OpenAccess Based Architecture for Neolinear's Rapid Analog Design Flow
Developing tools for today's analog and mixed-signal design market requires swift response to ever-increasing design complexity and shrinking time-to-market windows. In this environment, a proprietary database would not only act as a barrier against tool adoption, but its maintenance would divert resources from developing core functionality. This paper describes the new Neolinear software architecture targeting analog and RF design flows. This OpenAccess (OA) based architecture allows Neolinear to quickly deploy its leading edge tools in our dynamic market.
