Mentor Graphics Corp.'s Pyxis Custom IC Design Platform is now available. According to Mentor Graphics, the platform delivers new functionality and increased productivity through advances in concurrent design and automated custom IC routing technology.

The Pyxis Custom IC Design Platform is a step function improvement to current custom IC design and verification tools by addressing their most serious shortcomings, Mentor Graphics said.

Four key capabilities contribute to the advances in custom IC design quality of results and productivity:
???Concurrent design: Allows multiple designers, on the same local network, to work simultaneously on the same database to accelerate final chip assembly and DRC fixing;

???The Pyxis Custom Router: Automated analog and mixed-signal routing at the transistor, cell, block and chip levels that tackles hierarchical constraint propagation throughout the design with both global routing for congestion mitigation and detailed routing for rich net-by-net constraint application, as well as tight integration with 2.5D interconnect parasitic extraction for support of advanced process technologies;

???The Calibre RealTime interface: Sign-off quality DRC using standard Calibre decks that allow dynamic design rule checking during editing; and

???Support of industry standards: The Pyxis Custom IC Design Platform supports the interchange of design data via OpenAccess.
