Poseidon's Triton Tools Selected As DesignVision Award Finalist

ATLANTA, GA, December 9, 2004 Poseidon Design Systems, a provider of innovative Electronic System Level (ESL) solutions for embedded system design, today announced its Triton Tools has been selected as a DesignVision Award finalist. The inaugural DesignVision Award recognizes companies for recent products and services that have added a new dimension to the electronic design industry and to society as a whole. The award ceremony will be held at the DesignCon conference in Santa Clara, Calif. on February 1, 2005. Award winners will be announced at the ceremony.

About Poseidon's Triton Tools
Poseidon offers tools that analyze the performance of an embedded system, including software performance (using performance counters, code profiling, and bottleneck analysis) and hardware performance (checking memory bandwidth, pipeline stalls, and cache mis-hits). It helps designers fine-tune a system architecture for a particular end-use application.

Poseidon's leading-edge tools for platform-based design enable system designers to map an application onto a hardware architecture that may be comprised of multiple processor cores and custom hardware. With these tools, engineers can quickly perform design exploration, hardware/software partitioning, and system optimization to successfully create the electronic devices of the future.

About DesignVision Awards
The first-ever DesignVision Awards will be announced at a ceremony to be held February 1, 2005, during the DesignCon conference in Santa Clara, Calif. The awards mirror a rich International Engineering Consortium (IEC) tradition of recognizing innovative technology in the telecommunications field, another industry in which the IEC actively provides educational opportunities.

Like previous IEC honors, the DesignVision Awards recognize companies for recent products and services that have added a new dimension not only to the electronic design industry, but to society as a whole. Award winning products and services were chosen from among nominees in the following categories:

  • PCB Design Tools
  • ASIC and IC Design Tools
  • Structured / Platform ASIC Design Tools
  • FPGA and PLD Design Tools
  • Semiconductors and ICs
  • Test and Measurement Equipment
  • Interconnect Technologies and Components
  • System-Level Design Tools
  • Design Verification Tools

Entries were judged according to the following criteria:

  • Innovation
  • Uniqueness
  • Market Impact
  • Customer Benefits
  • Value to Society
