Deca Technologies

2021 Edition. In Herb Reiter Design Tool Provider of the Year

In 2020, Deca Technologies introduced Design During Manufacturing (DDM) capabilities to support its licensees and partners in implementing Adaptive Patterning™ (AP). AP Live, a cloud-based solution that eliminates the need for dedicated on-site hardware and software, allows customers to gain early access to AP and experience its power for improving yield, scaling technologies, reducing cost and enhancing performance. To effectively implement AP Live, Deca created a complete ecosystem comprising three components including AP Studio, AP Connect, and AP Engine. AP Studio is integrated into EDA partner software to provide a best-in-class design environment for heterogeneous integration, system-in-package (SIP) and chiplets. AP Engine efficiently performs real-time design on every package as it flows through the manufacturing process. AP Connect software is integrated directly into high-volume manufacturing equipment, so it connects with AP Studio design systems and the AP Engine to make tools AP-ready. When it’s time for high-volume production, the same AP Live system is proven ready for on-site deployment, without any change to the interface or results.
