Enabling Tower’s leading-edge BCD and RF technologies with Mentor Design Tools

December 3, 2020  |
December 3, 2020  |


The custom IC design tools from Mentor are ideally suited for analog IC design for BCD and RF applications and have enabled design teams to design from a single cockpit from schematic to tape-out. Tower has partnered with Mentor to provide our mutual customers a truly differentiated design environment. In this webinar, we’ll present an overview of the collaboration between Tower and Mentor with examples of both high-voltage and high-frequency design tools such as Tanner, AFS simulations, Calibre PERC and xRC highlighting their use for simulation, layout synthesis and best-in-class verification for high-yielding, high-performance and high-reliability ICs
