"Tonight's winner has achieved two of the most difficult feats in the EDA industry," Technical Editor Mike Demler said. "First, it has a history of developing innovative, differentiated products. This latest innovation addresses the problem of simulating electro-static discharge that has challenged designers for many years. The second distinction is to leverage that success into a proposed IPO."
