Silvaco Completes Acquisition of NanGate

Further strengthens its commitment to becoming a major EDA powerhouse

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 5, 2018 — Silvaco today announced that it has acquired NanGate, a leader in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software, that offers tools and services for creation, optimization, characterization and validation of physical library IP.

NanGate’s Library Creation Platform has been deployed by a large number of semiconductor companies creating standard cell libraries used in hundreds of SoC designs and have shipped in billions of units. NanGate’s technology is available and proven in a broad range of standard logic CMOS processes from 250-nm down to 14-nm nodes, available from multiple foundries. The acquisition extends Silvaco’s tools portfolio, complements Silvaco’s IC design flow and strengthens the methodology to achieve high performance, high yield standard cell libraries that meet today’s high-sigma requirements.

“We are happy for the NanGate team with their ability to deliver excellent solutions for library creation to top-tier Semiconductor companies,” said Dave Dutton, CEO of Silvaco. “Together with our leadership in variation aware design methodology with VarManTM, SmartSpiceTM, and our complete custom design flow including extraction, we are now able to deliver a complete solution for high performance standard cell libraries creation.”

“The synergy between Silvaco’s growth strategy and NanGates technology plus the combination of our talented teams will accelerate the delivery of tools and methodologies for a highly productive standard cell library and characterization flow,” said Ole Christian Andersen, President and CEO of NanGate. “We are excited to join Silvaco to further our original vision."

Silvaco’s aggressive growth plan is designed to grow revenue by adding strategic technologies to offer the best solutions to our customers. This acquisition was led by Ron Sorisho and is the sixth acquisition for Silvaco’s business development team.
