Hill and Santa Clara, California – May 11, 2004. OEA International, Inc.
(OEA), the industry leader in 3D interconnect extraction, and Legend Design
Technology, Inc. (Legend), the leading provider of semiconductor IP
characterization and simulation software, today announced that OEA has
entered partnership with Legend, and successfully qualified Legend's circuit
simulator MSIM for interconnect modeling with inductances and signal
today's high-speed circuit designs, signal integrity analysis and
interconnect modeling using 3D extraction is definitely required," said
Jerry Tallinger, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at OEA International,
Inc. "I am pleased to see the high accuracy of the results from qualifying
our interconnect modeling and signal integrity analysis tools with the MSIM
circuit simulator. The MSIM has been well proven in handling the RCLM
(Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors, MOSFETs) models, especially in the cases
of mutual inductances. Not only have we the superior accuracy, but also the
productivity gains with the high simulation speed of MSIM. We certainly look
forward to closer cooperation with Legend to ensure our customers receive
the best tools with highest quality."
signal integrity analysis and accurate interconnect modeling is the key for
first-silicon-success in deep-submicron and nanometer design," said Dr.
You-Pang Wei, President and Chief Executive Officer of Legend Design
Technology. "I am glad that OEA has validated Legend's MSIM as a
tool-of-choice for circuit simulation in signal integrity analysis. With
both Legend's MSIM and OEA's EDA tools, we believe customers will experience
a high Quality of Results for on-chip and package interconnects."
Legend Design Technology, Inc.
Design Technology, Inc. is a leading provider of characterization and
simulation software for semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) blocks in
the SoC designs. With an emphasis on productivity and value, Legend's CharFlo-Memory! toolset revolutionizes the time consuming and error prone
processes associated with memory characterization. CharFlo-Memory!-TD
(Technology Development) is used for semiconductor process optimization,
verification, and statistical characterization to enhance the productivity
and yields of process development.
MSIM is Legend's high-accuracy SPICE circuit simulator
with great convergence and extensive model support. Turbo-MSIM is Legend's
high-speed and high-capacity circuit simulator ideal for timing and power
simulation, and function verification. Both simulators are well designed for
nanometer technology challenges, and provide excellent price-performance.
