Industry's First At-Speed Desktop Debug Increases Market Opportunity for Embedded Test
San Jose, Calif., June 5, 2002 - LogicVision, Inc., (NASDAQ:LGVN), a leading provider of embedded test for integrated circuits, today announced the industry's fastest solution for at-speed silicon debug that is expected to save months in time-to-market. The comprehensive and integrated solution is targeted at the broad range of chips for consumer, computer, communications and other commercial applications. This solution enables the fastest at-speed debug at the engineer's desktop. With this innovative introduction, LogicVision has created a new market for its embedded test technology.
In beta trials of this silicon debug capability, LogicVision's customers have already witnessed over 100 times improvement in debug time as compared to conventional solutions. In one particular case, the first silicon consisting of 10 million gates and on .13 micron technology, the at-speed test successfully ran 45 minutes after the first silicon was received.
LogicVision's silicon debug solution is composed of software, intellectual property and hardware and is seamlessly integrated from design to debug. This immediate at-speed silicon debug capability can reduce the debug process time down to hours and days instead of many months using traditional at-speed debug methodologies. When the first silicon prototypes are received, LogicVision's desktop debug platform, called the Validator, with its software and the design test database is used to perform at-speed debug with the click of a few buttons.
LogicVision's Validator provides a fully functional desktop diagnostics environment for at-speed debugging of silicon incorporated with LogicVision's embedded test. This solution eliminates dependence on test vectors, test programs, and hard to access test equipment. LogicVision's solution is expected to increase the productivity of chip designers and test engineers during the critical phase of silicon validation and debug.
"Our introduction of this integrated solution for silicon debug helps address one of the largest areas of concern for our customers--transitioning from initial silicon prototypes to volume production," said Mukesh Mowji, vice president of marketing at LogicVision. "Our customers are focused on getting their products out to market quickly."
LogicVision's integrated silicon debug solution will be demonstrated at the 2002 Design Automation Conference in New Orleans, La., June 10-13, 2002, Booth #3052.
The integrated solution is available with deliveries projected for early Q302. For more product details and specific pricing, please contact LogicVision's sales offices via email at email@example.com.
