Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd (TSMC) and Synopsys Inc. have collaborated to guarantee that TSMC's internally developed Nexsys 90nm libraries are fully compatible with Synopsys' RTL to GDSII flow.

TSMC Nexsys 90nm libraries support all Synopsys views used in the design flow, including: .lib, with noise modeling capabilities; .db; .plib; .pdb; Apollo; Astro, and the Synopsys Milkyway design database. This integration was achieved using Synopsys' Liberty open standard library spec and Milkyway.

"By collaborating with Synopsys, TSMC has gained access to a team of experts who helped validate our libraries to meet the requirements of our mutual customers," said Genda Hu, VP of Corporate Marketing at TSMC. "The support and commitment from Synopsys during development assures designers that TSMC's Nexsys 90nm libraries are ready to deploy in Synopsys' design flow."
