"The Nethra SoC is the first production chip to use SpectaReg.com 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, SpectaReg.com 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."
"SpectaReg.com 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 SpectaReg.com 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."
