Altair acquires MODELiiS

Altair has acquired MODELiiS, a supplier of electronic design automation software for circuit modelling, system design and simulation tools based in Grenoble, France. MODELiiS solutions are geared towards the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, and complex hybrid systems. The acquisition will help Altair to strengthen its portfolio in these areas – particularly IOT which will be important in the development of autonomous vehicles.

MODELiiS was originally a start-up company incubated within a larger EDA design firm.  Their main products simulate C code behaviour for various chips and include a very high-performance SPICE circuit simulator.  This technology is used in EDA, system modelling, electromagnetics and to model sensors for the IoT.

‘With the MODELiiS acquisition, we plan to continue our growth and investment in our EDA capabilities to deliver the most relevant, optimal, simulation-driven design solutions for IoT,’ said James Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman and CEO. ‘Simulation and optimisation are fundamental to the design of communication and controls for everything from personal devices to autonomous vehicles.’

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
