Business description: NanGate’s primary focus is to provide a suite of EDA tools for improving the standard cell library development process by increasing R&D productivity and reducing time-to-market. NanGate also keep its tools up-to-date with the most advanced process nodes. Recent updates such as the integration of a 2D compaction engine at the layout clean-up phase and the development of a new transistor ordering algorithm have enabled efficient support of 20nm, 14nm and already working on support of 10nm processes. NanGate also targets the inherent shortcomings of predefined ‘one-size-fits-all’ standard-cell libraries by providing a complete engineering solution aimed at enabling semiconductor companies to meet challenging market requirements while cutting design and manufacturing costs. NanGate’s global development teams have created an exciting suite of products that benefit IC designers and manufacturers worldwide. At the heart of NanGate’s technology is the NanGate Library Creation Platform, the world’s most advanced standard cell development platform, which enables the rapid creation and validation of application-specific cell libraries or migration of existing cell libraries from one architecture or process node to another. Through NanGate Library Validation Platform, the most comprehensive and easy to use tool suite for standard cell library verification, the company also offer products for validation of IP developed in house or acquired from 3rd party vendors. The tool suite is fully integrated with Nangate’s library creation and characterization flow.
