SAN FRANCISCO French EDA startup EdXact plans to introduce two versions of its standalone netlist reduction tool, Jivaro, at next month's Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Anaheim, Calif.
EdXact (Grenoble, France) said it would demonstrate Jivaro-A for analog and RF circuits and Jivaro-D for digital and mixed-signal circuits. EdXact said the tools are the first netlist reduction tools that can accurately handle coupled capacitors, inductors and even mutual inductors. Both tools complement all major EDA vendors' tools, the company said, plugging into existing flows through transparent interfaces based on Spice, Spectre, DSPF and SPEF file formats.
Earlier this month, EdXact announced it received 2 million euro (about $2.55 million) in first round financing and added former STMicroelectronics Executive Vice President Andre Belmont to its supervisory board.
