Faraday Technology Corp. has joined Cadence Design Systems Inc.'s OpenChoice intellectual property (IP) program. The two companies intend to co-develop a list of library views to facilitate digital implementation and signal integrity under United Microelectronics Corp.'s 130nm Fusion process.

The companies said the library view generation process would be qualified and validated by R&D teams from Cadence and Faraday. Under the process, Faraday's customers will have the ability to handle digital implementation and signal integrity signoff in the Cadence Encounter digital IC design platform.

In a statement released jointly by Cadence and Faraday, Ken Liou, director of UMC's IP Development and Design Support division, said "Faraday's collaboration with Cadence to address SI [signal integrity] issues at the IP level helps customers achieve faster, first-pass silicon success. We are pleased that Faraday's standard cell libraries have been validated on our 130-nanometer Fusion process."
