Hyderabad, India, — November 3 , 2004 — Sunnyvale-based SynTest Technologies, a leading provider of Design-for-Test (DFT) technology, has signed QualCore Logic as distribution partner for India to provide support in India to companies seeking to improve their Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) and system testability. SynTest Technologies, Inc., est. 1990, develops and markets advanced design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-debug/diagnosis (DFD) tools throughout the world, to semiconductor companies, system houses, and design service providers.
Today, many semiconductor multi-national corporations (MNCs), both large integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and small fabless semiconductor companies, are either setting up their own design centers in India or offering “Turn-key” projects to Indian design companies. This has lead to an increase in demand for Electronic Design Automation (IC – design) tools, including Design for Test technology and services, in India .
“We have seen a steady increase in the number of successful ASIC tape-outs. SynTest has impressive technology to improve an electronic design’s testability and fault coverage. The combination of SynTest’s tools with the comprehensive distribution, ASIC implementation and customer support services from QualCore Logic will enable ASIC design companies in India to increase productivity, lower design cost and shorten time-to-market.” M.L.N. Acharyulu, Managing Director, QualCore Logic said.
Dr. Ravi Apte, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at SynTest remarked, “The emerging market for Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) design in India calls for timely local support for EDA and DFT products. We are confident that QualCore, with its extensive ASIC realization capabilities, will be able to offer proper local support in India to companies seeking to improve their ASIC and system testability and reduce test costs.”
Founded in 1994, QualCore Logic Pvt. Ltd. develops and markets silicon-proven analog and digital IP and ASIC design implementation services for systems-on-chip (SoCs). It can take an engineering or register transfer level (RTL) specification to GDSII through final silicon, and has designed 10-million gate chips implemented in 0.13 micron and other process technologies. QualCore operates design and support centers in Sunnyvale , CA , USA . and Hyderabad , India . Its Indian office is located at: 7-145, Habsiguda, Hyderabad , India , 500007.

SynTest Technologies, Inc., est. 1990, develops and markets advanced design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-debug/diagnosis (DFD) tools throughout the world, to semiconductor companies, system houses, and design service providers. The company’s products improve an electronic design’s testability and fault coverage and result in reduced defect levels and reduced slippage in time-to-market (TTM). The products also reduce overall design and test costs, by helping to reduce design iterations as well as the time and reloads on automatic test equipment (ATE). These products include tools for logic BIST, memory BIST, boundary-scan synthesis, DFT testability analysis, VirtualScan synthesis and ATPG with XtremeCompactä test vectors, concurrent fault simulation, silicon debug and diagnosis. The company, headquartered in Sunnyvale , California , has offices in Taiwan , Korea and Japan , and distributors in Europe and Asia including Israel .
