LogicVision Inc. has announced that Agere Systems used LogicVision ETCreate solutions to provide high coverage of performance related defects for Agere's recently announced Gigabit Ethernet platform chips called ET3K and ET4K.

LogicVision's solution also enabled Agere to speed time-to-market by eliminating functional patterns and the related pattern and timing debug stage on the tester between design and production. Using LogicVision's technology, Agere was also able to quickly ramp its chips to production with a very complex design and still achieve manufacturing fault coverage.

Agere intends to continue to take advantage of the embedded test and diagnostic capabilities that allow LogicVision customers to provide high test quality and improve return-on-investment for nanometer-scale SoC designs.

According to Agere, the Gigabit Ethernet economically managed switch (EMS) solution accelerates the convergence of voice, data and video services onto a single network infrastructure at double the port (channel) density and speed of any competing single-chip offerings. Agere's system-on-a-chip creates an EMS Ethernet solution that delivers the required intelligence for multimedia convergence at a fraction of the cost of fully-featured and fully-managed switches.
