November 8, 2011 -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Corp. is now offering cost-competitive compact standard cell libraries targeting low-power applications in 0.18µm and 0.35µm technologies.
The new standard cell library features a smaller cell area and lower operating power by incorporating a compact design architecture. The cell area is reduced by up to 25% and the operating power consumption by a maximum of 60% compared with the use of conventional design libraries. In addition, these new compact standard cell libraries have the advantage of increased speed in addition to leakage and latch-up control when compared to previous compact standard cell libraries. Any weakness to latch-up is sharply reduced by using a self-well bias contact scheme.
