Dolphin RAMpilerTM based memories fully and automatically supported by LogicVision’s next generation ETMemory(TM) solutions
San Jose, Calif. — June 27, 2006 — LogicVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN), a leading provider of yield learning capabilities that enable its customers to quickly and efficiently improve product yields, and Dolphin Technology, Inc., a provider of performance-optimized SoC memory cores and performance-matched standard cell libraries and Input/Outputs (IOs), today announced the availability of an integrated and comprehensive self-testable and self-repairable memory solution for advanced nanometer designs. The integrated solution consists of Dolphin’s high performance 90nm and 65nm memories and LogicVision’s recently announced ETMemory solutions. About Dolphin Technology
To achieve this advanced solution, enhancements were made to both Dolphin’s RAMpiler and RAMpiler+ memory compilers and to LogicVision’s LV2005 automation tools to provide a completely seamless and fully automated embedded test and repair integration flow. The companies are also closely cooperating to ensure that Dolphin memories are provided the highest quality of test possible and the most optimal automated repair scheme.
“A successful memory strategy today requires not only the right memories, but the right test and repair capabilities as well” said Mo Tamjidi, president of Dolphin. “The combination of our memories with LogicVision’s embedded test technology results in a best in class solution in the repairable embedded memory space, enabling our customers to reduce their time to market while maximizing yield.”
“Dolphin memories are used by many of our customers,” said Jim Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision. “This integration effort will ensure that these customers can easily achieve the industry leading quality and yield benefits provided by our solutions.”
Dolphin Technology, Inc., is a leading provider of high performance Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) blocks that include embedded memory and memory compiler products, high performance and standard IOs and high performance standard cell libraries.
