This is the first of a series of blogs preparing you for DAC this year. This one lists the new companies exhibiting for the first time...
Aspera develops software transfer technologies to achieve performance and cost savings using existing network infrastructure. They also provide engineering services to implement their products and transfer technology in small to large business enterprises. I expect them to be showing how they can help multinational engineering teams to share design data and keep track of all it in a globally distributed environment.
ChipStart is an IP developer focusing on solutions such as SoC System Manager (SSM); custom embedded Memory products; and Voltage Regulators. They are also an IP Aggregator. They have IP partners working with them to create a larger potential for pre-integrated IP.
DXCorr Designs is focused on providing embedded solutions for foundation IP, memory compiler, RTL2GDS2 full-service flow, custom EDA and CAD services. They are also involved the development of EDA tools in the space of dynamic analysis of electromigration and IR drop issues for large power devices, schematic and layout PCell development, custom PDK development etc.
EnSilica is an established company with many years' experience providing design services. EnSilica can support designs across a wide range of applications, but they have specialist design knowledge in communications and multimedia applied to market segments including consumer, wireless, security, and automotive. They have experience with embedded processors in both FPGA and ASIC technologies and the integration of high-speed interfaces.
Enterprise Ireland are here to persuade you that you should start your next business or engineering center in Ireland.
Esencia Technologies is a design services company working in the areas of video encoding, decoding and analytics, digital signal processing, wireless communications, microprocessors, memory subsystems and peripherals, and security and surveillance. They have some in-house developed tools and IP that they also bring to the table.
Excellicon is tackling problems associated with timing closure of multimillion gates SOC designs. Excellicon software enables designers to compile, manage, verify, analyze, and propagate timing information from start to the end of SOC design cycle.
Flexras Technologies provides timing driven partitioning for SoC rapid prototyping. They also have a tool to create a custom multi FPGA-based solution.
Fractal Technologies helps to check consistency and validate different data formats used in your design and subsequently improve the Quality of your Standard Cell Libraries, IO and IP.
Huada Empyran Software is a Chinese EDA company showing several products including a physical verification debugger, Simulation waveform viewer, Layout comparison, chip finishing and clock tree optimization.
ICScape has tools that accelerate design closure and address analog/mixed signal design. Its tools have already been used successfully for design closure in the storage, wireless, base band, data communications, multimedia, graphics, chipset and power management design markets. The company is financially backed by CEC, China’s largest electronics product design conglomerate.
Integrand Software has tools for high frequency, RF and Mixed Signal integrated circuits. Their EM simulation tool, EMX®, allows designers to accurately and efficiently simulate large RF circuit blocks, characterize the behavior of passive components and analyze the parasitics due to interconnect.
Invarian wants to provide accurate sign-off results. Comprehensive Sign-off should consider power, signal timing, temperature, and die/packaging parameters of integrated circuits. Lack of correlation between simulated and real life behavior of integrated circuits causes tape-out problems.
Jaryba SmartSuspend is a Linux based cluster workload management solution that enables priority based job suspension. Suspension releases system resources including memory, CPU, and floating software licenses making them immediately available for higher priority jobs. SmartSuspend works with any serial or parallel application and without any modification to the underlying operating system.
Jedat is a research and development oriented company that offers EDA software essential for designing semiconductor devices and chips (LSIs) and liquid crystal display (LCD) panels.
Missing Link Tools claims to be the next step in the evolution of EDA tools providing a testing, tracking, and release environment for the design phase of a semiconductor chip.
Netlist is a provider of high density memories for sever blades and storage systems
PRO DESIGN Electronic is a PCB design and production company. They have experience in the areas of electrical engineering, PCB design, mechatronics, production engineering, process engineering, measuring and testing.
Silicon Creations supplies high performance custom analog and mixed signal designs that can be optimized for each individual system. IP includes PLLs, DC to DC converters, Data converters and high speed I/O
Soctronics is a design services company offering Spec-to-Silicon turnkey solutions in logic design, physical design, analog mixed signal design, layout and software engineering.
Space Codesign Systems is a developer of virtual platform technology for embedded systems applications centered on ESL (electronic system level) design technology, hardware/software partitioning and codesign methodology.
Symica is a provider of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit design tools. They are currently providing a free edition of their tools.
Synaptic & Trams. Synaptic targets the optimization of manufacturability and the reduction of systematic variations in nanometer technologies through exploitation of regularity at the architectural, structural, and geometrical levels. TRAMS targets the design of devices models for sub-16nm, bulk-CMOS, CNTFETs, FinFETs, III-V/Ge technologies including variability and aging mechanisms.
SypherMedia International develops turnkey technology products and services addressing today’s security issues. SypherMedia Library (SML) is their camouflage technique applied to standard cell silicon libraries.
Veriest Venture is an IC and EDS design house providing ASIC and FPGA design services, and system engineering services.
