Incentia DesignCraft and TimeCraft Adopted By ITE as Its Synthesis and Timing Tapeout Software

Smallest Possible Chip Area and Power Consumption, Fast Runtime Critical for Tape-out Success

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and HSINCHU, Taiwan –August 9, 2005 – Incentia Design Systems, Inc., an EDA company in the synthesis and timing market, and ITE Tech. Inc. (Stock Ticker: 3014), one of Taiwan's leading IC design houses, today announced that ITE has adopted Incentia DesignCraft® and TimeCraft® software as the logic synthesis and timing analysis tools in its production tape-out flow.

DesignCraft’s integrated logic, DFT and low power synthesis capability helped ITE achieve the smallest possible chip area chip and power consumption, while meeting timing constraints. TimeCraft’s fast analysis speed shortened timing analysis turnaround time. Both tools were successfully used to tape out ITE’s designs and met ITE’s design requirements and expectations.

“We have adopted Incentia’s TimeCraft and DesignCraft for our front-end timing analysis and integrated logic, DFT and low power synthesis flow,” said Sander Kao, Director of Engineering Technology Div. at ITE. “We are very pleased that Incentia’s synthesis solution not only produced the smallest possible chip area and power consumption, but also greatly shortened our design turnaround time due to its fast runtime and smooth interface to our back-end ATPG and automatic Place & Route flow.”

“Incentia’s timing and synthesis software continues to demonstrate tape-out success at customer sites,” said Ihao Chen, President & CEO of Incentia. “We are pleased that our TimeCraft and DesignCraft delivered superior results and shortened the design cycle for ITE, a leading consumer electronics company”

Incentia Products
Incentia offers advanced complete timing and synthesis solutions to address the ever-growing design challenges in performance, runtime, and capacity for multi-million-gate, nanometer SoC designs.

TimeCraft is a full-chip, gate-level static timing analyzer (STA), offering fast analysis speed. Its rich features enable timing verifications at the pre-signoff (ECO iteration) stage and final signoff for all kinds of design applications. DesignCraft is a complete logic synthesis tool with integrated capabilities for optimizing area, power, timing and design-for-testability (DFT). It produces aggressive area reduction and low power results, with advantages in runtime and capacity. DesignCraft Pro� is a physical synthesis tool that accepts RTL or netlist designs and creates detailed placement. It offers fast turnaround time and allows users to perform physical performance prototyping and physical optimization as well as resolve design closure issues by simultaneously optimizing for timing, area, power, congestion and DFT.
