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. 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. The
addition of the Insight EDA technology to Siemens' Calibre PERC product
portfolio is anticipated to empower chip designers with an end-to-end circuit
"The acquisition of Insight EDA accelerates
our circuit reliability verification roadmap and underscores Siemens’ continued
commitment to delivering world-class EDA solutions" said Michael
Garcia-Buehler, vice president, product management, Calibre Design Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software.
"The addition of Insight EDA to Siemens’ Calibre PERC product line further
enables design engineers to create design specific reliability checks and analysis."
Insight EDA was formed in 2008, and since
that time has served a worldwide customer base with analog / mixed signal and
transistor level custom digital design flows. Terms of the transaction, which closed
on November 1, 2023, were not disclosed.
