Anova Solutions Announces NCCM Cell Model, Library Characterization Enables Fujitsu Microelectronics Release 40n Libraries

Anova Solutions Inc., an EDA company focusing on timing and power analysis, announces its NCCM (Nonlinear Continuous Cell Model) and the new release of its cell library characterization software ChronoVA-LC for the NCCM. Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited used the software characterizing its 40n process standard cell libraries. In addition to the characterization of its statistical timing model, NCCM supports industry standard timing and power models such as CCS, CCS Compact, CCS Power, ECSM and ECSM power.

“We used ChronoVA-LC, characterized more than 40 corners of our 40n process node cell libraries which is corresponding to MSV within 3 days. We are pleased to have unified library characterize software from Anova to support all the industry cell models (CCS, CCS COMPACT and ECSM),” says Noboru Yokota, General Manager of technology development division, common IP & Technology Development Unit, Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited, “Fujitsu is also offering statistical timing cell libraries to our 40n ASIC and COT customer for using ANOVA’s statistical static timing analysis on timing sign-off.”

“NCCM as our kernel model is providing a continuous non-linear response to Process, Voltage and temperature for logic standard cell timing, and power, with which customer can generate any PVT corner library from a previous characterized database without spending days and weeks on library characterization. It also helps today’s multi-voltage design and dynamic voltage scaling for low power design,” says Jun Li, CEO of Anova Solutions Inc.
