Renesas Technology Corp. has standardized Cadence Design Systems Inc.'s MaskCompose for automated reticle design synthesis in its 90nm design flow. Cadence says the MaskCompose provides a highly efficient design tapeout system that automatically generates jobdecks, order forms and customized paperwork. As a result, the MaskCompose reduces costly errors and poor mask revisions in manufacturing caused by human errors in the tape-out process.

MaskCompose enables Renesas Technology to capture reticle floorplans, wafer layouts, and fabrication data to allow fast, automated and error-free data generation within its 90nm process. By using MaskCompose to improve its reticle design flow, Renesas has enhanced flexibility while speeding interaction between device engineering and manufacturing. This is especially critical in today's competitive marketplace, where product life cycles can be as short as six months and the costs of IC design and masks continue to escalate.
