Growing semiconductor EDA company Silvaco acquired physical verification solution and cloud enablement provider POLYTEDA CLOUD LLC.
“IC designers are looking for design-rule-check/layout-versus-schematic (DRC/LVS) tools that provide quick run-times, compatibility with their current design flow, and can take advantage of server farms to divide-and-conquer the largest verification tasks,” said Thomas Blaesi, vice president and general manager, EDA Division at Silvaco. “The POLYTEDA technology provides all of this and more. We look forward to bringing this versatile physical verification solution to design teams worldwide.”

“POLYTEDA is a success story for the Ukraine high technology community,” said Evgeni Utkin, Chairman of the board at POLYTEDA. “Their hard work and technical vision will now be enjoyed by a much wider audience through this acquisition by Silvaco. I see great success for this innovative IC physical verification solution and future cloud enablement.”
“With the addition of this industry standard physical verification software, we address the needs of customers looking for a scalable, world-class DRC/LVS solution for analog/mixed-signal and digital designs, “said Babak Taheri, Silvaco CEO. “This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to address our customer’s critical needs, bring high-value design solutions to the marketplace, and expand into cloud solutions as customers require it.”
