eSilicon has expanded its online automation suite with the addition of a GDSII portal that provides automated quoting for TSMC foundry technologies, and IP MarketPlace environment that enables interactive exploration of eSilicon-designed compilable memories.

The GDSII portal builds on the instant online quoting system for multi-project wafer shuttle services. The portal facilitates full specification of the manufacturing process requirements of a GDSII design to TSMC for manufacturing. The manufacturing process information is detailed through a series of menus, along with requirements for packaging, testing and delivery. An executable quotation includes non-recurring engineering pricing and unit pricing for the SoC device.

The GDSII portal is highly interactive, where customers receive immediate feedback from the company on their choices for design and manufacturing. This interactive experience aids in the exploration of process and design options, facilitating a design optimised for power, performance and area.

The IP MarketPlace environment, meanwhile, enables the ability to explore the complete product line of compilable memories from the company. It features an intuitive, easy-to-use interface where various memory configurations may be browsed to determine the best power, performance or area fit for a particular SoC design. Summaries of PPA performance of the chosen memories can be downloaded in Microsoft Excel format for further analysis, along with datasheets and IP silicon reports.

The GDSII portal will be available for general customer use in June 2014. Access will be through eSilicon's public website. The IP MarketPlace environment is scheduled in September.
