austriamicrosystems' Full Service Foundry business unit announced the availability of the new analog/mixed-signal high performance technology design kit (HIT-Kit) for its advanced 0.35?m technologies. The new design environment based on the latest version of Mentor Graphics' IC Flow 2005.1 includes the high performance 0.35?m process technologies C35 (mixed-signal CMOS), S35 (SiGe-BiCMOS) and H35 (High-Voltage CMOS).

The Mentor HIT-Kit supports Mentor's new ICstudio environment for developing and managing complex analog mixed-signal IC designs. A set of accurate circuit simulation models for high-voltage devices that account for parasitic effects and Safe Operating Area checks, layout generators for high-voltage devices, and special layout verification utilities like leakage check, complete the design kit.

The press release further states that the HIT-Kit v3.70 contains a complete set of fully silicon-qualified standard cells, periphery cells and general purpose analog cells to rapidly get designs off the ground. Custom analog and RF devices, physical verification rule sets for Calibre DRC/LVS and device models for Calibre xRC, as well as excellent characterized circuit simulation models enable rapid design starts of complex high performance mixed-signal ICs, added Mentor Graphics.

All I/O structures within the design kit are silicon-validated, and meet the military ESD and JEDEC latch-up standards.
