Palo Alto, CA--January 27, 1997--Exemplar Logic Inc. (Alameda, CA) announced that Exemplar and Fujitsu LSI Technology Ltd. (Kawasaki, Japan), a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd., have signed a major business and technology agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will pursue an ongoing joint development effort for certification of Fujitsu's ASIC libraries for Exemplar's Leonardo synthesis solution. In addition, Fujitsu plans to offer Exemplar's Windows NT version of Leonardo with certified libraries to customers in Japan.
This agreement is significant because its result is the development of the first commercially available ASIC synthesis solution for Windows NT users. In Japan, Fujitsu is offering certified ASIC synthesis libraries and Exemplar's Leonardo as part of its PROVERD Windows NT design solution. Certified Fujitsu libraries are available for Leonardo to Fujitsu customers worldwide on Windows and Unix platforms.
The certified libraries include support for Fujitsu's channelless gate arrays, the new 0.35m CG61/CE61 series, and the older generation 0.5m CG51/CE51 series.
Fujitsu LSI Technology Ltd. is reselling Exemplar's Leonardo synthesis and timing analysis tools as part of PROVERD-SYN. PROVERD-SYN is part of Fujitsu's Windows-NT PROVERD design environment. This environment includes schematic entry, Verilog-based simulation, synthesis, power analysis, links to back-end systems, and synthesis libraries.
PROVERD with PROVERD-SYN is available now from Fujitsu LSI Technology Ltd. in Japan and in their worldwide design centers. Fujitsu's ASIC libraries are available from both Fujitsu LSI Technology Ltd. and Exemplar Logic. PROVERD-SYN starts at $26,500.
