Thalia in Wales has updated its analog, mixed signal and RF IP design migration tool to support 12nm FINFET designs

Version 24.1 of Thalia’s AMALIA 24.1 includes support for the recent 12nm FINFET process port, as well as Circuit Porting simulation comparisons.

The tool also includes a summary report within AMALIA’s Technology Analyzer software that provides the key information for choosing the right process technology nodes and optimum devices.

The 12nm FINFET qualification was completed last month,  helping to speed up the port of IP to a more advanced process technology. 

“FinFET technology delivers substantial performance benefits and enables more efficient scaling in semiconductor devices. This is crucial given the shift towards increasingly smaller technology nodes and transistors,” says Sou Bennani-McCord, Global VP of Sales at Thalia. 

“Leveraging FinFETs, our customers are engineering devices that are not only smaller and more efficient, but also significantly more powerful, all while ensuring compatibility with a variety of technology nodes. This versatility is key for applications spanning from automotive to IoT, AI and ML, and more, positioning our customers at the cutting edge of electronic design innovation.” 

“Integrating support for 12nm FinFET technology into AMALIA was an important step forward in ensuring our customers have the capabilities needed to use advanced process technologies,” said Syed Ahmad, VP of Product Development at Thalia.

The Circuit Porting tool allows IP designers to simulate and compare the outcomes of the original and ported designs, using their preferred simulator tool and see if any further adjustments are needed. This reduces the requirement for multiple iterations and saves design porting time.

“This latest enhancement to our software suite uses AI to provide a concise summary of key findings and recommendations taken from the standard report which, due to its comprehensive nature, can be hundreds of pages long. This drastically reduces the subsequent analysis time by providing the most relevant and critical information in a format that is quick and easy for senior designers and key decision makers to understand and make informed decisions,” said Ahmad.

The AMALIA platform has a proven track record, with validation across more than 50 IPs in domains ranging from RF and Baseband to PMIC and PLL/ADC, many of which are already in commercial use.
