SAN JOSE, CA, November 20th, 2014 — Helic Inc., proudly announces a multi-year collaboration with Solarflare Communications, Inc. the leading provider of application-intelligent networking I/O software and hardware in high-performance, low-latency 10/40GbE server networking solutions.
Following a thorough and successful evaluation, Solarflare will enhance its design flow with the addition of Helic’s VeloceRF® passive device compiler, and Raptor/X™, industry’s highest capacity EM analysis and extraction engine.
“Speed and precision are the most important factors for our next generation 40GbE applications. We believe that Helic’s EDA software tools will help us reduce our design cycle times and optimize our layout floorplans because they give us the benefit of rapid, accurate EM analysis that enables multiple design iterations, leading to faster decision making and design closure”, commented Raed Moughabghab, Vice President of VLSI Engineering at Solarflare.
“The collaboration with Solarflare, the leader in server applications for electronic trading, high performance computing and big data, is an important milestone for Helic - proving yet again the value of our high-capacity, fast EM extraction technology in high-speed SOC designs”, said Nikolas Provatas Helic’s Vice President of Sales.
“The dramatic increase of signal speeds over the past few years has brought “RF problems” to digital design architectures. The key obstacle preventing traditional EM modelling engines from analyzing these complex designs is their capacity. Helic’s proprietary and patented EM algorithms have been designed to attack this very problem. Using basic EM theory in a novel, smart way, Helic’s EM engine produces extremely accurate EM models but has unprecedented capacity allowing it to process layouts with complexity that is orders of magnitude higher than can be processed by other EM software.”
