Plano-based Siemens Digital Industries Software has completed its acquisition of Insight EDA Inc., an EDA software company that delivers groundbreaking circuit reliability solutions to many of the world’s leading integrated circuit (IC) design teams.
According to Siemens, Insight EDA’s technology identifies and helps address design specific potential circuit reliability failure areas, bolstering the confidence of design engineers in achieving first-pass silicon success.
“The acquisition of Insight EDA accelerates our circuit reliability verification roadmap and underscores Siemens’ continued commitment to delivering world-class EDA solutions,” Michael Garcia-Buehler, vice president, product management, Calibre Design Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software, said in a statement. “The addition of Insight EDA to Siemens’ Calibre PERC product line further enables design engineers to create design specific reliability checks and analysis.”
Terms of the deal that closed on Nov. 1 were not released.
The company said that circuit reliability is a fast-growing market for IC design and Siemens’ Calibre PERC software is a market leader for manufacturing reliability sign-off software delivering new checking functionalities previously unattainable with traditional verification tools.
Insight EDA has been a pioneer in the use of EDA automation to address design specific circuit reliability, bringing in new and more efficient circuit reliability analysis use models to the industry, Siemens said. The addition of the Insight EDA technology to Siemens’ Calibre PERC product portfolio is expected to empower chip designers with an end-to-end circuit reliability solution.
“Joining Siemens is the start of an exciting new chapter for the Insight EDA team and our technologies,” Insight EDA’s CEO Jesse Newcomb said in a statement. “Until this point, we’ve been focused on meeting the needs of a select group of customers, but now as part of Siemens EDA, we look forward to bringing our solutions to the global semiconductor ecosystem.”
Founded in 2008, Insight EDA has served a global customer base with analog/mixed signal and transistor-level custom digital design flows.
Siemens Digital Industries Software helps organizations of all sizes digitally transform using software, hardware, and services from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform.
Its software and the comprehensive digital twin enable companies to optimize their design, engineering, and manufacturing processes to turn today’s ideas into the sustainable products of the future, the company said.
