ARM® to strengthen its IP configuration and integration capability and address increasing SoC complexity with Duolog acquisition.
May 29, 2014 -- ARM is acquiring Duolog Technologies, a leader in design configuration and integration technology for the semiconductor industry. The acquisition will expand ARM's position at the forefront of deploying complex system IP including debug and trace IP, and will help ARM partners design and deploy system IP and manage increasing SoC integration complexity. The agreement will extend ARM's market reach for ARM CoreLink™ Interconnect and Controllers and CoreSight™ debug and trace roadmaps across mobile, enterprise and IoT markets. Additionally ARM will extend the use of Duolog Socrates within its own sub-system design flow.
Duolog's award-winning Socrates platform configures IP in a standardized way ideal for importing into EDA tools to perform tasks such as sub-system functional verification and validation. Over the last 10 years Socrates has been used for over 100 successful tape-outs. ARM will continue to support Duolog's Socrates licensee base.
The acquisition is expected to be completed in Q3 2014. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
