Dolphin Technology Endorses Legend Design’s MSIM Circuit Simulator for Signal Integrity Analysis of High-Speed IO Circuits

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and SANTA CLARA, Calif., -- May 18, 2004 - Dolphin Technology, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) blocks and Legend Design Technology, Inc., a leading provider of characterization and simulation software for SoC designs, today announced that Dolphin Technology successfully validated Legend’s circuit simulator MSIM for signal integrity analysis of high-speed IO circuits, and timing and power characterization of standard/IO cell library for deep sub-micron and nanometer technology.

“For 90nm technology, BSIM4 model including the enhanced stress effects or LOD model is critical for both timing and power simulation, especially in leakage power. MSIM circuit simulator with BSIM4.3.0 model has been well proven in delivering silicon-accurate results,” said Mo Tamjidi, president and CEO at Dolphin Technology. “Besides stringent requirements for the timing, power and functional simulation of our high-speed IO designs, we also perform signal integrity analysis and frequency-domain simulations. We are glad to see MSIM delivering high-accuracy results and performance enhancements in all aspects of our simulation and analysis. We certainly look forward to closer cooperation with Legend to ensure our designs meet the requirement of highest quality.”

“For high-speed IO designs, circuit simulation for signal integrity analysis need to be accurately performed to ensure the design excellence,” said Dr. You-Pang Wei, President and Chief Executive Officer of Legend Design Technology. “I am pleased that Dolphin Technology has successfully validated Legend’s MSIM as a tool-of-choice for circuit simulation on high-speed IO circuit designs. With MSIM circuit simulator, we believe customers will experience a high Quality of Results in simulation and analysis of leading-edge circuit designs, especially for 90nm technology.”
