TimingDesigner is the interactive timing analysis tool designers trust to deliver fast and accurate results for timing critical designs such as high-speed, multi-frequency designs.

TimingDesigner uses an intuitive timing diagram approach for developing specifications to drive the design process, analyzing timing to answer critical design questions, and documenting results to clearly illustrate and communicate the design implementation. TimingDesigner is ideal for high-speed, multi-frequency designs. In these designs it is essential to accurately model and analyze signal relationships between devices on a board or between embedded functions on an ASIC or programmable IC. TimingDesigner can evaluate comprehensive sets of timing alternatives and provide direction to the most complex of timing challenges, enabling designers to manage and monitor timing margins through the design process.

  • Easy-to-use timing diagram editor enables rapid specification of design requirements
  • Dynamically linked timing spreadsheet for accurate modeling of complex delay and constraint effects
  • Powerful timing analysis engine quickly identifies worst-case timing margins 
  • Instant updates of intelligent timing diagrams support quick evaluation of design alternatives
  • Robust project manager 
  • Extensive import/export support

GSI Technology:

"GSI Technology is proud to provide our customers with TimingDesigner® models for our SigmaQuad family of SRAM products."

- David Chapman, GSI Technology, Inc.
  Vice president of Marketing and Applications Engineering at GSI

"Altera works closely with the EMA development team to enable a tight, seamless interface between our Quartus II software and TimingDesigner. As a result of this effort, customers can leverage the graphical timing analysis features of TimingDesigner to rapidly develop their SDC timing constraints for Altera devices."
- Chris Balough, Altera Corporation
  Senior Director of Software

Fujitsu Telecommunications
"The new TimingDesigner interface with Cadence Allegro PCB SI allows me to accomplish in 20 minutes what used to take 3 days. Because of this, I have my entire team using TimingDesigner."

- Bryn Holmes,
  Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd.
  Principal Design Engineer - Hardware Engineering

Simtek Corporation:
"After realizing the value that is gained by using TimingDesigner in our own internal development environment, it was a natural progression to see the benefits Simtek customers can realize with TimingDesigner and interactive timing models of our devices." 

- Grant Hulse, Simtek Corporation
  Vice President of Worldwide Marketing

Cadence Design Systems
“Merging simulator-derived interconnect delay data into timing tools has previously been a manual and error-prone operation.  With this integrated environment [between TimingDesigner and Cadence Allegro PCB SI], engineers can now combine the accuracy of simulation with an interactive, comprehensive timing diagram solution to quickly determine if today’s shrinking timing margins are in spec.”

- Brad Girffin Cadence Design Systems
  Product Marketing Director
