The diversity of process derivatives and providers for the 180 nm technological node strengthens the inclination of engineering teams to attempt reducing the Time-To-Market and the risks related to a SoC design by either selecting their usual Silicon IP Provider or "free libraries". This development strategy narrows the potential profits of a chip as the risk to select an average performances library is increased. Dolphin Integration expands the options of SoC designers with the uHD-BTF Standard Cell Library. Already celebrated for its cost reduction capability, due to its RCSL (Reduced Cell Stem Library) structure, the uHD-BTF Library is specifically designed for the consumer industry, targeting area sensitive applications with high volume of fabrication. The uHD-BTF Library additionally enables fast migration to any process flavors or technological node. Thereby, SoC designers can easily target any optimized set of process options to guarantee the best RoI.
