Toshiba to Extend its Deployment of Pulsic Tools and Services

Pulsic Limited announces that Toshiba will be extending its deployment of Pulsic tools and services in order to maximize efficiency and quality of results for the layout of their next generation Flash Memory designs.

Toshiba has already been using Pulsic's software for several years to automate the layout of its Flash Memory designs, increase productivity and speed time-to-market. With continual development and consistently high level of results, Pulsic's solutions have become an established part of Toshiba's Physical Design flow. Now, Toshiba Corporation has decided to expand its usage of the tools in recognition of the leading-edge technology, roadmap, and the quality of support that Pulsic delivers.

For advanced memory, where high speed and accurate data transmission is needed, a high-quality layout is essential. Historically, virtually no automation tools have been applied to the layout of these designs, but Pulsic has developed a unique suite of tools for custom designers that have made automation possible in many areas of the layout.

Specifically, Pulsic's patented Spine & Stitch routing technology has delivered a great leap forward in productivity by delivering automation to the routing often found in the layout of peripheral logic for DRAM, SRAM and Flash memory - which are typically characterized by extreme aspect ratios, producing long and narrow routing footprints. The "spines" are very long and the stitches are shorter orthogonal tracks. This technology has been widely adopted by the leading memory design companies worldwide.
