Montreal, Quebec, Canada -- April 22, 2013 -- Space Codesign® Systems, the developer of an end-to-end automated ESL hardware/software codesign tool, announced today the engagement of Avant Technology (Hsinchu, Taiwan) as its representative in Eastern Asia (China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea and Japan), expanding its global sales and support presence.
Under the agreement, Avant Technology will add the SpaceStudio tool suite to its portfolio of products. This would enable Avant Technology to extend their line of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) products, assisting semiconductor companies in solving complex design problems and bringing chips to market faster.
"We are pleased to team up with Avant Technology to augment our sales efforts in the Asian market," said Dr. Guy Bois, founder and President of Space Codesign Systems. "With their proven track record for creating new sales opportunities, we believe that Avant Technology is our perfect sales partner there." Space Codesign Systems will expand its presence by leveraging Avant Technology’s long-standing client relationships with many major regional and national players.
Headquartered in Hsinchu, Taiwan’s technology hub, Avant Technology’s team has the technical background and the design knowledge to convey the value of Space Codesign’s products. “I am very pleased that Space Codesign has chosen Avant Technology as its representative in Asia to support the sales promotion of SpaceStudio," said Dr. Yao-Chang Chang, General Manager of Avant Technology. "The revolutionary SpaceStudio™ software takes end-to-end hardware/software co-design automatically from high level functional specification to architectural, and then RTL with 3rd party high-level synthesis tools. With support for the Aeroflex-Gaisler Leon3, ARM Cortex-A, -M & -R families, and Xilinx MicroBlaze processors, SpaceStudio has been popular in the aerospace and multimedia industries.”
SpaceStudio’s end-to-end automation reduces the time required to perform SoC design implementation in programmable devices (e.g., FPGA) or in ASIC’s; it lowers development cycle time and costs, and creates better code for embedded systems.
