IP Solutions to Enable Designers to Integrate Toggle-mode DDR NAND Technology Into Upcoming Computing, Networking and Portable Electronic Devices
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 11, 2008 -- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), is first to announce its comprehensive support of Toggle-mode DDR NAND memory with complete, end-to-end intellectual property (IP) products that enables quick development of system-on-chip (SoC) designs. Denali's products include the industry-leading, high-speed Databahn(TM) NAND controller, soft PHY, and MMAV(TM) simulation models for Toggle-mode DDR NAND Flash devices, enabling efficient development and testing of Toggle-mode DDR NAND memory applications found in a variety of next-generation video servers, laptops, enterprise storage, solid state disks, ultra-mobile and gaming devices. Details about Denali's current Databahn Toggle-mode DDR NAND solutions are available in an on-demand webcast at: www.denali.com/events/webcasts.
"Customers now have access to high-quality IP that enables them to quickly deploy Toggle-mode DDR NAND memory in their product designs, and maximize the benefits of its high-performance and low power features," said Robert Pierce, senior director of NAND Flash IP at Denali Software. "With our advanced Databahn NAND controller and PHY solution, we are enabling this new technology to be easily adopted by system and SoC designers. Higher speed NAND devices such as the Toggle-mode DDR NAND and other high-speed NAND technologies require more precise interface timing as well as reduced software overhead to provide the maximum capabilities for performance and power for SLC and MLC devices. Our comprehensive flash solution minimizes time-consuming hardware and software development and leverages best-in-class MMAV support, thus enhancing verification productivity and validating Toggle NAND interface, both at the block and system level."
"Samsung welcomes the development of tools and technology that enable the rapid introduction of Toggle-mode DDR NAND solutions," said Kevin Lee, vice president, Technical Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor. "Denali's leading-edge IP products for Toggle-mode DDR NAND should ease the adoption of new and emerging high-speed memory technologies for consumer electronics."
About Databahn NAND Flash Controller
Denali's proven Databahn NAND Flash controller IP is a complete embedded flash controller. The controller is developed for ease of integration, performance, quality and developed for use in ASIC and FPGA's platforms. The controller supports all major flash suppliers' devices as well as the newest high-speed interfaces, Toggle-mode DDR NAND. This ability reduces the qualification cycle and software effort required by many other lesser solutions.

About Toggle-mode DDR NAND
Toggle-mode NAND is a new, soon-to-be-standardized, high-speed memory solution for consumer electronics that will use a dual-date rate interface to substantially increase read and write performance of NAND Flash memory. An asynchronous technology, Toggle-mode DDR products will perform a dual-edge operation for data input and output, using a bi-directional data strobe to effectively align data, with backward compatibility to legacy NAND for easier migration.
