Siemens Digital Industries Software has completed the acquisition of Insight EDA, a specialist in circuit-reliability analysis.
Operating since 2008, Insight EDA has provided its technology mainly to users working with custom-digital and mixed-signal flows to help them identify and address circuit designs that are at risk of leading to reliability failures in the field. The tools will be folded into Siemens’ Calibre PERC portfolio. Siemens said it expects the expansion of the portfolio to deliver an end-to-end circuit reliability solution.
“The acquisition of Insight EDA accelerates our circuit reliability verification roadmap and underscores Siemens’ continued commitment to delivering world-class EDA solutions” said Michael Garcia-Buehler, vice president of product management in the Calibre design solutions group at Siemens. “The addition of Insight EDA to Siemens’ Calibre PERC product line further enables design engineers to create design specific reliability checks and analysis.”
Insight CEO Jesse Newcomb added, “Until this point, we’ve been focused on meeting the needs of a select group of customers, but now as part of Siemens EDA, we look forward to bringing our solutions to the global semiconductor ecosystem.”
