EMA Releases TimingDesigner 9.3 with New Documentation Graphics and a Multi-Diagram Interface

Rochester, NY  – EMA Design Automation (, one of the world’s largest Electronic Design Automation Value Added Resellers (VARs), today announced a new release of its static timing analysis tool, TimingDesigner 9.3, making the customization of diagrams and documentation easier and users more productive. “With a fresh, redesigned user interface and improved controls, TimingDesigner 9.3 is the most intuitive timing analysis tool on the market,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “We’ve made several useful additions to diagram and spreadsheet styling, as well as enhancements to the image exporting capabilities. When these new features are combined with our patented timing algorithms, TimingDesigner becomes the most robust tool on the market for timing critical designs.”

Many supporting features have been incorporated into TimingDesigner to make styling and image exporting easier. A WYSIWYG editor has been added so users can quickly take what they see on the screen to create documentation. The screen can be exported as a scalable image file, which is much quicker and easier than taking screen shots of the workspace. A print preview capability has also been added, so users can print directly from the tool. Documentation in version 9.3 is a simple step away from the analysis.

The ability to easily export screen content is only half of the documentation process; version 9.3 also adds many new styling features to the diagram and spreadsheet tools. Users now have multiple options and control mechanisms for defining fonts, colors, fills, line thicknesses, and more. TimingDesigner’s ability to import pre-defined diagram styles has been expanded so that diagram styling can now be imported as style groups which can be applied to the target diagram automatically or on an individual basis. These enhancements make it very easy to adhere to defined corporate standards when generating timing diagrams for documentation.

The modern appearance and intuitive commands in version 9.3 compliment TimingDesigner’s popular interactive timing analysis. With the new multi-diagram interface, users can view and edit multiple diagrams and spreadsheets, much like opening multiple tabs in an internet browser. Information can be easily compared, copied, and pasted between these tabs. Also, many functions have been redesigned to follow more modern and expected processes, making this version of TimingDesigner easier to learn and faster to operate for both new and experienced users.

“TimingDesigner is a complete analysis and documentation solution with high accuracy analysis engines and an extensive online timing model library, making it an excellent value and differentiating it from the competition,” added Marcano.
