Europractice offers a flexible interface to "the Foundries", and provides customers access to the cell libraries and IP providers. When doing ASIC design, Europractice can give support on test insertion and ATPG (Automated Test Pattern Generation) to get the highest test coverage. Important know how from the test house will be used to improve the DFT (Design For Testability). As soon as a preliminary layout of the ASIC is ready, Europractice can give technical support on the package type and assembly details.
All circuits are checked against design rule violations, with the "golden rule files" from the foundry during the tape-out procedure. A correct GDS-II will be delivered to the foundry.
