InCyte add-on spells out all chip costs

A comprehensive IC economic analysis engine, designed to determine final chip cost, is the latest upgrade to InCyte, a chip estimation tool from Giga Scale Integration Corp. The engine, said to be the first of its kind, turns a high-level design specification into a complete budgetary quotation long before committing engineering resources to the task. The quotation includes a return-on-investment analysis detailing all the factors that make up the final product cost of an IC.
