PR-Newswire: In a rare appearence in the news Foveon announces it has been using Synopsys' Galaxy Custom Designer to desing its sensors, including 14MP one for Sigma SD15 DSLR, made in 0.18um process.

Synopsys is relying on Open Access database for its PDK and it's not compatible with the dominating Cadence proprietary PDK format. Most of the foundry image sensor PDKs are not available in Open Access. It is not clear who made the translation work for Foveon.
