Ambit Design Systems, Inc.

SoC design technology


Ambit produced tools for system-on-a-chip (SoC) technology, designed to put the functions of different computer chips on one microprocessor.

Cadence acquired Ambit in 1997. Cadence’s Paul McLellan — who used to run the engineering department at Ambit — describes how some of Ambit’s tools are in Cadence’s Genus Synthesis in this June 2020 blog.
