Nascentric Closes $7.2M Investment Round with Intel Capital and Austin Ventures

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 12, 2007— Nascentric, Inc. an Electronic Design Automation (EDA) company focused on providing innovative Fast-SPICE simulation and analysis tools, announced today that it has closed a $7.2 million Series C financing, including new investor Intel Capital. Existing investors Austin Ventures, Silverton Partners, Needham Capital and EDA veteran Jim Solomon also participated.

"Nascentric has developed a novel technology to meet the growing challenges of sub-65 nanometer process node design verification," said Sean Doyle, director at Intel Capital. "We believe Nascentric will continue to make noteworthy contributions to next generation design verification methodology."

As feature sizes in integrated circuits (ICs) continue to shrink, parasitic capacitances and leakage currents have come to dominate the design and verification process. The Nascentric solution, AuSIM MT, is based on several technology innovations including current-based SPICE simulation models and multi-threaded simulation capabilities to deliver unmatched speed, capacity and accuracy for design verification.

"This funding round will enable us to expand our product capabilities as well as expand our worldwide sales and support capability," said Rahm Shastry, president and CEO of Nascentric. "We are encouraged that Intel Capital chose to invest in us after an evaluation of our technology and team."
