PALO ALTO, Calif., August 27, 2003--Denali Software, Inc., the leading provider of semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) and electronic design automation (EDA) tools for chip interface design and verification, today announced an agreement with HP to provide configurable memory controller cores and memory modeling solutions for the design and verification of chips used in HP’s imaging and printing products.
Denali now provides HP design teams with Databahn™ memory controller cores, which are used in HP designed chips to interface with double-data-rate (DDR) memory devices. The cores are configurable and programmable to deliver optimal memory data transfers to match the requirements for various end product designs from HP. The deal also provides HP with Denali’s MMAV™ product for modeling and simulating the interactions between the HP chips and external memory devices for design verification and performance analysis.
"Denali has demonstrated expertise in their ability to deliver high-quality IP and EDA tools for memory system development," said Jim Nottingham, section manager, HP Imaging and Printing group. "We’ve gone to silicon with a number of chips that use the Databahn memory controllers for interfacing with DDR memory devices. These solutions from Denali speed our development efforts and allow us to focus on innovative designs for imaging and printing products."
"HP is the commanding leader in a very competitive market—their ability to consistently deliver the right mix of technology and value is very impressive," said Mark Gogolewski, CTO, Denali Software, Inc. "Memory systems play a critical role in these applications. We’ve supported HP with memory controllers and memory modeling products for several years. Working with HP in this broader scope underscores our commitment to delivering the highest quality solutions for memory system design and verification."
