Sagantec launches the nmigrate layout migration and optimization tool. Based on automated, dynamic patented 2D dynamic compaction technology from Sagantec's recent acquisition NP-Komplete Technologies, nmigrate is designed to make all the corrections needed so a layout will enforce complex, must-abide-by rules for 28nm and 20nm process technologies and below.

nmigrate can migrate and DRC-correct cell layout and make sure the layout adheres to all advanced design rules, including coloring for double patterning. The tool claims higher quality layout, enabled by its 2d native engine and optimized handling of composite rules, and faster time to solution, enabled by scalable automatic optimization of all layout requirements.

The nmigrate tool has reportedly been used successfully by several tier-1 semiconductor companies, and used with multiple cell libraries targeting multiple leading-edge 28nm and 20nm foundry processes.

nmigrate is available for customers who design or migrate libraries for 28nm and 20nm processes. Sagantec offers both software license model as well as a service model.
