MunEDA partner in ANASTASIA+

Munich, Germany - Wednesday, July 10th, 2002

MunEDA announced today that it will join the MEDEA+ research project ANASTASIA+ as a full project partner starting from January 2003. The objectives of this project are to develop seamless top-down design methods for integrated analog, mixed-signal and digital systems and to achieve a high level of automation and reuse in the A/MS design process. These efforts are motivated by the urgent need to close the current gap in the industrial design flow between system specification and design on the one hand and block-level circuit design on the other hand. Hence, the goal is to get a continuous - tools and methods supported - design flow from top-level specification to layout, comparable to what is already available today in the pure digital domain. This is a crucial step in maintaining and leveraging the competitive edge Europe already has in AM/S-based system design.

Project partners of MunEDA are Infineon, Bosch, Philips, Atmel, EADS, Melexis, Sci-Worx, Cadence and Mentor Graphics.

"We are looking forward to cooperation with leading European and US-based semiconductor and EDA companies in the field of enhanced analog circuit sizing methodologies" stated Dr. Frank Schenkel, MunEDA Vice President Research & Development.
