Focus will be advanced power reduction and 3D design
Atrenta Inc., the leading provider of Early Design Closure® solutions to radically improve design efficiency throughout the IC design flow, announced today the signing of a multi-year collaboration agreement with CEA-Leti, the Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the French Atomic Energy Commission. The joint development work defined in the collaboration agreement will take place at Atrenta's R&D center in Grenoble that was recently announced by Atrenta France SAS.
"3D 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. "We look forward to collaborating with Atrenta France SAS to advance the state of the art in these areas."
The work defined by the collaboration agreement will focus on two primary development areas. First, 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. And second, the analysis and partitioning of 3D stacked die devices, also at the architectural and RTL levels. Stacked die devices are now being made possible in part by through silicon via (TSV) semiconductor process technology advances.
"Atrenta has a long history of collaborating with our customers in the Grenoble area," said Dr. Ajoy Bose, chairman, president and CEO of Atrenta. "We look forward to working with those customers alongside the substantial technical resources of CEA-Leti. This organization provides an excellent environment for advanced research."

CEA is a French research and technology public organisation, with activities in four main areas: energy, information technologies, healthcare technologies and defence and security. Within CEA, the Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology (CEA-Leti) works with companies in order to increase their competitiveness through technological innovation and transfers. CEA-Leti is focused on micro and nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems, to biology and healthcare or photonics. Nanoelectronics and microsystems (MEMS) are at the core of its activities. As a major player in MINATEC campus, CEA-Leti operates 8,000-m˛ state-of-the-art clean rooms, on 24/7 mode, on 200mm and 300mm wafer standards. With 1,200 employees, CEA-Leti trains more than 150 Ph.D. students and hosts 200 assignees from partner companies. Strongly committed to the creation of value for the industry, CEA-Leti puts a strong emphasis on intellectual property and owns more than 1,500 patent families.
Atrenta is the leading provider of Early Design Closure® solutions to radically improve design efficiency throughout the IC design flow. Customers benefit from Atrenta tools and methodologies to capture design intent, explore implementation alternatives, validate RTL and optimize designs early, before expensive and time-consuming detailed implementation. With over 150 customers, including the world’s top 10 semiconductor companies, Atrenta provides the most comprehensive solution in the industry for Early Design Closure.
