Calypto® Design Systems, a provider of Electronic System-Level hardware design and power optimization products, has forged an agreement with AcconSys®, Inc., a major distributor of electronic design automation (EDA) products in China. AcconSys will provide sales and support for Calypto’s products — Catapult®, SLEC® and PowerPro® — throughout China.

Calypto’s tools enable ESL design engineers to dramatically improve time to product and design quality while reducing the power consumption of their SoC devices. Expanding Calypto’s distribution channel to include a top-tier distributor like AcconSys brings much-needed support to China, which accounted for 70% of total semiconductor IPOs during 2010 and is now a significant source of new semiconductor companies and financial funding for start-ups.

Calypto’s product portfolio of Catapult, SLEC and PowerPro and China’s semiconductor market growth delivers a perfect combination for rapid growth of ESL hardware tools from Calypto.

There is tremendous potential for Calypto in China as more product developers adopt automated tools and methodologies for SoC design.” – Greg Orzech Vice President Worldwide Sales Calypto

We are very pleased to be working with AcconSys, which has a long history of technical expertise and local knowledge to make our partnership a great success,” he added. As device complexity and size continue to escalate, system-level design and verification has emerged as the primary challenge in the development of System on Chip (SoC) designs.

Catapult High Level Synthesis, SLEC C/SystemC to RTL formal equivalence and PowerPro automatic RTL power optimization platforms are used by seven out of the top ten semiconductor companies and over 100 leading consumer electronics companies worldwide.

We are excited about partnering with Calypto to expand China’s market in ESL hardware design and RTL power optimization.” – Lily Wang Sales Director

We believe the combination of AcconSys expertise in the China EDA market along with Calypto’s best-in-class solutions will produce great success in China,” she added.
