Texas Instruments Successfully Performs Noise Immunity Validation of a DSP Design With CadMOS' PacifIC.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 6, 2000

CadMOS Design Technology, Inc. today announced that Texas Instruments (TI) has successfully used PacifIC to perform signal integrity analysis and noise immunity validation of a DSP chip.

PacifIC helped in detecting two cases in the design where noise could have caused a functional failure. Based on PacifIC's findings, TI's designers were able to make the necessary changes prior to tape out, saving a potential silicon re-spin.

"PacifIC is a versatile tool in performing noise analysis for different logic styles," said Nagaraj N.S., Senior Member of Technical Staff at Texas Instruments, Inc., "CadMOS is very responsive to our requirements and ideas. We've successfully performed full-chip noise analysis and plan to use PacifIC on future DSP designs."

"Ensuring our high performance DSP chips are free from noise problems is essential for us to meet our market windows and quality goals," said Mike Fazeli, Worldwide EDA manager for DSP based designs at Texas Instruments Inc. "Integration of EDA point solutions into our design environment is a major requirement for ease of use. We are pleased to see CadMOS has been receptive to our suggestions for open design environment architectures and their support of standard interfaces."

"We are very pleased to see PacifIC prove its value on large complex production designs such as TI's world class DSP processors," commented Charlie Huang, CEO of CadMOS. "TI was an early adopter of PacifIC and has taken proactive steps to deal with the noise epidemic that is plaguing designers using 0.18 micron processes or below," he added.

About PacifIC

PacifIC(TM) is an advanced static noise analyzer for high performance digital CMOS ICs. It exhaustively analyzes the impact of noise on digital circuits by analyzing all major sources of noise acting together in the worst allowable way. Noise sources considered include crosstalk, leakage, charge sharing and supply noise.
