Spectral Introduces Best in Class Memory Development Platform (MDP) for Embedded Memory Designs

Memory Compilation, Analysis & Characterization Tool, Reference Designs Targeted at Library Developers Building Circuits for SOCs

SOMERVILLE, NJ--(Marketwired - May 28, 2013) -  Spectral Design & Test Inc. today announced the industry's most advanced graphical tiling, analysis, modeling & characterization solution for 20nm and lower technologies. Existing commercial solutions for memory compiler development are software intensive and do not directly address the needs of memory designers in terms of ease of use. The Memory Development Platform comprises of various EDA solutions to accelerate design creation and verification of custom memory design and memory compilation. The first point solution namely MemoryCanvas is a floorplan driven memory compilation tool that eliminates the need to write thousands of lines of complex source code. MemoryTime is a comprehensive software platform that ties behavioral models to final timing databases and enables a very high quality view generation for timing power and noise analysis. MemoryIP is a software solution that encapsulates reference designs into the Memory Development Platform for quickly retargeting & deployment to sub 28nm process nodes. "Spectral is partnering with leading edge SOC designers from the industry's largest semiconductor companies to define a software platform that can accelerate design productivity without compromising quality," said Deepak Mehta, Principal at Spectral Design & Test Inc. "Spectral has over 200 years of experience in developing EDA/IP solutions, our architects have carefully crafted a highly optimized design platform that encompasses the needs of memory designers."

Pricing and Availability
MDP tools are available now with list pricing starting at $200K per license. Spectral will demonstrate their point solutions at the 2013 Design Automation Conference at the Si2 booth #1427.

About MDP
It is the first industrial strength EDA platform that offers a comprehensive solution from model generation, complex tiling, critical path generation, bitcell analysis, design margin analysis to final verification of different views generated by Spectral's flagship product MemoryCanvas & MemoryTime. Existing commercially available solutions are general purpose solutions that are hard to use and do not meet the growing needs of memory designers. Additionally, MemoryIP provides a comprehensive set of reference designs encapsulated MDP that can be modified and retargeted to multiple process technologies. The developers of memory compilers can deploy MemoryIP license free or using their own preferred licensing scheme. Compilers developed using MDP can generate timing either by using 3rd party simulators (multiple EDA solutions) or can be pre-characterized using a built in estimator. MDP provides full support for various types of memories namely RAMs ROMs CAMs RFs.
