Infiniscale Debuts TechYielder Model-based Parametrical Yield Optimizer

Infiniscale SA, the leading Model-based Analog design and Yield Optimization Company, announced TechYielder[tm] a unique powerful yield optimizer targeting advanced complex Analog Designs. For the first time, Infiniscale model-based parametrical yield optimizer offers designers the opportunity to maximize both yield and robustness in record time.

Infiniscale model-based TechYielder[tm] fills the need for yield optimization of complex analog, Advanced Mixed-Signal, and RF blocks, designed with sub 90 nm design kits. The extremely fast design turnaround gives the designer total freedom to try different options and trade-offs. Rather than design and then check yield, designers optimize directly performance distribution versus specifications.

“Analog Design for Yield (DFY) becomes a reality with TechYielder[tm]. Thanks to our unique modeling technology, we could achieve what the industry dreamed about for a long time, “says Firas Mohamed, Infiniscale CEO, “The tool gives the design solution that best yields to your specifications. TechYielder[tm] is unique because it goes beyond the traditional methods with the speed of models and the accuracy of simulators. Our model-based approach allows designers to yield, center, and optimize designs in matters of hours. This is a leap compared to any simulator-based approach that proved to be no longer efficient for nanometer scale designs. Using TechYielder[tm]“, our beta customers from major IDMs, have completed design optimizations in record time with significant performance improvement, concluded Firas.

TechYielder[tm] is available and is part of the Infiniscale LYSIS[tm] environment.

TechYielder[tm] will be demonstrated at DAC 08
Booth 2860
June 9-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
