Nanno SOLUTIONS, a DFM Startup Specializing in Realistic, Statistically Based, Worstcase Interconnect Models, Expands to New Market; Announces Support for Windows-Based Designers

Windows Support Adds to Unix and Sun Workstation Platform Support

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Nanno SOLUTIONS, an EDA (Electronic Design Automation) company in the DFM/DFY (Design for Manufacturing/Yield) market, today announced that its software products, Nanno-WiN and Nanno-CaL, now interface to Windows-based design environment from MyCAD as well as run on workstations running Unix or Sun OS.

As the performance of PCs improves and the number of PC-based designers increases, Nanno SOLUTIONS is meeting the demand by adding support for PC-based designers and improving their design manufacturability and yield with realistic, statistically based, worstcase interconnect models/DB for RC-Delay, Crosstalk and IR-Drop.

"We are selling our tools worldwide and have recently sold 500 copies of our Windows-based software to customers in India," said Young Yu, CEO of MyCAD. "We see great potential for our software in emerging markets like India and China as well as in America, Europe and Japan. Establishing a partnership with Nanno SOLUTIONS is one of the things we are doing to support our worldwide customers."

"Working with MyCAD, a major player in the Windows-based EDA Solutions market, is helping us achieve our goal of reaching out to the full spectrum of the EDA customer base," added Won-Young Jung, CTO of Nanno SOLUTIONS. "It means more EDA users can benefit from using our software to improve their silicon manufacturing with accurate interconnect models/DB."

About Nanno SOLUTIONS Technology and Software

Nanno SOLUTIONS' technology uses process variation data and transforms the information into realistic values that designers understand. Nanno's realistic, statistically based, worstcase interconnect models can be used at both the Front-End-of-Line (FEOL) and the Back-End-of-Line (BEOL) of the design flow to reduce design skew.

Nanno-WiN generates realistic, statistical, interconnect worstcase models. Nanno-CaL calculates interconnect performance and generates RCL netlists in the pre-layout design stage. Designers use these products to characterize interconnects and analyze the circuit statistically.

Nanno-WiN is the most accurate model generator for RC-Delay, Crosstalk and IR-Drop. It is based on Monte-Carlo simulation and Accumulated-Maximum Probability and Effective Common Geometry methods. Nanno-WiN improves worstcase corner accuracy for RC-Delay by about 70% when compared to conventional worstcase methods.

Nanno-CaL works in the pre-layout design stage. It estimates interconnect load and calculates delay and transient time, and estimates RC-Delay, Crosstalk and IR-Drop for critical nets. It speeds up the design cycle by reducing the time for these pre-layout design tasks, and expands the interconnect macro block. Nanno-CaL also provides lumped R, C, L and distributed models for other applications. It interfaces to existing Place & Route and timing analysis software, and circuit simulators for estimation of circuit performance in the pre-layout design stage. It also can be used to optimize transistors and interconnect with circuit simulators like SPICE.
