Movellus launches with focus on extending digital design tools to implement analog functionality


SAN JOSE, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Movellus presented itself today as a provider of software and IP innovations that extend digital design and verification tools to automatically implement functionality that traditionally required a custom analog design lasting several months. As Movellus IP products are 100% digital, they speed time to market, reduce the risk of failure and allow portability to new process nodes.

Movellus also announced today its flagship products, the Movellus PLL, DLL and LDO generators, after three years of product development and successful silicon work with multiple clients.

“Semiconductor companies face tight schedules and increasing design complexity in advanced process nodes,” said Muhammad Faisal, president and CEO of Movellus. “By extending existing digital design tools to create functionality previously only achievable in analog design, Movellus dramatically improves efficiency and cuts development and verification time by months.

“Movellus’ technology represents a real breakthrough in the semiconductor design industry,” said Jim Hogan, Managing Partner, Vista Ventures. “I invested in Movellus after watching Muhammad and his team cross the critical hurdle of proving their silicon technology with customers.”
