The Simucad spinoff by Silvaco is the first of its kind for an EDA vendor. It enables each company to focus on its core competency, Silvaco to focus on the TCAD market and Simucad to focus on the analog/mixed-signal/RF market where being a public company is a significant advantage. As a public company, Simucad will have the resources needed to become the #1 EDA supplier of simulation and CAD software tools.
Simucad was spun off from Silvaco in order to continue its rapid growth in providing an integrated platform of software design tools for analog/mixed-signal/RF IC design. A future IPO will provide Simucad with the capital to fund this growth and gain the name recognition benefits of a public company.
Simucad has a large portfolio of EDA software products that specifically address the challenges of the AMS/RF IC design market—multi-level circuit simulation, design for manufacturability, nanometer technology, and delivering integrated PDK-based design platforms. This spinoff will enable Simucad to better focus on developing and delivering solutions to these challenges.
