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.
Ruby Cherry EDA works with public cloud providers, using best-in-class methodologies to create pure and hybrid cloud environments optimized for IC design. We enable clients to accelerate migration and integration of EDA flows and methodologies to the cloud with both ready-made and custom designed cloud and hybrid infrastructure. Our services bring seamless scalability to the semiconductor design market, optimizing performance while managing costs.

Design management is critical to the success of EDA design projects. Ruby Cherry EDA provides expert consulting and support for using design management software such as IC Manage,* Git and Perforce. We employ best practices, developed in-house, working with clients’ engineering teams to optimize deployment of design management resources. Ruby Cherry EDA also provides system administration services for design management software, including:
- creating integration, release and archive flows
- implementing EDA design flow integrations
- configuring access controls
- ensuring uptime and data integrity
- IC Manage* GDP and GDP-XL
- ClioSoft SOS
Ruby Cherry EDA manages and configures Network Computing RTDA and Open Grid systems for load balancing. Our in-house tool OPTNCR reads & analyzes RTDA log data to optimize network computing resources. It enables our clients to maximize server farm utilization while minimizing user interaction. Functionalities of OPTNCR include balancing licenses with job completion requirements and determining optimal RAM and CPU capacity for each job.
Ruby Cherry offers expert database development services. Through SQL, MYSQL and Oracle programming, we integrate database flow with design flows to manage and store regression and job history data. Our database services give clients the ability to analyze job history and generate dashboard reports.
Ruby Cherry EDA offers expert scripting services. We have a comprehensive library of ready-to-use scripts for EDA/CAD environments, including a wide array of automation scripts. Our library includes scripts supporting Synopsis and Cadence digital, analog, RF and mixed-signal EDA environments, as well as integration of 3rd party tools. We offer an expanding collection of specialized scripts to academic institutions to manage differentiated EDA environments and permissions in coursework and research.
