SynCira Corporation was founded with the goal of developing analog design EDA tools that significantly reduce the time-to-market pressure faced by semiconductor companies working on analog mixed signal circuit designs and layouts.
SynCira is a southern California based EDA company founded in September 2004.
The art and practice of analog IC layout has not changed significantly in over 30 years. Sure, LVS is near perfect, DRCs cover almost every rule and SDL eliminates Pcell generation; but placement and routing are still manual efforts. Furthermore, the electrical layout constraints (ie. matching, routing capacitance, ground drops, current density, antenna effects), require experts to properly lay out.
