Motorola's Achievement in Memory
Characterization by Legend Design's tools
Without Legend Design Technology's SpiceCut™, we would not have
achieved these aggressive production goals.
Sunnyvale, Calif., June 5, 2002 - Motorola has adopted the
Legend Design Technology automated layout-based memory
characterization flow. Motorola's success with the tools has
resulted in unprecedented gains in productivity and fabrication
yield (.13um and below). Legend's focus on efficiency and accuracy
has consistently exceeded Motorola's expectations for EDA memory
Motorola's requirements, based on layout reality, are demanding
due to their large number of compilers and ten fabrication
technologies. Gary Hancock, Motorola Sr. CAD/Flow Engineer, said,
"Without Legend Design Technology's SpiceCut™, we would not have
achieved these aggressive production goals."
"We are extremely pleased to attain this high level of customer
satisfaction with Motorola." said Dr. You-Pang Wei, Legend's
President and CEO. "Layout circuit extraction can take an extremely
long time. Legend's SpiceCut is able to function on ring-shaped
extracted arrays providing greater than a 10X speed improvement in
layout extraction time. SpiceCut emulates the "rings" to full-size
arrays in building critical-path netlists for characterization. We
feel that by implementing flow changes to meet the modern design
challenges will determine who will thrive in the IC design world. We
are pleased that Motorola has chosen Legend's tools for success."
About Legend Design Technology
Technology, Inc. provides tools and services for a complete
characterization solution of SoC designs (embedded memory and
standard cell). With an emphasis on productivity and value, Legend's
success enabling products, SpiceCut, MemChar and MSIM, revolutionize
the time consuming and error prone processes associated with
characterization. SpiceCut can automatically build critical-path
circuits to reduce simulation time for characterization, especially
from post-layout extracted circuits with resistors and capacitors.
MemChar automatically characterizes memories and generates optimized
timing/power models. It identifies the 'true' setup and hold times
with 'glitch' prevention. MSIM is a characterization-oriented
circuit simulator with post-layout RC reduction capability. With
high accuracy, high speed and flexible licensing models, MSIM
provides excellent price-performance.
