Mentor Graphics Announces that ON Semiconductor Completed Multiple Successful Tapeouts Using Pyxis Custom Router

Thu, 8 Nov 2012 15:15:49 EST

WILSONVILLE, Ore. — Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that the automotive business unit of ON Semiconductor, a premier supplier of high-performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics, has completed multiple successful tapeouts with the Pyxis® Custom IC Router including that of a highly integrated, complex power chip. The Pyxis custom router gave ON Semiconductor a 10x improvement in productivity and helped them shave eight weeks from the overall tapeout schedule.

'ON Semiconductor continuously evaluates design implementation tools to find solutions to reduce the development cycle and minimize risk for errors,' said Paul Ferrara, East Greenwich Development Center director, ON Semiconductor. 'We recently used the Pyxis Custom Router on one of our team's most complex power chips and were able to reduce the time to route the top level block of the design from two weeks down to a little more than one day. We saw similar productivity boosts throughout many of the blocks of the chip and plan to use the router on all of our future designs.'

'ON Semiconductor is a very important customer and we are pleased that the Pyxis Custom IC Router was able to improve their productivity with excellent quality of results while substantially reducing their cost,' said Linda Fosler, marketing director for the Deep Submicron Division, Mentor Graphics. 'The design team found the block-level routing for large functional blocks and top-level routing especially helpful as each gave them a 10x improvement in productivity.'
