Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits Broadens Cadence IP Portfolio


Cadence recently announced an agreement to acquire Cosmic Circuits Private Limited, a leading provider of analog and mixed signal intellectual property (IP) cores. Cosmic Circuits offers silicon-proven IP solutions in connectivity and advanced mixed-signal technologies in the 40nm and 28nm process nodes, with 20nm and FinFET development well underway.

The addition of the Cosmic Circuits™ product line will broaden the Cadence® IP portfolio, strengthening its solutions to address mobile device, cloud/datacenter and “internet of things” market opportunities.


Siemens Healthcare Boosts Verification Productivity by 30%

Leveraging Enterprise Specman Elite Testbench and Enterprise Manager, Siemens used executable specifications and designer-specified constraints to automate testbench generation and detect misrepresentations of the specs.

More effective and efficient capture and analysis of coverage data enabled them to deliver a high-quality, reliable design without any schedule delays.

Blog: FinFET Device Model--Academia, Industry Empower Next Transistor

A 3D multi-gate transistor called the FinFET promises tremendous power and performance advantages, and will be deployed by many foundries at 16nm and 14nm process nodes. But nobody can use FinFETs without an accurate device model.

Fortunately, the BSIM-CMG model that’s now available from the University of California at Berkeley provides just that. This blog post shows what this new FinFET device model achieves, and how Cadence and other industrial partners helped develop it.
