SpringSoft completes eda acquisitions

Asia’s largest eda company SpringSoft has completed its merger with Novas and acquired three additional eda companies. The moves are said by SpringSoft to expand its ability offer specialised solutions for digital, analogue and mixed signal ics, as well as asics, microprocessors and SoCs.

In addition to the merger with Novas, SpringSoft has acquired Fortelink, Nanovata and Silicon Canvas. “We see a tremendous opportunity to create a differentiated eda supplier focused on addressing the tough spots in ic design with specialized technology and world class support,” said Martin Lu, SpringSoft’s chairman and ceo. “The addition of technology components from Fortelink and Nanovata complements our core strengths in verification enhancement and custom IC design. The combination of the Novas, Silicon Canvas and Novaflow sales channels create one of the most capable eda sales and support channels in the world.”
