Takumi Technology Corp. is collaborating with Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Ltd. to validate Takumi’s design-for-manufacturing (DFM) optimization software, Takumi Enhance, on Chartered’s 65-nm process implementation of Common Platform technology.
Takumi Enhance is an automatic layout-optimization tool designed to improve performance and silicon yield. The software utilizes manufacturing data to analyze and detect hot spots. Patterns tested on wafers manufactured using 65-nm process technology from Chartered showed opportunities for gate-CD variation improvement and enhanced detection of lithography-related violations.
Takumi Enhance software is available now; contact Takumi directly for pricing information.
