Pyxis Technology Continues Growth, Achieves Funding Milestone

NexusRoute-HPC Meets Growing Demand for High-Performance Custom Design Solutions

AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 30, 2009 — Pyxis Technology, Inc., the company innovating software solutions for the physical design and routing of custom and system-on-chip (SoC) integrated circuits (ICs), has received the second tranche of cash from its latest U.S. $3 million funding round. This funding milestone recognizes the continued positive growth of the Pyxis business with mixed-signal and analog IC developers, increased business partnerships, and the technical achievements of the Pyxis engineering team in delivering the NexusRoute-HPC custom design product. The financing is provided by investors Austin Ventures, CMEA Ventures, Formative Ventures and KT Venture Group.

The Pyxis NexusRoute-HPC product delivers orders of magnitude faster routing speed and analysis for high-performance custom designs. Over the last year, Pyxis has developed a new custom layout solution that optimizes the routing of advanced analog and mixed-signal designs. Combined with design layout and placement tools, the Pyxis NexusRoute-HPC tool provides powerful all-level hierarchical routing without abstracts, leading to the improved performance and compaction of custom IC designs. A number of the leading electronics original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have installed Pyxis technology; and five major tapeouts have so far been achieved.

“With custom layout now taking over as much as 25% of chip area, routing and chip finishing has become the gating factor delaying the release of multi-million dollar designs,” said Phil Bishop, CEO of Pyxis. “This funding milestone recognizes both the technical progress of Pyxis and the business growth potential shown in custom design. The NexusRoute-HPC technology is the industry leading routing solution for a growing list of custom IC customers and partners worldwide.”
