Toshiba Standardizes on CCS Technology at 65nm

Toshiba Corporation standardized on the open source Liberty Composite Current Source (CCS) modeling technology for its CMOS5/TC320C 65-nanometer (nm) production libraries. The library is supported through Synopsys' Galaxy Design Platform, which is aimed at helping engineers improve system-on-chip (SoC) designs by minimizing guard-band margins during design implementation and sign-off. CCS provides modeling of nanometer effects on timing, signal-integrity, and power, and enables voltage variation modeling, which simplifies advanced low-power design flows and dynamic voltage and frequency scaling. "CCS was able to meet our criteria for stringent accuracy and scaling requirements," Takashi Yoshimori, technology executive of SoC Design at Toshiba, said in a statement. "The voltage and temperature scaling capabilities makes CCS very adaptable, simplifying design flows, especially for multi-voltage designs." "With the flurry of Liberty CCS-enabled IP coming online and support from industry leading companies such as Toshiba, we expect Liberty to remain the standard for library modeling in the industry," Antun Domic, senior vice president and general manager of the Implementation Group at Synopsys, said in a statement.
