HARDI Announces First Silicon Success for C2 Microsystems; Achieves First Pass Success with One Tape-Out and One Mask Set

MISSION VIEJO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 23, 2006— HARDI Electronics, the world wide leader in rapid ASIC prototyping platforms, announced today that C2 Microsystems has achieved first pass silicon success with one tape-out and one mask set using HARDI's ASIC Prototyping System (HAPS).

C2 Microsystems used HAPS to prototype its CC1000 Media Processor, a complex SOC targeted at low cost, high performance audio/video applications. The CC1000 has approximately 4 million ASIC gates as well as multiple memory agents on multiple clock domains that made verification a challenge.

"C2 Microsystems' verification experience is another testimony to the benefits of HAPS for start-up companies," commented Lars-Eric Lundgren, HARDI CEO. "The biggest challenge to start-ups is to prove themselves by getting it right the first time. Not only did HAPS allow C2 Microsystems to achieve first pass silicon with one tape-out and one mask set, but it also allowed them to show a working prototype to potential investors and early customers, long before there was any ASIC."

About HAPS

HARDI ASIC Prototyping System (HAPS) is the first modular FPGA board system providing high speed, high capacity, real-time debugging and full ASIC functionality for ASIC prototyping designers. The system is composed of single- or multi-FPGA motherboards and standard or user developed daughter boards. To accommodate very large designs, designers can connect a number of motherboards in many different ways. HAPS gives designers virtually the same functionality as the ASIC.
