With this acquisition, Siemens’ EDA customers can more quickly and easily validate internal and external IP and libraries used in their IC designs to improve overall quality and speed time-to-market.
Fractal’s offerings include a comprehensive suite of IP validation and comparison checks used by top-tier foundries, IP providers, integrated device manufacturers and fabless Semiconductor companies to accelerate time-to-tapeout and improve silicon results by enabling design data quality and integrity.
Siemens plans to add Fractal’s technology to the Xcelerator portfolio as part of its industry-leading suite of EDA IC verification offerings.
Fractal’s products will join the Solido software product family, including the Solido Characterization Suite, which remains the industry standard for machine learning acceleration of IP validation and characterization.
The machine learning technology within Solido enables variation-aware design and library validation for IP, from mature technologies to the most advanced, leading-edge process nodes.
