In addition, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS design services for 3D packaging and services for the automotive electronic product development is now available to North American IC designers, system architects, quality and reliability engineers who are responsible for the solution of complex design problems. The Fraunhofer institute will provide first line technical support and EDATechForce will make the following list of Fraunhofer products and services available to customers:

System Level Design Services
Comprehensive support for all aspects of heterogeneous system design including concept engineering, custom model development, simulation and verification combined with extensive knowledge of VHDL and Verilog (including AMS extensions), SystemC and SystemC AMS

Degradation Analysis
Mastery of effects such as process variations or aging occurring in modern chip structures in micro-technology and nanotechnology

Software tool for the quick analysis of mixed signal designs in order to have the complete control of a design’s thermal conditions

Intelligent IP – IIP
An exciting new analog IP generator which has been used internally at Fraunhofer for many years and is now going to be made available to North American customers.

System Integration with Interposers
Design services and optimization support for various advanced packaging technologies from system-in-package (SIP) to 3D integration

Wireless Communication in Critical Environments
Analysis of radio wave propagation and optimization of wireless node locations for applications like clean rooms and process chambers

Optical Sensor Systems
Optical sensor systems for electronic image acquisition and processing by means of laser-light sheet measurements
“As one of Europe’s leading applied research institutions in the field of design automation, we are looking back on more than 20 years of successful cooperation with the semiconductor industry. The next logical step is to offer our advanced solutions not only to European enterprises but also in the main EDA market – North America,” points out Dr. Peter Schneider, division director of Fraunhofer IIS/EAS. “We are convinced that the agreement with our highly experienced new partner EDATechForce is the ideal way to allow our American customers to profit from our solutions and expertise.”

“We have spent years searching for new technologies and an extraordinarily experienced partner like Fraunhofer IIS/EAS. Fraunhofer IIS/EAS will help us meet the demands of our growing list of North American advanced chip and system design customers,” says EDATechForce President and CEO, Carl DeSalvo. “With years of hands-on design experience, a robust suite of new in-demand design tools and IP, the EAS division is the ‘best of the best’ – the ideal partner to help our customers bring even their most complex designs to market quickly –  with the highest levels of reliability.”

Together Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and EDATechForce will present a selection of these products during the 53rd Design Automation Conference taking place in Austin from June 6 to 8, 2016.

About Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Division Engineering of Adaptive Systems EAS

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is one of Germany’s most important research facilities for the development of microelectronic systems. The scientists in the Division Engineering of Adaptive Systems EAS in Dresden develop methods and tools to reliably design increasingly complex electronic and mechatronic systems. This optimizes and accelerates implementation of product requirements in circuitry, devices or complex sensor systems. The division also focuses on innovative in-house developments. The results of the work are used in a broad range of application areas e.g., in communication, automotive and automation technology.

Space Codesign® Systems Signs a Sales Representation Agreement with EDATechForce

A newly signed agreement with EDATechForce opens up new markets and distribution channels for Space Codesign®’s SpaceStudio, an innovative end-to-end HW/SW co-design toolset

Montreal, Qc–May 7, 2012 –Space Codesign Systems, Inc., a leader in Hardware Software co-design technology, announced today an agreement with EDA TechForce to expand its sales and support presence in the US, primarily focusing on the western states.

Under the agreement, EDATechForce will add the SpaceStudio tool suite to its portfolio of products. This would enable EDATechForce to extend their line of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) products, assisting semiconductor companies solve complex design problems and bringing chips to market faster.

"We are pleased to team up with EDATechForce to augment our sales efforts in the US market," said Guy Bois, President of Space Codesign Systems . "With their proven track record for creating new sales opportunities, we believe that EDATechForce would be our perfect sales partner." Space Codesign Systems will expand its presence leveraging EDATechForce’s long-standing client relationships with many major regional and national players. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the EDATechForce team has the technical background and the design knowledge to convey the value of Space Codesign’s products.

"Our agreement with Space Codesign adds essential products to our offering and further strengthens our ability to help leading semiconductor companies realize their complex design goals," said Carl DeSalvo, President and CEO of EDATechForce. "SpaceStudio is the only tool that allows embedded system designers to perform true hardware-software co-design by dragging and dropping a C function into either HW or SW implementation modules. This would result in faster design exploration, validation and performance analysis, without the need to change any of their application code.”

SpaceStudio end-to-end automation reduces the time required to perform system on a chip (SoC) design implementation in FPGA or in ASIC; it lowers development cycle time and costs, and creates better code for embedded systems. For further information about SpaceStudio suite, please do not hesitate to contact EDATechForce or Space Codesign Systems.

About Space Codesign Systems:

Founded in 2008, Space Codesign® Systems, Inc. is the developer of SpaceStudio™, the only ESL (Electronic System Level) design technology that enables end-to-end automated hardware/software co-design – from high-level functional specification to the architectural and RTL(Registered Transfer Level) coding phase. Revolutionizing HW/SW partitioning with a drag & drop approach, SpaceStudio allows system architects to move components from hardware to software and vise versa with the click of a mouse. There is no more need to recode functions for hardware or software, no need to change memory mapping, and no need to use predefined hardware.

This pioneering HW/SW co-design technology integrates smoothly with other EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tools and enables electronics engineers to enjoy a higher level of abstraction and executable representation for embedded systems design in aerospace and commercial multimedia applications.
