DARMSTADT, GERMANY– Computer Simulation Technology (CST) has acquired IdemWorks s.r.l., a provider of modeling tools and services.
Prof. Stefano Grivet-Talocia, founder of IdemWorks, called the acquisition the "natural evolution" of IdemWorks.
"Since its foundation in 2007 as an academic spinoff, IdemWorks has been continuously growing, both in market share and in reputation. The time has come to combine our advanced model extraction algorithms with top-class field solver engines, and the technology leading set of tools in CST."
“The IdemWorks and CST teams will work closely to develop a roadmap of efficient enhancements and integrations that will leverage the best capabilities of the combined IdemWorks and CST products,” said Michelangelo Bandinu, CEO of IdemWorks. “We are very excited about the creative possibilities that this acquisition brings and are confident that this will provide significant benefits to our customers.”
IdemWorks tool, IdEM, provides passive and causal broadband computational models for use in circuit simulation environments for transient and AC analyses.
In announcing the deal, CST called IdEM a user-friendly tool for the generation of Spice-ready macromodels of electrical interconnect structures such as packages, connectors, via fields, discontinuities up to backplane links and complete power delivery networks.
CST did not disclose the purchase price or terms.
