OMMIC is a member of the Philips group of companies and is working on the leading-edge research, design, and manufacture of GaAs semiconductor devices using integrated circuit (IC) and epitaxy technologies.
We have a rapidly increasing number of customers requesting support for the OMMIC GaAs foundry processes," said Ted Miracco, AWR(TM) executive vice president.
The quality of the EDA package, such as AWR's Microwave Office design suite, and the quality of the OMMIC developed libraries, becomes increasingly more important with the introduction of higher-performance processes and the need for a "right-first-time" design," continued Leblanc.
OMMIC has a long history of working as an open foundry.
The OMMIC PDKs for Microwave Office 2002 software will be available Q4 and will be free of charge to AWR customers with the complete Microwave Office 2002 design suite.
The QUB group has a number of well-established links with UK and international industry including OMMIC
, AVX-Kyocera, M/A-COM and TDK, which has an industrial implant on site at the QUB HF laboratories.
