About Aptix Corporation
Aptix Corporation?s products are used to verify system and system-on-chip (SoC) designs prior to integrated circuit (IC) and board tape-out and fabrication. Aptix?s products utilize the block-based verification methodology, which provides a mechanism to map and verify individual design blocks incrementally and in parallel with the design creation process. This methodology shortens the net prototype creation time to achieve real-world operation of the prototype to the few days required to map and verify the last RTL block designed. Debugging designs becomes simple because the mapping process is both under the user?s interactive control and follows the natural hierarchy of the design. This also makes tracing design problems back the source netlist an intuitive process.
The company is privately held and is headquartered at 2880 North First Street, San Jose, Calif. 95134. Telephone 408.428-6200, Fax 408.944-0646. Visit Aptix on the Web at: http://www.aptix.com
