EDA Tools Provider for Nanometer-Scale ICs and SOCs
Acquired by Mentor Graphics in 2010

Pyxis Technology, an electronic design automation (EDA) company founded in 2004, is developing new integrated circuit (IC) and system on chip (SoC) routing software for complex nanometer IC designs. Our solution is an architecture optimized for the challenges of sub-100 nm manufacturing process technology. It is expected to reduce design-based yield limiters by optimizing designs for a given manufacturing process, reduce the time spent on timing closure, simplify the post-tapeout flow, and improve design yield.
