Apache Design Solutions, the technology leader in power and noise integrity for chip, package, and system convergence, today announced that the company has expanded its business relationship and technical collaboration with STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) to address the upcoming power and noise challenges associated with 45/32nm designs. Apache and ST’s long-standing cooperative efforts have resulted in the delivery of power and noise solutions for SoC power signoff, advanced low power design validation, custom IP analysis and modeling, and early-design power/ground grid prototyping. This collaboration expands ST’s use of Apache’s RedHawk and Sentinel platforms to address the upcoming design challenges such as 3D-IC power integrity, DDR jitter detection and prevention, chip-package-system convergence, and EMI analysis.

“We selected Apache as our partner for power and noise integrity, because of their solid technical vision, their specific focus, and their expertise in this very important and difficult area, as well as for the quality of their R&D and support teams,” said Philippe Magarshack, group vice president, Technology R&D, STMicroelectronics. “By collaborating with Apache, we expect to address early on the global power and noise issues brought by the 45/40nm and 32/28nm technology nodes. These early solutions will help us reduce system cost and mitigate signal-integrity and power-integrity-related design failure risks.”

“We are excited to further deepen our partnership with ST to address the upcoming convergence challenges for the 45/32nm designs,” said Andrew Yang, CEO of Apache. “We look forward to our continued technical collaboration and gaining their insight to further develop new technologies for power and noise integrity.”
