Samsung Semiconductor has entered an agreement for Denali Software to produce simulation models for Samsung memory devices in Denali’s SOMA format.
The models will be available to engineers to help them perform advanced simulations of the interaction between their product designs and Samsung memory devices.
The agreement expands on an earlier collaboration, which saw the development of SOMA models for Samsung’s 512MB DDR-II-SDRAM devices.
IBM used these SOMA models to validate its design of the first working DDR-II-SDRAM memory system, according to Samsung Semiconductor marketing VP Tom Quinn.
“Samsung will continue to aggressively support tools and technology that enable development of DDR-II-based memory solutions,” Quinn said.
“By participating in Denali’s Memory Vendor program, we are enabling designers to have access to models that speed memory system verification and reduce time-to-market for next-generation memories.”
