Laguna Hills, CA (PressExposure) February 18, 2013 -- Excellicon Inc., an innovative provider of Timing Constraints Analysis and Debugging solutions for the automation of constraints authoring, completion, and validation, announced a partnership program with BaySand Inc., a provider of Metal Configurable Standard Cell (MCSC) technology and products, to address the complexity of timing constraints development and management for the benefit of both companies' customers.
This partnership was formed to address the issue of multiple iterations between design and implementation teams, in which the timing constraints (SDC) design and validation are often culprit for delays in product delivery schedules. BaySand's customers now have access to Excellicon tools that allow them to eliminate unnecessary iterations while ensuring a correct-by-construction set of timing constraints to accompany the design implementation. The users of Excellicon tools can start from scratch or leverage existing timing constraints files in order to take advantage of the MCSC products to achieve a shorter time-to-market. Customers can seamlessly generate a comprehensive set of timing constraints files in parallel with the implementation efforts managed by BaySand.
"As BaySand often performs RTL Signoff, Excellicon's tools enable us to cope with the challenge of obtaining complete and correct design timing constraints", said Jonathan Park, Executive VP and CTO of BaySand. "By deploying Excellicon's products in our design flow, we can provide to our customers a proper methodology for generating timing constraints or alternatively, qualify their existing design timing constraints. Minimizing timing-related iterations allows our customers to enjoy the benefits of fast turnaround time and reduced cost using our Metal Configurable Standard Cell technology and products. Our TeneX products line along with Excellicon's tools, enable us to offer an efficient design methodology for getting products to market quickly while avoiding exploding costs of SOC realization."
