How big a company is Sequence Design?

People or dollars?

Both?

People, about 75 direct employees. We have ~7 additional consultants or distributors who help us sell and support the product. 82 or 83 people in the world associated with Sequence. Since we are a private company I won't give you an exact number. You can say that we have between $14 and $16 million in bookings.


We have covered a wide range of topics. Is there anything else you think my readers would be interested in?

Something that I have learned and that is pretty unique in our company is what I call fusion of various engineering disciplines to create these kinds of products. The one nice thing for all of us in the industry is that the technology drivers have been set by the ITS roadmap. But when you combine electrical engineering, computer science and solid state physics you can create very innovative solutions to meet the next generation challenges of the designers going toward 90nm and 65 nm. That is the exciting part to me.
Innovation is really the most critical part of the company's success in the future. We need to continue to do that. Today we have 19 patents already granted. We have an additional 10 or so in various stages of application. I would recommend that anyone starting a new company to think about that not just about one small flash in the pan sort of thing but really solve the difficult problems that designers are facing.


Sequence Design, Inc.

Sequence Design, Inc. ("Sequence") was formed in June 2000 by the merger of Frequency Technology and Sente, Inc. In January of 2001, Sequence merged with Sapphire Design Automation. The firm enables system-on-chip designers to bring higher-performance and power-aware nanometer integrated circuits quickly to fabrication. Sequence's power and signal-integrity software give its more than 125 customers the competitive advantage necessary
to excel in aggressive technology markets, despite demanding complexity and time-to-market issues of nanometer design.
