TowerJazz Panasonic offers PDK for image sensor process
A custom physical design kit developed with Synopsys Inc. targets smartphone, security and medical x-ray applications. This allows the use of the Galaxy Custom Designer schematic editor and simulation environment, the Laker layout editor, HSPICE, CustomSim and FineSim circuit simulators, IC Validator physical verification, and StarRC parasitic extraction.
The 65nm CMOS image sensor process supports pixel sizes down to 1.12-micron and is already in production producing image sensors for digital still cameras.
