Cadence Design Systems Pvt Ltd, the Indian arm of Cadence Design Systems Inc., announced that KPIT Cummins Infosystems Ltd has adopted the Cadence AMS Methodology Kit to help its analog mixed-signal (AMS) designers simplify the application of Cadence technology. AMS design is a key component in consumer and wireless electronics.

The AMS Kit is based on the Virtuoso custom design platform, with links to the Encounter digital IC design platform and the Incisive functional verification platform. The components of this kit address the key productivity challenges which affect the predictability and risk of AMS design, namely fragmented analog, digital, and verification design processes; parasitic effects in AMS; multiple power supplies; and AMS design migration and reuse. This methodology is enabled by the Cadence AMS Block Flow with Reuse and Migration, the Cadence AMS Top-Level Flow, and the Cadence Analog Driven Physical Implementation Flow, along with a Generic Process Design Kit and simulation setups.

"We were looking for a proven design methodology that would enable seamless tape-outs with shorter, more predictable design cycles. Cadence was the only partner to offer a verified methodology that helps us focus on design differentiation rather than design infrastructure," said Kishor Patil, CEO and managing director of KPIT Cummins, in a statement. "The Cadence AMS Methodology enables us to provide innovative productand systems-engineering solutions, across semiconductors and automotive, industrial electronics, at optimal costs and faster time to market."
