Vizef Ltd.

Distributor and tool developer


Originally part of HHB Systems in the United Kingdom. Vizef became an EDA distribution company when HHB Systems was acquired. As an independent company, 3Com Ireland asked Vizef to locate a simple graphical ASIC design aide, and unable to find such a product, Vizef developed one, originally called Gema – later called Expressive-II.

The company changed its name to Expressive Systems in 1999. It later went out of business.
