Sequence Design announced Pextra Corporation has joined its In-Sequence Technology Partner Program, promoting EDA interoperability and advanced design methodologies. Pextra, known for its IC and package parasitic extraction acumen, is currently working with Sequence to integrate its fast, accurate field solver technology with the Columbus Library Builder.
“Combining the deep physical knowledge and modern algorithms embodied in our field solver with the Columbus Library Builder will reduce the time required to set up Columbus for new processes,” said Ching-Chao Huang, Pextra’s vice president of marketing. “The accurate, detailed results provided by the field solver allow Columbus to maintain and improve its best-in-class accuracy.”
“As the In-Sequence Program continues to grow, we are able to offer the design community an ever-wider variety of options for solving their most difficult challenges,” said Rob Mathews, Sequence vice president of extraction products. “Pextra’s technology provides an ideal complement to Columbus, and we are pleased to welcome them into In-Sequence.”
Pextra is the latest in a series of In-Sequence partnerships, joining a variety of EDA vendors, foundries, IP providers, design services providers, platform vendors and universities.
Pextra Corporation is a new startup specialized in fast and accurate 2D and 3D field solvers for capacitance, resistance and inductance extraction of complex interconnect in ICs and packages.
