The eleven companies on the left all have one thing in common: they participate in the Si2 Electronic
Component Information Exchange (ECIX) program. The goal of the program is to develop a standard for
the creation, exchange, and use of component data in electronic form. The resulting standard will allow
a seamless flow of component information from semiconductor suppliers to end customers.
This is great news for both information suppliers and end-users, stated Jeff Barton, manager
of the ECIX Pilot Program and Texas Instruments representative to the ECIX project. Each of the
ECIX project members uses waveform tools and now we'll be able to include interactive electronic versions
of timing diagrams when we deliver our product information electronically. This is much more useful
to end-users and designers who incorporate our parts into their products.
Dan Notestein, president of SynaptiCAD, agrees: This standard vastly simplifies the process of
obtaining and analyzing component timing diagram information. Suppose a designer is viewing a component
data sheet on a vendor's web page. By simply double clicking on the timing information he automatically
launches WaveFormer Pro with his selection. He now has WaveFormer's full functionality to analyze the
new component and integrate it into the rest of his design. Professional versions of WaveFormer can
generate HDL models and stimulus vectors for VHDL, Verilog, SPICE and gate level simulators. Read the TDML article featured in ECN Magazine
