Incentia's TimeCraft Selected by Stretch as Nanometer Static Timing Analyzer

TimeCraft Selected for Excellent Run-Time Performance

Santa Clara, CA and Sunnyvale, CA - May 13, 2008 - Incentia Design Systems, Inc., a technology leader in nanometer timing analysis and closure solutions, has announced today that Stretch Inc, the pioneer and leader in software configurable processors, has selected Incentia's TimeCraft™ as its static timing analyzer (STA) in nanometer design flow. TimeCraft's performance advantage has greatly shortened Stretch's timing analysis turnaround time in verifying large processor designs.

"Incentia's TimeCraft has proven to be a valuable tool for solving static timing analyzer problems in our nanometer design flow," said Sammy Cheung, vice president of IC design at Stretch. "Using it has dramatically cut down our total timing analysis turnaround time and improved our productivity. TimeCraft has demonstrated itself to be an excellent STA tool."

"We are excited that Stretch, the leader in software configurable processors, has chosen Incentia's TimeCraft as the static timing analyzer for verifying its complicated designs," said Ihao Chen, president & CEO of Incentia. "Stretch's selection of TimeCraft is a strong validation of our technology and competitive advantage in leading-edge chip designs. TimeCraft's success at Stretch continues our promise to support customers with the most advanced timing analysis technology."

About Incentia's TimeCraft
TimeCraft is a full-chip, gate-level static timing analyzer (STA) for timing sign-off. It is the fastest STA available in the market and has been proven through numerous customer tape-outs. TimeCraft has demonstrated unparalleled advantages in runtime and capacity that dramatically reduce total timing verification turnaround time. TimeCraft offers an advanced OCV feature that provides an effective solution to addressing the effects of statistical on-chip process variations. The advanced OCV uses variable derating factors based on the logic level and physical location to select the optimal derating factor for each timing path. This results in fewer timing violations, which allows design teams to rapidly achieve timing closure. The native engine-based implementation approach is easy to use and delivers unmatched performance in runtime and memory usage.
