SpringSoft Inc. and Dongbu HiTek Co. Ltd have forged a multiyear partner program to develop a series of process design kits (PDKs) streamlining the implementation of custom chips with Dongbu's leading-edge manufacturing technologies at mature process nodes. The companies also released the SpringSoft Laker PDK for the Dongbu HiTek 0.18?m BCDMOS foundry process with additional PDKs to follow throughout 2011.

This first foundry-qualified Laker PDK supports Dongbu HiTek's 0.18?m BCDMOS process technology. This enables chip designers to integrate power management with analog control and logic functions, making it suited for applications such as audio and motor control ICs, automotive SoCs, and LED driver chips. The PDK includes foundry-specific device symbols, highly optimized parameterized cells (PCells), pre-validated design rules and the latest technology files. When used with SpringSoft's Laker Custom Layout Automation System, the PDK automates the physical layout of analog designs to maximize designer productivity and reduce development cycles.

The Laker 0.18?m BCDMOS PDK is immediately available online for Dongbu HiTek customers.
