San Jose, Oct. 22, 2018  — Empyrean Software (Empyrean), an IC and FPD (Flat Panel Display) EDA solutions and IP provider announced today that RICOH Electronic Devices Co., Ltd (REDC), a leading electronic device products supplier in Japan, has adopted its analog mixed-signal (AMS) IC frontend design platform as their main design flow.
Empyrean’s AMS IC frontend design platform covers full frontend design flow for analog and mixed-signal circuits by schematic editor (Empyrean Aether™ SE), true-Spice circuit simulator (Empyrean ALPS™), and Mixed-signal Design Environment (MDE), which ensure a smooth and efficient design task.
REDC has been leading the CMOS power supply technology in the world. It is one of the world’s largest producers of power management ICs for mobile applications and other IoT devices. With the specific process and circuit design technology, REDC and its partners aim to provide entrusted electronic device products.
“Many of our analog products get more complicated with our unique functions and therefore realizing a faster simulation for the increased test patterns and for a post layout data is crucial.” said Keiichi Yoshioka, General Manager of Design Technology Department, RICOH Electronic Devices Co., Ltd. “With the help of Empyrean’s analog/mixed-signal IC frontend design platform, we not only can achieve 2x-4x simulation performance with great accuracy, but also can build up a smooth design flow with various CCK checks. We also selected Empyrean for their excellent support on all kinds of customized features.”
“We sincerely appreciate REDC’s trust in Empyrean AMS IC design platform and service. We are very pleased to see that ALPS can handle the unique high voltage models and can speed up REDC’s post-layout simulation iteration,” said Kevin Wu, Senior VP of Huada Empyrean Software Co., Ltd. “Hopefully our cooperation could help REDC to accelerate the high reliability design flow of automotive electronics.”
