Spectral Design Introduces the Industry's First Comprehensive Modeling, Analysis & Characterization Solution for MemoriesMemory Characterization & Compilation Tool Targeted at Memory Designers Building Circuits for SOCs (May 31, 2012)
SOMERVILLE, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 05/31/12 -- Spectral Design & Test Inc. today announced its first release of MemoryTime the industry's first comprehensive Memory design modeling, analysis & characterization solution. Existing commercial solutions are targeted toward memory characterization and fail to address the specific needs of memory designers in terms of detailed margin & statistical analysis that dictate device optimization and yield. MemoryTime is a comprehensive software platform which ties behavioral models to final timing databases and enables a very high quality view generation for timing power and noise analysis. MemoryTime also supports full complex memory compiler based characterization including an ultra fast and highly accurate estimation engine from a pre-characterized database. "Spectral is focused on delivering point solutions in the form of Software & Design IP to enable design acceleration for the memory design community," said Deepak Mehta - Principal at Spectral Design & Test Inc. "In conjunction with top tier design teams and our own breath of experience in Memory Design, our architects have defined a best in class solution to cost effectively develop optimized instances and Memory Compilers."
Pricing and Availability
MemoryTime is available now and list pricing starts at $200K per license.
It is the first industrial strength EDA tool that provides a comprehensive model generation and characterization capability targeted for memory designs. Existing commercially available solutions are general purpose solutions that do not meet the growing needs of memory designers. Spectral's solution encapsulates bitcell analysis, device sizing, design margin calculations and final design characterization in one concise database. MemoryTime eliminates the need to write scripts and manually create analysis data and timing data for industry standard EDA tools. MemoryTime is built grounds-up in C++ with a tcl interface to help designers customize measurements and output EDA views etc. The first release of the software is released on a RedHat Linux 5.X platform. MemoryTime is a companion tool to MemoryCanvas, a highly efficient physical tiling engine.
