One of the new exhibitors for DAC this year has been snapped up before the show begins. That is the news today coming from Methodics who have just acquired Missing Link Tools. Missing Link had developed tools for managing design data. EVOLVE provides an Agile framework for build, test, and regressions, using a central database. This enables teams to recreate failures, triage large regressions, and swap design workspaces. The semiconductor-specific continuous integration release server also enables cross-geography collaboration. With cross-vendor coverage support and collection, EVOLVE offers a way to report and manage coverage across testbenches, across time and across design snapshots.
As far as Methodics is concerned, the resulting combination offers a complete solution for the task of managing analog and digital IP and assembling SoC designs. Terms of the acquisition were not announced. Missing Link Tools’ founders will join Methodics effective immediately.Brian Bailey
