Silicon Canvas

Silicon Canvas, Inc. a privately held California corporation, was founded in 2001 by Dr. Hau-Yung Chen and other EDA veterans with combined 50+ years of custom design and EDA experiences. The company provides the next generation full custom layout solution to significantly increase the productivity and reduce time to market.

Silicon Canvas addresses the immediate needs of today's analog, mixed signals, large complex IC, ASIC, and SoC designs. Silicon Canvas' custom layout solution, Laker, provides more automation and high performance capabilities to any design projects, which requires the use of full custom layout editors, including but not limited to the layout creation for analog, mixed signal, and test key designs. It is also a perfect flow plug-in tool for complex ASIC, SoC designs to efficiently fix the timing closure issues, assemble top level blocks including the top cell signal routing and power routing or any special routing.

Laker is particularly positioned to handle applications such as high performance CPU, embedded controllers, computing systems, networking, multimedia, graphics and communications. Laker is a production proven product and has been used to tape out more than 400 chips from analog mixed signal to multi-million gate SoC designs.

Laker is the next generation full custom layout tool. In addition to the classical polygon editing features for the complete flexibility and controllability, it provides many intelligent automation and guidance to make the layout creation, editing tasks much more efficient and productive. With Laker, users can complete the layout projects and achieve the desired desity and quality 2 to 6 times faster than if using other layout editors. Laker's well-thought use models and powerful editing capabilities are based on a high performance and optimized 64-bit database engine, which makes all layout operations, including data translation, editing and viewing, very efficient and intuitive.
