Sequence Continues Tradition Of Innovation With 22nd Patent

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 6, 2006— Sequence Design, the EDA leader in power-aware SoC design solutions, today announced it has extended its technology lead by adding the 22nd patent to the company's design-technology portfolio. U.S. Patent No. 7,117,457 has been granted to Jerry Frenkil, Sequence's general manager, Silicon Business Unit, CTO and VP of R&D, and describes a new "current scheduling system and method for optimizing MTCMOS (Multi-Threshold CMOS) designs."

"This one-of-a-kind technology becomes more significant for each process advance as standby-leakage power threatens to increase exponentially in the years ahead," Frenkil said. "It is the first fully automatic method for optimizing MTCMOS designs for worst-case current flow and voltage drop."

Frenkil currently holds six of Sequence's 22 U.S. patents, and the company has four additional low-power-design patents pending approval.

"Our ongoing commitment to R&D continues to bear fruit with breakthrough advances such as this new patented technology," said Vic Kulkarni, Sequence president and CEO. "Leakage power is a paramount concern with our customers as they move to 65nm, and this new approach will be a key tool in overcoming this growing challenge."
