SpringSoft.com produces Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software


SpringSoft specializes in unique electronic design automation (EDA) solutions that address key pain points in the development of sophisticated chips and systems. Their products help engineers produce better results in less time as they design, verify, and debug today's complex digital, analog, and mixed-signal ICs, ASICs, microprocessors, and SoCs. They are supported by a worldwide team of local experts who deliver the highest quality service with unmatched responsiveness.
SpringSoft's founding team created two uniquely powerful EDA products: the Debussy® Debug System and the LakerTM IC Layout System. Although these two products address distinct applications, they share a common core characteristic: they automate tedious, time-consuming tasks to accelerate engineers through tough spots in the chip design and verification flow so they can focus on value-adding activities.

With the Verdi system, we are able to implement a much more effective, automated debug methodology for finding problems faster and earlier in the development cycle.

- Shigenori Imazato, Vice President of Engineering, TAECs SoC Design Centers

Siloti was pretty amazing. We could dump out gate-level simulations at a very high speed. We used it for full-chip simulations, because it would have been impossible to dump out data for the entire project otherwise. I’m not sure what we would have done without Siloti

- Chan Lee, Vice President of VLSI, Ambarella

With Certitude, we are able to determine very quickly whether there are critical weaknesses, and then build a more robust verification environment to ensure the design quality Sunplus customers expect.

- Dr. Siuleong Yu, R&D VP, Sunplus Technology Co.

We were impressed by the performance of Laker's database. Moreover, MCell provides a much faster and more flexible way for device creation and modification that dramatically increase the yield of our custom layout projects. - Fred Wang, Senior Director, TSMC
