s Milkyway-based, SinglePass-SoC flow, and optimized for SoC designs targeted at GSMC's China fabrication facility.

The Libra-Visa and Libra-Passport libraries will include standard cells, noise-quieting I/Os, and memory compilers that are suitable for SoC applications in graphics, multimedia, and telecommunications. The Libra libraries plug into the Avant! Milkyway-based, SinglePass-SoC design solution and also provide required support for other EDA tool solutions. An extensive quality assurance program is combined with a comprehensive silicon validation program to ensure manufacturability.
