SILICON METRICS TAPS OEA INTERNATIONAL FOR SILICONSMART 3-D EXTRACTION
Santa Clara, CA - May 22, 2000 - Today, OEA International, Inc. and Silicon Metrics Corporation (Austin, TX) announced an agreement that will allow Silicon Metrics to incorporate into its SiliconSmart product line embedded versions of OEA International, Inc.'s NET-AN and CELL-AN products featuring the Cheetah II 3-D extraction technology. Silicon Metrics has plans to incorporate NET-AN and CELL-AN capabilities into future SiliconSmart products within the next 2 quarters.
Under terms of this agreement, Silicon Metrics will license OEA's embedded tools for VLSI device and interconnect modeling, extraction, and GDSII visualization. Specific financial terms were not disclosed.
Targeted to those SoC designers working on below 0.25µ designs, and require the highest accuracy timing sign-off that 3-D extraction enables, users of Silicon Metrics' SiliconSmart TSO (timing sign-off) product will now be able to create instance specific operating point (ISOP) path models that account for over-the-cell routing and exact loading conditions.
"Clearly, our users are beginning their next projects with demands placed on their design time, innovation and expertise in ways not conceived five years ago. Today, 3-D extraction is must have for those customers working with nanometer design technologies," said Silicon Metrics' Rod Dudzinski, vice president of marketing.
"Our customers know that high-accuracy extraction is critical to achieving timing sign-off for SoCs," said Jerry Tallinger, vice president of marketing & sales at OEA. "We are excited to provide Silicon Metrics with key technology components that provide transistor-level timing sign-off confidence for gate-level designers."
