SiSoft and Denali Software Address DesignCon Audience on Design Challenges with Timing, Signal and Power Integrity

Technology Partnership Focuses on Need for Speed in DDR Memory Systems

Maynard, MA and Palo Alto, CA – February 5, 2008 - Signal Integrity Software, Inc. (SiSoft™) and Denali™ Software, Inc., today announced they will co-present “Counting the Picoseconds: Integrating Timing, Signal, and Power Integrity Analysis”, on Wednesday, February 6, from 2:00PM to 2:40PM at DesignCon 2008 in Santa Clara, CA. This joint presentation focuses on a key challenge in today’s high-speed design industry – the challenge of modeling the effects of timing, power and signal integrity in a truly integrated fashion.

“Increasing design speeds have driven operating margins down into the tens of picoseconds range,” stated Barry Katz, president and CTO of SiSoft. “Combined power/signal integrity analysis is no longer an option – it’s crucial to success.”

“Customers today demand a total solution for DDR memory subsystems, from memory market research to memory controller tuning to a flexible hard PHY to designing and validating IO, package and board designs,” stated Brian Gardner, Denali’s vice president of IP products. “We are pleased to be working with SiSoft, an industry leader in signal integrity design.”

“Only SiSoft’s Quantum-SI™ toolset provides the capability to simultaneously evaluate package and PCB effects with respect to power integrity, crosstalk, topology, termination, and IO drivers, and produce concise signal quality and timing margin reports,” said Barry Katz.

Additionally, SiSoft and Denali experts will both be demonstrating Quantum-SI DDR3 kits with Denali controllers, during the exhibition on the show floor (booth #106 and booth #322). Exhibition hours are from 12:30PM to 6:30PM on both Tuesday and Wednesday, February 5-6.
