Technology Licensing/OEM Opportunities
Three Logic, now a division of Veicon Technology, Inc., was founded
in Oregon, June 1986 as a spin-off from Metheus/Computervision, Inc.
a $10 Million joint venture between Metheus Corporation in
Hillsboro, Oregon and Computervision Corporation in Bedford,
Massachusetts. Since the beginning of the business, Phase Three
Logic has focused its efforts on its advanced, world-class,
hierarchical schematic design and interface tools.
past twelve years, Phase Three Logic has established business
relationships with such leading companies as
- Intergraph Corp.
- Analogy, Inc.
- Intermetrics, Inc.
- Cirrus Logic, Inc
- Computervision Corp.
- ALPS Electric Co.
- Sharp Electronics, Inc.
- Compact Software, Inc (now Ansoft)
These relationships are in addition to its sales of
Phase Three Logic's CapFast products run on PC (Windows) as well as
leading UNIX workstations (Sun, HP). It also supports X Windows to
broaden its uses in a networked environment. In addition to a
flexible hierarchical schematic design package, CapFast includes a
variety of interface tools for PCB, analog and digital simulators,
and VHDL code generation. The extensive symbol library is also part
of the CapFast product.
The Phase Three Logic family of
tools also contains a Programmable Netlist Library (PNL), a high
level "C" language library, used for rapid development of
custom interfaces. The in-house custom developed EDIF 200 tools
although tailored for the Mentor Graphics schematic design
environment, also work with other popular CAE environments. The EDIF
package contains four technologies that support reading and writing
of both netlists and schematics.
It is estimated that Phase Three Logic has invested in excess
of $10 Million for the development of these tools in the past eight
years. This figure excludes the initial investment made by Metheus
and Computervision prior to Phase Three Logic's founding in 1986,
which is well in excess of an additional $6 Million.
Phase Three Logic technologies are available for non-exclusive
licensing to companies interested in CapFast for internal use, or
wishing to use the technologies to enhance their product line. The
core technologies are available at a fraction of the cost of new
development and allow tool designers to focus on adding value rather
than "re-inventing the wheel".
Phase Three Logic's technical staff will be available to answer
technical questions during the initial phase of the technology
transfer to help licensees shorten their learning time.
