This is the second acquisition by Synopsys within a month. The company had ealrier acquired Moortec
Synopsys announced it has acquired Light Tec, a provider of optical scattering measurements and measurement equipment. The combination of Synopsys’ optical design software tools with Light Tec’s solutions expands customer access to precision light scattering data for materials and media used in optical systems.
“Light Tec’s proven optical measurement capabilities provide our customers with robust new tools for high-accuracy optical product simulations and visualizations. The acquisition of Light Tec demonstrates our commitment to helping designers meet demanding optical system requirements, speed product development and save R&D costs,” said Dr Howard Ko, general manager of Synopsys’ Silicon Engineering Group.
This acquisition. as per the company, enables Synopsys to continuously augment the materials and media software libraries provided in their optical software products for faster, physics-based system modeling.
Second acquisition within a month
Synopsys had recently acquired Moortec as well. The latter is a provider of in-chip monitoring technology specializing in process, voltage and temperature (PVT) sensors. The terms of the deal, which are not material to Synopsys’ financials, were not disclosed.
“We continue to deliver on our roadmap of innovation to provide silicon lifecycle optimization solutions that address the evolving needs of the dynamic semiconductor industry. This acquisition accelerates the expansion of our SLM platform by providing our customers with a comprehensive data-analytics-driven solution for devices at the most advanced process nodes,” said Sassine Ghazi, chief operating officer of Synopsys had said earlier.
