Mentor Graphics acquire Pyxis Technologies.
Pyxis Technology, Inc. delivers next generation IC routing software and service solutions for system-on-chip designs. Existing IC physical design tool architectures are aging and struggling to keep up. Their solutions are primarily focused on multiple iterative repair steps resulting in only minimal local improvements to the design. The Pyxis NexusRoute IC router is unique in the industry as it uses a new patent-pending architecture and one-pass flow to perform correct-by-construction optimization of IC performance, power and yield during the routing process.
Pyxis NexusRoute is a next generation
auto-router architected to address existing and emerging challenges for
physical design of nanometer technology integrated circuits. Its underlying
architecture enables the simultaneous optimization of design and manufacturing
closure resulting in up to 4X reduction in design closure with yield
improvements of up to 10%.
Pyxis Technology has a seasoned team of design,
manufacturing and EDA veterans representing hundreds of man years of experience
in the design and manufacturing of advanced microprocessor and ASIC
designs. Pyxis Professional Services leverages this combination of design and manufacturing
knowledge to help designers tackle the emerging design challenges of nanometer technology
