Xilinx® leads the Programmable Logic Device (PLD) market - one of the fastest growing segments of the semiconductor industry. This market features a revolutionary technology called the field programmable gate array (FPGA) that our company pioneered in 1984. Xilinx is the world's leading supplier of programmable logic solutions. We supply customers with "off-the-shelf" logic devices that customers can program to perform specific functions using the development tools we provide. This programmability provides a revolutionary alternative to fixed or custom logic devices that typically require many months to design, test, and manufacture. Xilinx customers enjoy the benefit of faster time-to-market and increased product design flexibility as a result.

Logo TexEDA

About TexEDA Design

The TexEDA companies develop and distribute software aimed at the development of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (IC's). The fully integrated product portfolio includes applications for schematic capture, net-listing, simulation, layout editing and physical verification. These mature products, referred to collectively as LayTools, have been used successfully worldwide within the IC design industry for many years. TexEDA software was formally developed and maintained by Catena Software and distributed by Matricus Inc. These two enterprises, with services to the IC design industry which go back over twenty years, have restructured under one name, linking the expertise and experience of robust software development, with an intimate knowledge of the needs of IC development engineers.

Integrated within LayTools is the powerful LaySim simulator, powered by the renowned SMASH™ kernel developed by Dolphin Integration.
LaySim is offered within LayTools as either a comprehensive device-level simulator (Spice compatible) or as a mixed-mode solution, adding Verilog structural and behavioral support.

TexEDA services its international client base from its headquarters in Lewisville, Texas.

Aim of the partnership

TexEDA and Dolphin Integration are long-term partners. The two teams have worked together for many years, principally for the promotion and distribution of simulation solutions.
This relationship recently became tighter, prompted by a mutual desire to integrate the companies' high quality solutions to yield a comprehensive route to accurate logic, analog and mixed-signal IC design.
This cooperation results in a complete and attractive flow, technically competitive with other high-end products available on the market while providing unique productivity-enhancing features, but at a price-point such that it will become THE reference design flow for engineering teams of any size!
With an open exchange of technical data and a combined vision, both companies commit to continue building on the significant advances that have already been made, and to marry their individual areas of expertise to provide users with the tightest interfaces between circuit design and implementation modules.

Of course, as a firm foundation for this mutual representation, this partnership aims to provide a support response second-to-none!

TexEDA is also SMASH Reseller in Texas (TX, USA).
