Silvaco Joins SEMI, and Electronic System Design Alliance, a SEMI Strategic Association Partner

Sponsored by Businesswire

, a leading global provider of software, IP and services to
semiconductor companies for the design of ICs, digital displays and
electronic systems, today announced that it has joined the Electronic
System Design (ESD) Alliance
, a SEMI
Strategic Association Partner, as a new member. Silvaco joined the ESD
Alliance inspired by SEMI’s commitment to Connect, Collaborate and
Innovate to drive growth across the entire global electronics design and
manufacturing supply chain. Silvaco will leverage SEMI’s global scale
and industry reach to uncover new partner, business and innovation

“Meeting the challenges of semiconductor development for artificial
intelligence (AI), big data, smart cities and autonomous driving
requires a closer collaboration with designers, device developers,
manufacturers and the design automation community,” says David Dutton,
CEO of Silvaco. “SEMI brings these key stakeholders together. Silvaco is
well positioned to be a strong participant due to our ability to
simulate semiconductor processes, devices and materials along with our
EDA and IP solutions for IC design.”

The SEMI and ESD Alliance memberships give Silvaco access to committees
and global platforms that provide opportunities for member companies to
address a range of industry-wide issues. They include export and
government requirements, licensing and software piracy prevention,
interoperability, market tracking information and networking and
educational programs that encourage more entrepreneurs to build
businesses that support the semiconductor design ecosystem.

“EDA companies are vital to the SEMI mission to drive greater value
across the global electronics design and manufacturing supply chain and
enable members to Connect, Collaborate and Innovate as they work to fuel
industry growth and prosperity,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and
CEO. “The stakes are high. Emerging technologies are increasing the
complexity of the IC ecosystem, requiring greater interconnectivity
across the supply chain for the industry to deliver on the promise of
growth through innovation. SEMI welcomes Silvaco with open arms as the
EDA industry plays its crucial role in accelerating and optimizing
innovation across verticals.”

Silvaco is an inaugural exhibitor at ES Design West, the ESD Alliance’s
newest program and the only event in North America that links the
electronic system and semiconductor design community with the global
electronic product design and manufacturing supply chain. Co-located
with SEMICON West 2019, ES Design West promotes the Design and Design
Automation Ecosystem™ from IP, electronic design automation (EDA),
embedded software, design services, design infrastructure and the cloud.
