Computer Simulation Technology has announced the acquisition of IdemWorks, a provider of modelling tools and services.
IdemWorks' product IdEM is a 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. Starting from their input-output port responses, derived from measurement or simulation, IdEM provides passive and causal broadband computational models that can be used in any circuit simulation environment for reliable transient and AC analyses.
'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.'
Stefano Grivet-Talocia, founder of IdemWorks, added: 'This acquisition is 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 Studio Suite is the optimal choice for us. The planned tight integration between the two platforms will lead to significant innovation in the near future, with major benefits for end users and customers.'
