Legend's Memory Characterization Tools Are Used To Achieve Optimum Performance and Silicon Success  

April 5, 2004 -- Legend Design Technology, Inc. has announced that Marvell has adopted CharFlo-Memory! to characterize embedded memory instances for its next-generation SRAM, Register File and ROM requirements. 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.

"Marvell's high performance, cost effective SoC designs are supported by a wide selection of embedded compiled and customized memories which require high-quality timing and power models to achieve optimum performance and silicon success. Legend's CharFlo-Memory! has enabled us to automate the characterization process for both compiled and specialized memory instances. Legend's 'Bi-Section' optimization is used to accurately characterize setup and hold time for best possible glitch-free operation." said Winston Lee, Design Engineering Manager at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.

"Accurate timing and power modeling of embedded memories is essential for silicon success of deep-submicron and nanometer SOC design," said Dr. You-Pang Wei, president and chief executive officer of Legend Design Technology. "With the adoption of Legend's CharFlo-Memory!, Marvell has acquired the premier solution for memory characterization and modeling."
