Backend verification specialist edXact SA announced that it has signed distribution agreements with EDA Sales, Inc. in California and WIN Technology in Korea. This will strengthen the company’s expansion into key regions for the semiconductor industry.
EDA Sales, Inc. was founded in 2005 in San Jose, California by Barry Lazow to represent EDA companies providing point tools and technologies that address some of the most critical design challenges, from ESL SoC design through device testing technologies.
Early in 2005, founded by MG Cheon who worked for over 20 years in this EDA market and previously spent about 10 years with Samsung, WIN Technology will be responsible for support, marketing and sales of edXact’s parasitic data management & analysis tools on the Korean market. WIN Technology provides the Best-in-class EDA tools including ESL and DFM for SOC as well as DRAM and Flash Memory designs from Front-end through Back-end design flows.
edXact (Voiron, France) provides innovating software tools that help semiconductor designers to remove the backend verification bottleneck, while maintaining their existing design flow and achieving tape-out accuracy. JIVARO’ unique netlist reduction technology applies user-controllable model order reduction techniques upon parasitic data files, which dramatically accelerates simulation times. COMANCHE is a tool that enables quick interconnection analysis, without the need to run extensive simulations.
“We are pleased to extend our international distribution network,” said Mathias Silvant, edXact President. “Our new partners bring us a deep knowledge of the US and Korean markets, two strategic regions for our business, and are already effectively complementing Marubeni Solution’s action in Japan.”
Founded in 2004, edXact SA focuses on electronic design tools aimed at physical verification tasks. edXact’s innovative model order reduction technology helps accelerate extensive backend verifications in complex IC design cycles. edXact’s headquarters are based in Grenoble area, France.
