the leader in next generation physical design solutions that address the
challenges associated with advanced semiconductor process nodes (such as
16/14nm FinFET), marked the company's eighth year of continued growth.
Included in new business in 2013 were companies such as Mellanox
Austin R&D Center (SARC), and Solarflare.
Semiconductor reported that it had completely switched over to
ATopTech tools, while renewals of existing multi-million dollar,
multi-year contracts with cmpanies such as Broadcom
Corporation and PMC-Sierra
also contributed to growth.
"Given our aggressive schedules, ATopTech's tools allowed us to achieve
our challenging design goals much quicker and much more predictably,
while using fewer engineering resources," said Keith Hawkins, senior
vice president, Samsung Austin R&D Center. "ATopTech enabled us to
significantly reduce area and power while increasing the performance of
our latest designs."
"Place and route technology is critical to our design projects,
especially when we moved to the 28nm process node," said Evelyn Landman,
vice president of Back-End Engineering at Mellanox Technologies. "We
selected ATopTech's physical design tools because we were impressed with
the tools' ease of use while maintaining excellent QoR."
"Cypress has used ATopTech's Aprisa and Apogee solutions for several
years now and found the tools to be flexible and fast with excellent
silicon results," said Dragomir Nikolich, director of CAD at Cypress
Semiconductor. "Aprisa's ability to handle a very large number of
scenarios, routing capability, timing and power accuracy have been an
incredible asset. Front to back correlation of results has been
exceptional, allowing us to accurately predict final chip sizes very
early, enabling early sound business decisions. In addition, the support
we've received from ATopTech has been extraordinary -- from enhancements
and improvements in order to support our proprietary process all the way
to routing engine enhancements to obtain the highest routed gate density
ATopTech has been delivering advanced place and route solutions to
leading semiconductor companies for the past eight years. The company's
sustained growth is due to their commitment to customers to deliver
shorter design time, improved productivity and quality results for
leading-edge sub-nanometer designs.
"ATopTech's consistent rate of growth is driven by providing value to
our customers. A healthy balance of renewal orders, expansion orders
from existing customers, and competitive wins resulting in new
customers," said Eric Thune, vice president of sales and marketing at
ATopTech. "Our customer's view place and route technology as a
competitive differentiator for them, and ATopTech's tools and high level
of support help them achieve that."
