Synopsys Completes Acquisition Of ExpertIO

Technology company Synopsys, Inc. (SNPS) Monday announced that it acquired ExpertIO, Inc., an independent provider of verification IP, or VIP, for industry standard protocols. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Manoj Gandhi, General Manager of Synopsis Verification Group, commented, "By acquiring ExpertIO, Synopsys adds a new set of storage protocols to our expanding VIP portfolio, plus an experienced team of development experts to help us drive the next level of innovation in VIP technology."

ExpertIO's entire team of engineers will join Synopsys' Verification Group. The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ExpertIO, Craig Stoops, will join the Synopsys team as a technical leader helping drive Synopsys' VIP roadmap.

With leading SoC designs deploying more complex protocols, VIP has become a critical component of the verification environment. VIP provides functional models of on- and off-chip protocols that verification engineers use to test all of the interfaces on an SoC before manufacturing.
