Get impressed by our benchmark process design kit “PDK”
ams’ benchmark process design kit “PDK” (High Performance Interface Tool-Kit) provides all the building blocks required to create complex analog mixed-signal designs using our process technologies. The PDK includes highly accurate circuit simulation models, a set of fully silicon qualified libraries, IP blocks, verification rule sets and special utilities.
ams PDK enables product developers to concentrate on IC design rather than on setting up and mastering the EDA environment. This leads our Partners to:
- Shorter Time to Market
- Complete Environment for First Time Right Designs
- More Efficient Designs (Die Size, Performance, Yield)
The advantages and benefits of the PDK are:
- All major EDA tools supported
- All process technologies supported with latest versions of EDA tools
- "Plug and Play" for IC designers
- All devices supported throughout the whole design flow
- Complete modeling of active and passive devices
- Supports complete flow for RF and mixed signal (devices, models, libraries,...)
- Full mixed-signal library concept: digital, analog, special libraries (for noise sensitive applications)
- PDK is fully compliant with our QS9000 quality flow and well tracked with release control, patches and customer interface system
- PDK developers provide technical support
Sign a License Agreement
The PDK License Agreement contains all terms and conditions of a non-exclusive and non-transferable right and license to use the ams process design kit “PDK” with all its included software programs and libraries. A printable version of the PDK License Agreement is available on our Foundry Support Server
