DESIGN METHODOLOGY AND FLOW

Ruby Cherry EDA provides expert services for all stages of design, from spec to tape-out. Increase your productivity with our comprehensive methodology services for digital, analog, RF and mixed signal VLSI design groups. We work with all major EDA vendors, such as Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor, Keysight and others. Our design methodology and flow services include:

  • creation of custom design / verification methodology flows using database, dashboard and management tools, as well as modules within the project environment.
  • implementation and development of PDKs, libraries and IPs for target foundry processes of design teams:
    • advanced setup of analog and mixed-signal flow compatible views
    • automation of advanced processes including synthesis, mixed-signal simulation, digital place and route in an analog context, electromigration and IR drop analysis
    • advanced extraction techniques, and specialized ERC and DRC checks.
  • automation services to avoid delays in chip design by optimizing your work with EDA tools.
Our expertise will be at your fingertips, built in to your custom-configured design tools. Learn about our design and methodology solution packages:
  • RCCAD: Creation and management of project environments and version control
  • RC2IP: Digital design and verification management system
