Triad Semiconductor Adopts Incentia¡¦s TimeCraft Static Timing Analyzer

Santa Clara, C alifornia, and Winston-Salem, N orth Carolina ¡V January 10, 2012 ¡VIncentia Design Systems, Inc., a technology leader in timing analysis, logic synthesis, and design closure solutions, today announced that Triad Semiconductor (TRIAD) has implemented Incentia¡¦s TimeCraft™ static timing analysis software in its Via-Configurable Array (VCA) mixed-signal ASIC design flow. . TimeCraft™ is Incentia¡¦s complete timing solution offering static timing analysis (STA), signal integrity (SI), power analysis (PA), and constraint management (CM).

¡§Triad Semiconductor delivers mixed signal IC solutions using a radically different approach that allows a designer to integrate analog and digital circuitry into an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) at a fraction of the cost and time normally required¡¨, stated James Kemerling, CTO of Triad. ¡§We can achieve this by our unique patented VCA technology, which gives the designer the ability to configure and interconnect a rich set of mixed signal resources using only a ¡¥single¡¦ via mask layer. We have made Incentia¡¦s TimeCraft static timing analysis tool a key part of our mixed signal ASIC design flow. We were very impressed with the features, performance, ease of use and the overall value of this tool, as well as Incentia¡¦s prompt and professional customer support.¡¨

¡§We are pleased that Triad Semiconductor has selected TimeCraft for their mixed-signal design flow, using VCA technology,¡¨ said Ihao Chen, president and CEO of Incentia. ¡§TimeCraft met the requirements in features, fast adoption, affordability, and fast turnaround. We are looking forward to a strong business relationship with Triad Semiconductor¡¨
