In a related move, Detjens has restructured Circuit Semantics to grow the business, increase revenue, expand the customer base and extend its product offerings. Jose Torres has become Circuit Semantics' vice president of marketing.
"Circuit Semantics has plenty going for it and its future is bright," says Detjens. "It has great technology, a strong customer base and, with a healthy second round of funding, the means to get to the next level. Circuit Semantics has the know how to make a significant contribution to help create the highest performance and most power-efficient ICs that use nanometer technology. I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead the team in this effort."
Detjens, a resident of San Francisco, founded Exemplar Logic in 1987. Mentor Graphics acquired Exemplar Logic in 1995, where he remained through 1997. Detjens became a private seed investor in various software companies until January 2002, when he became interim CEO of Bridges2Silicon. Previously, Detjens worked for Philips Research Labs and STC Computer Research.
A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, Detjens holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science and a Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering.
About Circuit Semantics
Circuit Semantics Inc. provides timing and characterization
solutions for high-performance cells, cores, and blocks based on
innovative, patent-pending technology. IC designers employ these
mixed-level solutions to create high-performance chips using
full-custom and structured-custom methodologies. Its products support
precise, gate-level abstraction of transistor-level circuits to
accelerate timing closure for designs fabricated in deep submicron
(DSM) process technologies. These solutions are especially well suited
for the microprocessor, digital signal processing (DSP), graphics and
the high-speed communications markets. Circuit Semantics is
headquartered at 2590 North First Street, Suite 301, San Jose, Calif.
