Cadence acquires EDA firm

In a move to extend its silicon realisation offering for advanced node SoC design enablement, Cadence Design Systems has acquired EDA company Altos Design Automation. The firm's design tools enable characterisation of memory, standard cell libraries and other foundation IP.

Cadence described the deal as another step towards delivering on its EDA360 vision. According to Cadence, the deal will help its customers achieve visibility into the effects of noise, timing and power at every phase of the design cycle - including foundation IP design creation, extraction, SPICE simulation, and implementation.

"Foundation IP characterisation is becoming mission critical at advanced nodes due to shrinking time to market windows, escalating low power, high speed design complexities and variations in advanced processes," said Dr Chi-Ping Hsu, senior vice president, R&D, Silicon Realisation Group at Cadence. "By extending our Silicon Realisation tool offering to include technically superior solutions that automate vital phases of the design process, we deliver the end to end approach that is required to ensure our customers' success."
