FishTail Design Automation Joins Cadence Connections Program

New Flow for Verification of Merged-Mode Constraints in Encounter Timing System

Portland, Oregon, May 8, 2013 -- FishTail Design Automation, Inc. today announced that it has joined the Cadence Design Systems (NASDAQ: CDNS) Connections® program. Through its membership in the Connections program, FishTail has developed a flow that allows engineers to use Cadence® Encounter® Timing System to verify the quality of manual or automatically generated merged-mode constraints relative to multi-mode signoff constraints.

The Connections program promotes interoperability among Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. As a Connections member, FishTail Design Automation has access to Cadence software and support to ensure interoperability between its constraint generation, verification and management products and the Encounter design implementation and timing signoff platforms. FishTail has used its membership in Connections to put in place an automated flow for the verification of merged-mode constraints in Encounter Timing System (ETS).

“We are pleased to welcome FishTail Design Automation to the Connections program,” said Pat Dutrow, senior marketing manager, Connections program at Cadence. “We look forward to working with the FishTail team to enhance the interoperability of our products for the benefit of our mutual customers.”

“FishTail’s constraint management solution is used by leading semiconductor firms worldwide,” stated Ajay Daga, founder and CEO of FishTail. “Our membership in the Connections program will allow these customers to use ETS to verify the quality of merged-mode constraints, identify if timing exceptions apply to timing-critical paths on a design, etc. We expect our integration with ETS to add significant value to our customers.”
