Pulsic Releases Unity 2008.1

Pulsic has announced the release of Unity 2008.1, to address the newly developing custom design automation market and a significant step in the evolution of Pulsic's flagship tool for custom-digital, mixed-signal and analog design.

After an extensive phase of testing using production designs with key customers, Unity 2008.1 is ready for release; a truly production ready solution for increasingly complex custom designs. Unity 2008.1 consists of four major components: UniPlan, a hierarchical floorplanner, UniPlace, an advanced custom placement tool, UniRoute, an automatic shape-based router with patented 'spine and stitch' routing technology, and UniEdit, an interactive editor. All four components are integrated into a single flow, providing unprecedented continuity between each element - therefore maximising design efficiency.

In addition to the four core components of Unity 2008.1, the benefit of an analysis environment helps designers make DFM and ECO decisions, with minimum disruption, allowing late design changes to be made seamlessly. Add to this a constraint driven system (width, layer, spacing, etc.) adhering to the complex design rules of today's designs, as well as Open Access and CDBA compliance, Unity 2008.1 is a very compelling solution for automating custom design.
