Schematic Porting, Circuit Porting and IP Migration

MunEDA WiCkeD™ Tool Suite

SPT Schematic Porting Tool

MunEDA WiCkeD SPT Schematic Porting Tool is an EDA tool solution for horizontal and vertical circuit migration & IP porting of custom IC circuits between different process technologies. SPT helps the analog circuit designer with migrating analog IP

  • from older process nodes to newer technologies (IP reuse)
  • from one foundry to another (second sourcing)
  • from in-house process technologies to foundry technologies (going fabless)

Features of WiCkeD SPT Schematic Porting Tool:

  • Converts devices on original PDK to corresponding devices in the new target PDK
  • Automated schematic migration 10-100X faster than manual porting: within seconds instead of tedious manual work for weeks
  • Easy setup by a convenient GUI interface for all operations instead of error-prone in-house scripting
  • Flexible property mapping with configurable rules
  • Handles terminal name changes, different, extra or deleted terminals
  • Handles different positions, placement and orientation of schematic symbols
  • Supports output schematic & output device stretching
  • Includes user reference documentation for installation, configuration and usage
  • Fully integrated into Cadence® Virtuoso® custom design platform
  • Customer & silicon proven with many different foundry PDK
