OrbitIO Interconnect Designer 

Concurrent die/package planning and route optimization

Efficient planning and assessment of connectivity and route feasibility within a single canvas environment.

Cadence OrbitIO Interconnect Designer Datasheet »
Product Image Cadence® OrbitIO™ interconnect designer helps your design team quickly assess and plan connectivity between the die and package in context of the full system—all within a single-canvas multi-fabric environment. It’s ideal for system architects or anyone responsible for developing the die-to-package interface and coming up with the optimal combination of bump/ball configurations and net assignments. It helps semiconductor companies evaluate route feasibility of the package, as well as develop and communicate a route plan to their package design resources.

Unlike an iterative spreadsheet-based approach, OrbitIO interconnect designer lets you make or refine decisions, then immediately visualize and evaluate the impact on adjacent fabrics, all within a single tool. In doing so, it significantly reduces iterations between your silicon and package design teams as they try to converge on a solution. OrbitIO interconnect designer helps you better qualify the design definition prior to implementation, leading to more predictable system cost, performance, and product delivery.
