Optima Design Automation is an EDA startup in the area of soft-error mitigation, chip reliability, ISO-26262 certification, Automotive chips and Space chips.
Optima has developed the FIE™ (Fault Injection Engine) Technology dedicated to test or simulate chip behavior under soft-errors, hard-errors and different reliability issues. Based on these simulation results, our customers either make intelligent decisions on mitigation techniques, like selective-flip-flop hardening, or get assessment of the resilient of the chip to theses problem in order to get certified for different standards like ISO-26262.
CosmicASIC is Optima’s first product based on the FIE™ technology is orders of magnitude faster than existing simulation based solutions (x23,000 in one case), reducing a simulation task needed to test a specific chip from 135 years of simulations to less than 2.15 days, on a single CPU.
Optima is focused on customers working on mission-critical chips that come from the following application: Data-Centers, High-end-network-devices, Medical, Automotive, Industrial and Aerospace.
