Scintera Networks and Helic sign multiyear agreement

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 3, 2011 — Helic Inc., the technology leader in EDA solutions for high-speed IC design and Scintera Networks, Inc., a leading provider of mixed signal semiconductors for wireless communications announce a multiyear partnership, with the integration of Helic’s VeloceRF™ and VeloceRaptor/X™ in Scintera’s RFIC design flow.

VeloceRF™ features a unique component-synthesis engine that generates DRC and DFM-correct inductive devices according to designer specifications. VeloceRF™ brings a complete solution for achieving an optimal floorplan, enabling silicon area reduction by optimizing inductor sizes. The tool de-risks the design from electromagnetic effects, incorporating EM coupling parasitics in post-layout simulation. VeloceRaptor/X™ is a breakthrough RLCK modeling tool with unparalleled capacity and speed suitable for integrated passives such as transmission lines, interconnects, digital high-speed lines, spiral inductive devices and MIM/MOM capacitors.  

Helic’s innovative RLCK extraction and RF device modelling engines meet perfectly Scintera’s demands for an advanced architecture that combines digital flexibility with the simplicity, small size, and low power consumption of analog circuit processing. Given Scintera’s integral conviction that “quality is designed into a product from the beginning”, selecting Helic’s EDA tools is yet one more endorsement for the company’s high class expertise and technical support.

Helic and Scintera are both enthusiastic about the prospects of this long partnership. According to Bob Koupal, Scintera’s Vice President, Operations: “Scintera looks forward to reap the value that Helic’s tools promise to bring to our design flow and help us deliver our breakthrough low power and high performance RF signal processors into a wide variety of markets and applications.”

Nikolas Provatas, Helic’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development commented: “We are proud and delighted to start a long term partnership with Scintera Networks. We expect to gain a lot from their world-class expertise in very challenging design applications and we aim to be for them a great partner, that will contribute to their success”.
