CAMPBELL, Calif., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Altos Design Automation Inc. today announced it has been selected by Texas Instruments (TI) to receive their Supplier Excellence Award (SEA) for 2010. Altos was chosen based on its key contributions made to TI's library IP (intellectual property) characterization flow for standard cells and memories. Altos is one of sixteen companies to receive the 2010 award from over 12,000 TI suppliers.
Altos teamed with TI on migrating from an internal characterization tool flow to Altos' products, Liberate, Variety and Liberate MX. This migration enabled TI to target IP to both internal and external foundries and to enable the mixing of both commercial and internally developed IP. Altos and TI also co-developed production flows for memory characterization including SRAM and TCAM compilers.
"TI chose Altos for the SEA award for their superior responsiveness and quality of sales, products, and support that have contributed to TI's success," said Buddy Williams, manager of Design Technology Procurement at TI. "Altos worked together with TI on standard cell and memory IP, developed three-way partnerships with TI and our IP providers, and provided high quality local and corporate support."
"Altos is very honored to have been selected for this award by TI," said Jim McCanny, Altos CEO. "Working with leading edge semiconductor suppliers like TI has enabled us to continuously improve our products and to optimize them for use in production compute environments. I would like to personally thank our R&D and Applications teams whose diligence and focus have enabled us to receive this prestigious award."
Altos Design Automation provides ultra-fast, fully-automated characterization technology for the creation of library views for timing, signal integrity and power analysis and optimization. Altos advanced modeling solutions are used by both corner-based and statistical-based design implementation flows to reduce time to market and improve yield.
