EDA Startup Tops Gary Smith’s Must-See List

LONDON -- POLYTEDA Software Corp., an EDA startup headquartered in Toronto but with its R&D base in Kiev, Ukraine, sits at the top of Gary Smith's "What to see at DAC 2009"

Polyteda was founded in 2005 and has been developing a technology for fast physical verification, which is therefore able to handle the demands of modern complex designs. Cooperation with the National Technical University of Ukraine, provides scientific support for product development and the company has software development contracts with companies in Moscow and in Minsk in Belorussia.

The company launched its first product, an IC layout processing utility called PowerLPU, in July 2007. Its second product for layout versus schematic and design rule checking, called PowerDRC/LVS was announced in December 2008, along with evaluation results from beta-customer IHP GmbH (Frankfurt-Oder, Germany).

PowerDRC/LVS was designed to handle large designs with multibillion transistors and to be suitable for designs on 45-nm, 32-nm and more advanced process technologies. The processing speed has been benchmarked at 2 billion transistors on a full 45-nm design rule deck in less then one hour on a 100 processor farm. The input data size supports up to 30 billion transistors.
