Last week I was elected as the first chairman of the board for the Danish EDA company Nangate A/S (Inc.).
Nangate develops and markets Electronic Design Automation tools and intellectual property that allow customers to take full advantage of current and next-generation IC technologies. The Nangate tool suite constitutes a revolutionary new class of EDA solutions that increases the efficiency of digital CMOS ICs to levels previously only achievable with extensive manual efforts and very large design teams. Targeting the inherent shortcomings of predefined 'one-size-fits-all' standard cell libraries, Nangate provides a range of library optimization tools and solutions that can effectively optimize power consumption and maximize performance while minimizing chip area. By utilizing Nangate software customers benefit in multiple areas including lower power consumption, reduced manufacturing costs, higher performance and shorter time to market.
