Chipworks' New ICInside SurveyorTM - Putting a Virtual SEM on Your Desktop, Accelerating the Use of Reverse Engineering in Forward Designs

Ottawa, Canada | Posted on July 11th, 2008

Chipworks (www.chipworks.com), the leader in reverse engineering and technical analysis of semiconductors and microelectronic systems, today announced ICInsider Surveyor™, a powerful tool that delivers thousands of extremely high magnification design images directly from Chipworks' labs to design engineers' desktops. Chipworks will be demonstrating the ICInside Surveyor™ during select appointments at Semicon West in San Francisco, July 15 - 17.

"This new capability puts a virtual scanning electron microscope (SEM) on our clients' desktops, giving them the ability to measure, label, and study the layers of a fully imaged device at extremely high magnification," says Julia Elvidge, President of Chipworks. "Our clients benefit by being able to examine every single nanometer across all interconnect layers of the hottest new device, or the structural details of an innovative new MEMS chip."

Developed in tandem with our clients, the ICInside Surveyor™ significantly reduces the time required to analyze competitive devices and integrate that analysis into product designs, resulting in lower development costs, faster time-to-market and more socket wins.

The ICInside Surveyor™ dramatically speeds delivery of world class reverse engineering analysis that is timely and accurate, allowing design engineers to rapidly understand and realize value from reverse engineering in forward design. The innovative application is a robust way to explore competitive designs and identify areas for die shrinkage, circuit extraction, and layout organization (e.g. ESD structures). For MEMS Architects, it also provides "Infinite Measurability" for building accurate simulations.

ICInside Surveyor™ is now available with seven reports on MEMS devices including:

-- Analog Devices ADXL330 3-axis accelerometer
-- Bosch SMB380 3-axis accelerometer
-- Bosch SMG070 gyroscope
-- Freescale MMA7260Q 3-axis accelerometer
-- Kionix KXM52 3-axis accelerometer
-- SiTime SiT8002 oscillator
-- STMicroelectronics LIS302DL 3-axis accelerometer

Additional reports will be available on an ongoing basis, and clients can request a custom analysis at any time.
