ICScape got $28M funding, exhibits for first time at DAC
May 25th, 2012 by Ed Lee
Named by industry observers as “the biggest EDA company you’ve never heard of” and “a rare and endangered species” of EDA companies, ICScape will bolt out of stealth mode to exhibit at DAC for the first time.
Founded in 2005 by Steve Yang and Jason Xing, the company’s been busy over the last year. How? Merging with analog EDA vendor Huada Empyrean Software (HES), getting that US$28M infusion to fund global R&D, customer support and sales expansion, and working on OpenAccess-based product lines that we’ll probably see in some integrated form toward the end of 2012.
ICScape’s booth will greet attendees right at the entrance to the exhibit floor, in Booth 1602. The company’s executives will be there to:
1) talk about its technology,
2) introduce current customers (a major silicon valley Fabless IC company and a major Silicon Valley analog device company) who will also be available at the booth to share firsthand experience,…..and
3) ensure that ICScape will be one of the EDA names that all of you will have heard of.
See you at DAC!
