Nethra Imaging Adopts PDTi's SaaS Tool for New Multi-Core SoC

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 01, 2009 -- PDTi, an innovative provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) electronic design automation products, today announced that, the industry's first true SaaS hardware/software electronic design automation (EDA) tool, has been successfully adopted by Nethra Imaging, a leading imaging and video solutions company, for the design of their latest multi-core SoC.

"The Nethra SoC is the first production chip to use from design start to end and proves our value as a highly effective and reliable tool that will significantly cut development costs and time," said Jeremy Ralph, President of PDTi. "In today's economy, offers the ideal cost structure, particularly for small and medium size companies needing to reduce cost, allowing resources to be focused on differentiating core competencies."

" can be depended upon to produce consistent, error-free register IP and documentation from a single source even with close to two thousand registers and collaboration between many designers," said Krishnan Iyer, VP of Engineering. "Selecting was both a business and technical decision. It was easy to implement it into the SoC design flow and we expect to reap more savings and benefits from it in future designs."

SpectaReg, from PDTi, is an essential web-based register automation tool for software/hardware interface design. SpectaReg's web-browser GUI simplifies engineering workflows cutting development time and costs. Specifications are easily read into the tool and matching hardware logic, hardware verification, firmware, documentation and more are all rapidly auto-generated from a single source. Unlike traditional in-house solutions and competing offerings, SpectaReg is a collaborative web application that easily scales across teams and locations. is the industry's first true SaaS register automation tool available online today for evaluation and production.
