Apr 16, 2021 | Hot Topics

There was one more deal yesterday, that I just couldn’t get to: Siemens is adding to its IC verification portfolio with the acquisition of OneSpin Solutions from Azini Capital. OneSpin, according to Siemens, is “a strong, fast-growing business [that provides] a broad portfolio of formal applications for assuring IC designs operate as intended under the most adverse environmental conditions across key growth markets”.

Siemens Digital Industries Software SVP, IC Verification, Ravi Subramanian said that OneSpin enables Siemens to offer “a broad portfolio of automated formal apps for key use-cases, including trust and security, safety, RISC-V and FPGA applications. The unique combination of Siemens’ existing formal products, together with OneSpin Solutions’ domain expertise, outstanding app portfolio and ‘apps-first’ mindset, can enable Siemens to provide customers with increased efficiency and confidence across the complete verification platform (simulation, formal, emulation and prototyping), leading to faster verification, automation and debug.”

OneSpin Solutions technology will be added to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, as part of the EDA solutions.

Details of the acquisition were not announced, but it is expected to close before the end of June, 2021.
