Fujitsu/Fujitsu VLSI adopts Legend Design Technology's CharFlo-Memory! Toolset for Memory Characterization

SANTA CLARA, Calif., -- December 8, 2003 - Legend Design Technology, Inc. today announced that Fujitsu/Fujitsu VLSI has adopted CharFlo-Memory! to characterize embedded memory instances for next-generation SRAM and ROM compilers. Based upon layout-extracted circuit data with resistors and capacitors, Legend’s CharFlo-Memory! toolset has the capacity to generate accurate on-chip memory instance models at any PVT (process, voltage and temperature) corner.

"Fujitsu's memory compiler products offer SOC designers high reliability, accuracy, and simulation coverage for single- and dual-port SRAMs and ROMs. To provide accurate simulation models, we use Legend’s memory characterization tool, CharFlo-Memory!, to quickly produce models that reflect the reality of  the silicon. We are dedicated to providing our SoC designers with quality IP and the means to achieve design success." said, Yasuhiko Maki, Manager of Advanced LSI Development Division Advanced CMOS Technology Department at Fujitsu.

 “By choosing to use Legend’s CharFlo-Memory!, any instance from Fujitsu’s memory compilers can be characterized in real-time to provide superior quality and reliability. In addition, due to the precise modeling, engineers will be able to make their designs with more density and lower power consumption. Legend’s toolset has enabled the characterization task performed accurately and efficiently.” said, Takashi Ozawa, Chief Engineer of ASIC Division Macro Design Department at Fujitsu VLSI.

"Accurate timing and power modeling of embedded memories is essential for silicon success of deep-submicron and nanometer SOC designs," said You-Pang Wei, president and chief executive officer of Legend Design Technology. "With the adoption of Legend’s Charflo-Memory!, Fujitsu/Fujitsu VLSI has achieved the leading solution for memory IP characterization and modeling. We’re pleased to be working closely with Fujitsu/Fujitsu VLSI in meeting its needs for accuracy and throughput of state-of-the-art SOC designs.”

About Legend Design Technology, Inc.
Legend Design Technology, Inc. is a leading provider of characterization and simulation software for semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) in SoC designs. With an emphasis on productivity and value, Legend’s CharFlo-Memory! toolset which includes MSL, 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 can automatically characterize the memories and generate the ‘true’ timing and power models. MSL can automate memory characterization with customized setup of '.Lib-in and .Lib out'. MSIM is a characterization-oriented circuit simulator with post-layout RC reduction capability. With high accuracy, high speed and licensing models, MSIM can provide excellent price-performance.
