LogicVision Uses Dolphin Technology Memory and Libraries in Corporate Training Material
San Jose, Calif., April 22, 2002 - LogicVision, Inc., (NASDAQ:LGVN), a leading provider of embedded test IP for integrated circuits and systems, today launched a broad partnership with Dolphin Technology, Inc., a provider of performance-optimized SoC memory cores and performance-matched standard cell libraries and Input/Outputs (IOs).
The partnership between Dolphin and LogicVision will enable tighter integration of memory and logic library SoC design elements with embedded test SoC design techniques. LogicVision and Dolphin are planning for an integrated, self-test and repairable memory capability for Dolphin's high-performance memory offerings. As part of the agreement, Dolphin's performance memory cores and standard cell libraries will become the standard design elements in LogicVision's IP training and tutorial material.
"By launching this partnership with LogicVision, we're able to provide a comprehensive performance solution to our customers," said Mo Tamjidi, president of Dolphin. "Our customers deploy Dolphin's performance products in designs which require reliability. With LogicVision, we can deliver further on those requirements."
"Our partnership with Dolphin represents a major step toward fully integrated memory cores and library SoC design elements with embedded test," noted Mukesh Mowji, vice president of marketing at LogicVision. "As a result of this collaboration, we expect to offer our mutual customers the opportunity to acquire performance-optimized, high-quality design elements for very dense, highly complex SoC designs. We look forward to the growth of this partnership and the benefits that it will bring to our customers."
