SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 9, 2003--Incentia Design Systems, Inc., an EDA company in the synthesis and timing market, announced today that Toshiba Corporation has selected Incentia's TimeCraft?, a full-chip, gate-level Static Timing Analyzer (STA) for timing verification of its multi-million gate, high-performance SoC (System-on-Chip) designs. Toshiba and Incentia signed a multi-year agreement for widespread use of TimeCraft.

"As our design sizes continue to increase and timing constraints get more complex, reducing total timing verification turnaround time has become very critical for meeting our design schedule," remarked Tamotsu Hiwatashi, Senior Manager, Planning Department, System LSI Design Division, Toshiba Corporation. "TimeCraft satisfies our stringent STA requirements with it features, speed and capacity. Its fast analysis drastically shortens our total STA turnaround time. We are pleased with TimeCraft's performance and expect to see even more productivity improvements with future larger designs."

"It is a great recognition that Toshiba, one of the world leaders in electronics and semiconductors, has selected TimeCraft. We look forward to working closely with Toshiba's SoC design teams," added Ihao Chen, President & CEO of Incentia.
