Testimonials

The Diakopto team are the unsung heroes of the semiconductor industry. The critical tools they provide are accelerating the innovation of high-speed circuits in the most advanced chip technologies. I haven’t met a chip design that doesn’t appreciate their technology. #keepinnovating
Nafea Bshara, VP/Distinguished Engineer at Amazon
Much of my time is spent digging into the details of the layout to get the best performance possible for the power, area, and ultimately TIME available. Diakopto’s ParagonX has been indispensable in sifting through the haystack to find the proverbial needle. What would take weeks of trial and error can now be done in one revision – truly game changing.
Eric Groen, Principal Engineer at Microsoft
I can personally attest to the importance of a tool like ParagonX for state of the art AMS design. I was instantly more productive once I started using it, and couldn’t live without it now.
Jade Kizer, SerDes Design Architect at Broadcom
Keep innovating Maxim and team. We were early partners of yours and are excited to see you continuing your innovative ways to help deliver both insight and speed.
Tony Pialis, CEO at Alphawave
Your tools are real life savers! Keep innovating and getting us out of trouble!
Mikael Sahrling, Principal Engineer at IPG Photonics
It’s not enough these days to run simulations faster and faster when it’s hard to understand what’s fundamentally going on in the post-layout design. Trying to understand the simulation results is taking more and more of our time. In particular, trying to understand how the parasitics affect the simulation is becoming the dominant activity. Which is exactly where your tool comes into play.
Tom Krawczyk, VP of Analog Design at Jariet Technologies
Keep up the great work. The ultimate measure of success for any semiconductor company is not simulation time, but time-to-market and time-to-value. Interpreting and debugging post-layout simulations cause lengthy iterations that delay TTM. Good to see you and your team developing tools to overcome this critical bottleneck.
Ted Tewksbury, CEO at Eta Compute
With ParagonX, I can find a weak point on a 20GB extract in minutes, taking me right to the coordinates of the problematic area.
Ken Dyer, Principal Analog Design Engineer at Microsoft
ParagonX is a great productivity tool for anyone who wants to deliver quality designs that push the envelope.
Boris Murman, EE Professor at Stanford University
It’s great to see you and your team continuing with innovative solutions and accelerating productivity.
Robert Wang, CEO at AnalogX
It just goes to show how important it is to really know and understand your circuit. If you don’t you just constantly “shoot in the dark” and it becomes very time consuming to fix your problems. Parasitics has always been difficult and countless home-grown tools have been created to help debug these issues. Now the SPEF/DSPF files are so huge that even these tools take forever to find the relevant parasitics. ParagonX really hits the mark in its speed and functionality. A designer can really understand, debug and fix these issues very efficiently!
