Synopsys To Acquire QTronic GmbH

News

Synopsys has announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire QTronic GmbH, a supplier of simulation, test tools, and services for automotive software and systems development headquartered in Germany. When completed, the acquisition will broaden Synopsys' product portfolio of automotive solutions serving the needs of automotive Tier 1 and OEM companies and add a team of highly experienced engineers to accelerate technology development and customer deployment.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including certain foreign regulatory filings, and is expected to close in Synopsys' fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. The terms of the deal, which is not material to Synopsys financials, are not being disclosed.

The rapid growth of vehicle software, combined with the complex interaction of hardware, software and physical components, creates an enormous challenge for automobile manufacturers and their suppliers developing future powertrain, electric vehicle, advanced driver assistance and autonomous driving systems. To address these challenges, automotive companies are deploying virtual development and test environments enabling software development to start earlier and accelerate continuous integration and test for over the air updates. QTronic simulation and test tools will accelerate Synopsys delivery of a comprehensive automotive virtual prototyping solution for system and software development throughout the automotive electronic supply chain.

"From semiconductors to OEMs, automotive companies are looking to accelerate the development, verification and test of increasingly complex and software rich automotive electronic systems," said Manoj Gandhi, general manager of the Synopsys Verification Group. "With the acquisition of QTronic, we are strengthening our position as the leader in virtual prototyping solutions and will continue to deliver powerful virtual development and test solutions that enable automotive companies to develop vehicle software earlier, faster, and better."

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
