ams design kits
The High Performance Interface Tool Kit (hitkit) is a unique utility kit consisting of software programs and libraries which contain full frontend (symbol, schematic, simulation model) and backend (full layout) information for the development of digital, analog and mixed signal circuits in a Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics or Synopsys CAE design environment.
To cover the most common hardware platforms, the hitkit is available to the growing number of users in the mixed signal domain mainly for linux/RHEL workstations.
Depending on the customer's design environment, needs and experience, several hitkit versions are available
The process design kits cover the whole design phase from behavioural simulation, synthesis for digital parts of the ASIC,
schematic capture, mixed-mode simulation, layout, design verification and back annotation.
The basic design kits enable the complete design flow in a Cadence Design Systems' framework, whereas the Mixed Signal design kits include ams' software to enable the integration of point tools in the design flow to add special functionality. The analog option enhances these kits to a multi-level mixed-signal design environment. A set of analog standard cells is integrated in this option.
