ATEEDA joins Synopsys in-Sync program
Interoperability between Synopsys’ HSPICE Circuit Simulator and Ateeda’s OptimATE formalized

Interoperability between Synopsys’ HSPICE Circuit Simulator and Ateeda’s OptimATE formalized

Edinburgh, UK — April 30, 2007— ATEEDA, a leading provider of mixed-signal test tools and services, today announced it has joined Synopsys, Inc.’s in-Sync program to develop and support interoperability between ATEEDA’s OptimATE© mixed-signal test tool and Synopsys’ HSPICE® simulator, the gold standard for accurate circuit simulation.

ATEEDA, founded in 2006, specializes in testing mixed signal devices which have both analog and digital sections. The company has developed the world's first effective tool that allows analog sections to be tested on digital testers, enabling manufacturers to save substantial amounts of time and money.

OptimATE is ATEEDA's core EDA product, offering a unique combination of features and benefits, particularly for mixed signal semiconductor manufacturers. Benefits include reduced production test time, reduced test cost, simplified analog test equipment requirements, and improved statistical information about test coverage. Validation of the technology is at an advanced stage with several major integrated device manufacturers (IDM’s).

ATEEDA’s CEO David Hamilton said “I am keenly aware of the need for our product OptimATE every time we see designs from high-volume, mixed-signal IDMs. The reduction in test time achievable on the analog portion using OptimATE and Synopsys’ HSPICE circuit simulator is compelling. Achieving full interoperability with Synopsys’ HSPICE tool through the Synopsys in-Sync program is very important for us.”

'Synopsys has a long history of working with standards bodies and industry organizations to advance tool interoperability,' said Karen Bartleson, director of Interoperability at Synopsys, Inc. 'Through the in-Sync interoperability program, Synopsys enables EDA vendors, including ATEEDA, to identify and implement interoperable design flows that help maximize productivity.'

The company is a world leader in developing semiconductor test solutions. It was founded in 2006 to meet a growing industry need to find an efficient and cost-effective way to test the analog sections of mixed signal integrated circuits. These circuits are used in almost all consumer products and also in other sectors such as the automotive industry. ATEEDA is the first company to develop an effective test solution for the analog section of mixed signal devices that can be run on a digital tester.

ATEEDA's core product, OptimATE©, is currently being validated by several major integrated device manufacturers.
