Development and production of true SoCs and complex mixed-signal ASICs requires an ASIC company with wide system knowledge, vast range of design expertise, an extensive design automation toolset, advanced semiconductor processes and packaging options, and ability to perform production testing at high volumes with a high level of quality. Few companies have all of this under one roof but we do at Linear MicroSystems.
Our SoCFlexTM platform architecture makes use a vast library of intellectual property and standard cells to craft very complex designs quickly. Our design automation tool suite includes schematic capture, transistor level simulation, RF simulation, digital simulation, mixed-signal simulation, analog behavioral level modeling and simulation, timing analysis, synthesis, place and route, parasitic extraction, full custom physical layout, and layout verification. These tools enable to us to completely analyze the performance of a full SoC and very complex mixed-signal ASICs.
