An automated cell library creation tool has been unveiled by Zenasis Technologies Inc. Called ZenCell Factory, the software creates fully laid out standard cells, followed by verification, design rule checking, parasitic extraction and characterization. The tool can be used with the firm's ZenTime software, which takes standard cells in the critical path of a design and replaces them with faster ZenCell logic. Cells created using the tool would typically be added to an existing library, said the firm. The architecture of the library is kept, it added. Zenasis has completed several test designs, including modifying an ARM966 processor.
