Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that it has acquired Fractal Technologies, a provider of production signoff-quality IP validation solutions, based in the U.S. and the Netherlands. With this acquisition, Siemens’ electronic design automation (EDA) customers can more quickly and easily validate internal and external IP and libraries used in their integrated circuit (IC) designs to improve overall quality and speed time-to-market. Fractal’s offerings include a comprehensive suite of IP validation and comparison checks used by top-tier foundries, IP providers, integrated device manufacturers, and fabless semiconductor companies to accelerate time-to-tapeout and improve silicon results by enabling design data quality and integrity. Siemens plans to add Fractal’s technology to the Xcelerator portfolio as part of its suite of EDA IC verification offerings. Fractal’s products will join the Solido software product family, including the Solido Characterization Suite, which remains a standard for machine learning acceleration of IP validation and characterization. The machine learning technology within Solido enables variation-aware design and library validation for IP, from mature technologies to the most advanced, leading-edge process nodes.
