Aptina Adopts Apache's Noise and Power CAD Tools

Business Wire: Aptina has adopted Apache’s RedHawk-NX and Totem-MMX tools. Aptina will use Apache’s Totem-MMX, a transistor-level power / ground noise analysis and verification solution, to analyze and sign-off the huge analog sensor arrays which are implemented using custom-layout of transistors. The image sensor array is then compiled into accurate and efficient custom macro model (CMM) and imported to RedHawk-NX for a full-chip, mixed-signal dynamic power integrity simulation. The combination of Totem and RedHawk allows Aptina to consider the impact of analog transient supply currents on the digital logic of the SoC. Apache’s high-capacity integrated solution helps prevent power-related design failures.
