Incentia to Showcase Its TimeCraft Timing Analysis and ECOCraft Post-Layout ECO Software at EDSFair 2009

SANTA CLARA, CA - January 21, 2009 -Incentia Design Systems, Inc., a technology leader in nanometer timing analysis and design closure solutions, will showcase its TimeCraft™ and ECOCraft software for the fastest analysis and closure in the Electronic and Design Solution Fair (EDSFair) from January 22 to 23 at booth number 213, in Yokohama, Japan.

Complete Advanced Nanometer Timing Analysis Solution
Incentia's TimeCraft has been the fastest Static Timing Analyzer (STA) in the market for Multi-Mode Multi-Corner (MMMC) designs. Its 2008.10 release effectively handles extremely large designs in excess of 50M gates using technology at 45nm and below. Incentia's complete timing solution also includes TimeCraft-LOCV for advanced location based OCV, TimeCraft-SSTA for statistical STA, TimeCraft-MT for multi-thread capability, TimeCraft-SI for signal integrity analysis, and TimeCraft-PCA for power analysis.

Post-Layout ECO Optimization Solution
ECOCraft is Incentia's design closure solution for post-layout Timing and Power ECO under MMMC environment. The ECOCraft-Timing module performs the ECO fixing for hold time and setup time violations. For hold ECO, it fixes the hold violations with the least amount of inserted buffers, while preserving setup times. For setup ECO, it fixes setup violations without introducing new hold violations. The ECOCraft-Power module reduces the leakage power of a pre-optimized design by another 10-25% through the efficient utilization of multi-threshold library cells. Built on top of TimeCraft's highly efficient timing engine, ECOCraft can achieve runtime performance improvements up to 10X.
