Tela Innovations’ acquired Blaze-DFM, Inc.
Blaze DFM was founded in 2004 to develop and deliver electrical
DFM solutions for integrated device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless
semiconductor companies, and silicon foundries. “DFM has been my focus for nearly a decade and now, at the
90nm and 65nm nodes, manufacturing challenges have become acute.
Today, I see a lot of effort and resources directed at minor improvements
to existing solutions, but as an industry, we should be striving
for major, groundbreaking advancements – literally entire
technology nodes of cost and ROI improvements – rather than
settling for a few percentage points in incremental yield gains.”
