Freescale Japan Adopts Cadence Low-Power Solution to Develop Advanced Power Management Chip

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jan 20, 2009 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global design innovation, announced today that Freescale Semiconductor Japan used the Cadence® Low-Power Solution to design, verify, and tape out a multi-channel power management IC for portable digital audio/video products such as digital still cameras. Using the Cadence Low-Power Solution, Freescale achieved a significant power savings for the device and a 20 percent reduction in design time.

"In today's advanced portable product market, power consumption is both a priority and a challenge," said Kimio Ueda, Ph.D., General Manager of Sendai Design Research and Development Center at Freescale Semiconductor Japan. "Usually, that would translate into longer design times. The highly integrated Cadence Low-Power Solution helps us to quickly and effectively create more power-efficient designs, which provide huge benefits to our customers."

The complex power management device is built on Freescale's mixed-signal SMARTMOS™ technology and is capable of managing multiple power modes. Freescale used the CPF-enabled Cadence Low-Power Solution as a comprehensive design flow to design the multiple supply voltages and power shutoff capabilities in the chip, resulting in a small, fast and cool device.

The Incisive® Enterprise Simulator in the integrated design flow allowed Freescale to achieve fast verification of the power domains for quick, accurate design. Cadence Encounter® RTL Compiler and Encounter Digital Implementation System provided automated power domain handling capabilities for reduced power consumption using the MSV and PSO techniques.

"The CPF-enabled Cadence Low-Power Solution has been demonstrated yet again to be a mature and production-ready low-power solution," said Steve Carlson, vice president of Low-Power Solutions at Cadence. "The power management IC tapeout experience at Freescale Semiconductor clearly illustrates that the Low-Power Solution delivers the capability to quickly create small and fast designs that consume a small amount of power."
