FTD Solutions and EDASIP to Offer Plunify’s Full Line of Cloud Computing Semiconductor Tools
Singapore, December 6, 2011 – Accelerating critical CPU- and memory-intensive FPGA design tasks,Plunify Pte Ltd today announced that it has signed distribution and rep agreements whereby FTD Solutions and EDASIP Associates Ltd. will distribute Plunify’s full line of cloud computing semiconductor tools. These partnerships give Plunify broad coverage and an expanded sales presence in South East Asia and Europe.
In order to deliver targeted support and customer service, each sales partner will focus on a key region. FTD Solutions, a leading technology solution provider in South East Asia and India, will handle distribution initially in Singapore and Vietnam; EDASIP will distribute Plunify products in the UK and Ireland.
Leveraging cloud computing capabilities, Plunify has developed cloud computing solutions that enable semiconductor chip designers to shorten product time-to-market and reduce development costs with no disruption to existing workflows. According to Harnhua Ng, Director of Engineering at Plunify, “Our newly formed channel relationships with these top sales reps in Asia and Europe will help Plunify garner important customer wins, as well as allow us to work closely with our customers in each region.”
Cloud computing has become strategically important to the semiconductor industry, in particular the FPGA and Electronic Design Automation segments. The complexity and cost of design workflows strain in-house development resources, adding delays to product time-to-market and increasing processing overhead. Plunify’s EDAxtend platform enables users to securely offload design tasks within their existing workflows to remote data centers, thereby accelerating development time and reducing costs associated with economies of scale.
David Wood, Managing Director for EDASIP, noted that, “Plunify offers an intelligent, cost-effective solution for eliminating calendar time and computing resource constraints in today’s challenging semiconductor projects.”
Plunify’s cloud computing solutions are available now from EDASIP and FTD Solutions. For more information, visit www.plunify.com .
