Carbon Design Systems Inc., a supplier of virtual platform and secure model solutions, recently announced that it has established a new office in Austin, Texas. The officials from the company said the new office will help Carbon further build on its strategic presence in the region.
The new office will be run by Brad Perdue, who was previously working with Atrenta as strategic account manager. Perdue has also worked as vice president of business development and sales for Australian Semiconductor Technology Company. Moreover, he has also held the position of CoWare's director of global accounts and major account manager for both Cadence and Synopsys (News - Alert).
"It's fitting that we expand our presence beyond the Boston area and Silicon Valley to Austin, where design teams are developing advanced and innovative electronics devices of all kinds," notes Seaton. "Brad Perdue is a long-time sales executive with intimate knowledge of the design landscape. We welcome him to the team."
Carbon provides a full suite of tools to quickly assemble a unified virtual prototype which can be used by all designers. SoC Designer Plus enables the same platform assembled by the architects to optimize their architectural decisions to be used for software development. Carbon Model Studio automates the creation of models with 100 percent accuracy. These models provide an automatic path to jumpstart the model creation process and deliver hardware accuracy to any virtual platform.
This same modeling technology has enabled Carbon to establish numerous relationships with key IP vendors such as ARM (News - Alert), MIPS and Denali. Models from these vendors and many more are available via Carbon IP Exchange, a web portal where our customers can configure, build and manage and download their IP models. Carbon’s focus on providing the best solution for a virtual prototyping has yielded a unique offering called Swap & Play which promises to finally meet the market expectation for system level design.
