DongbuAnam Semiconductor Selects InCyte From Giga Scale IC for Early Silicon Estimation and Exploration

CUPERTINO, CA and SEOUL, KOREA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2005 -- DongbuAnam Semiconductor and Giga Scale Integration Corporation (Giga Scale IC) announced today that DongbuAnam Semiconductor has selected InCyte™ as its tool of choice for early silicon technical and economic estimation and analysis.

Giga Scale IC's InCyte tool performs rapid estimates of IC cost, yield, die size, power, and leakage to within five to ten percent accuracy of final silicon. Users may view alternate design possibilities across various technology nodes, process variants, and IP options, at the architectural stage of the design flow. InCyte allows DongbuAnam Semiconductor to perform 'what-if' analysis through careful scrutiny of the technical and economic ramifications of their design decisions, effectively reducing total IC cost and significantly minimizing the duration of the design cycle.

"InCyte fills a critical gap in our arsenal of EDA tools," said Dr. Heung Joon Park, Senior Executive Vice President, of DongbuAnam Semiconductor. "Early, accurate estimations of die size, power, leakage, and yield made possible by InCyte help us to deliver higher quality, lower cost IC's to our customers."

"Giga Scale IC is delighted that DongbuAnam Semiconductor has elected to utilize InCyte's fast and accurate silicon estimation technology," said Giga Scale IC president Adam Traidman. "We are confident that their customers will become the ultimate beneficiaries of InCyte, in terms of reducing IC cost, shortening design time, and exceeding performance expectations for designs targeted at DongbuAnam Semiconductor's 130nm process technology."
