Grenoble, France, April 04, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Edxact SA, today announced it has joined Cadence's Connections program. This partnership program ensures a tight integration of third-parties tools within the Cadence design flow, as members are allowed to jointly analyze, develop and optimize the flow of data among their tools. It enables customers to benefit from both widely used flows and innovative point tools.
Edxact (Voiron, France) is part of a new category of members of the Connection program, called Emerging Solutions Members, which offer particularly cutting-edge tools. Edxact joined the Connection Partners program in order to integrate its Jivaro tool within Cadence Virtuosor custom IC design platform. Jivaro is a model reduction tool that helps IC designers to manage huge parasitic data files obtained from layout extraction tools. It will be tightly integrated within the Virtuoso design capture and simulation environment, and used as an add-on to the platform's extraction tools. This helps to prevent netlist handling errors.
Designers will be enabled to seamlessly manage the flow through an enhanced graphic interface called Salsa.
"We are pleased to participate in a close cooperation with the leading EDA vendor", said Mathias Silvant, Edxact President. "Our mutual customers will benefit from a validated and optimized design flow and accelerate their time to market."
The Jivaro technology is available on SunOS, HP-UX, and Linux platforms.
Founded in 2004, Edxact SA (Electronic Design: eXtraction, Analysis and Control Tools) focuses on electronic design tools aimed at physical verification tasks. Edxact's innovative and patent pending model order reduction technology helps accelerate extensive simulations needed for backend verifications in complex mixed-signal IC design cycles. Edxact's headquarters are based in Grenoble area, France.
