Atrenta, CEA-Leti Sign Multi-Year 3-D Contract
GRENOBLE, France, Oct. 28, 2010 — Atrenta Inc. announced Wednesday that it has signed a multi-year collaboration agreement with CEA-Leti, the Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the French Atomic Energy Commission.
The joint development work will take place at the company’s R&D center in Grenoble.
The work under the collaboration agreement will focus on two primary development areas. The first will address techniques to analyze, predict and reduce the power consumption of advanced microelectronic devices at the early stages of design, including the architectural and register transfer language (RTL) levels. The second aspect addresses the analysis and partitioning of 3-D stacked die devices, also at the architectural and RTL levels.
“3-D design and advanced power reduction represent two areas of significant interest for the microelectronics community that CEA-Leti serves,” said Dr. Ahmed Jerraya, head of design programs and research director at CEA-Leti.
Atrenta provides Early Design Closure solutions to improve design efficiency throughout the IC design flow.
