Pulsic is an electronic design automation (EDA) company focusing on Precision Design Automation and offering production-proven floorplanning, placement, and routing software solutions for extreme design challenges at advanced nodes. Complementary to existing design flows, Pulsic technology delivers hand-crafted quality, faster than manual design or general-purpose software solutions
Unity™ – a revolutionary shape-based design platform
Our Unity technology platform gives designers all the productivity of standard cell design, with the quality of custom design. Unity is the platform for the Pulsic IC design solutions:
- Pulsic Planning Solution – Integrated, Full-Chip Planning and Top-level Routing for IC Design
- Pulsic Implementation Solution – Place and Route Implementation for Custom Digital and Analog Design
Animate is a revolutionary new automated Analog layout system that produces multiple, high-quality, fully routed layouts in minutes from an OpenAccess schematic. Built-in automatic constraint recognition recognizes the designer’s intent and automatically creates structures such as common centroid devices for diff pairs, current mirrors, etc. Its novel and unique multithreaded PolyMorphic layout technology concurrently generates optimal layouts which can then be extracted to generate early parasitics to explore design options in a fraction of the time it would take manually.
