Imperas expands commercial operations with Quantum Leap Sales for US market growth

Quantum Leap Sales

Imperas’ leading virtual platform simulation technology and embedded software analysis tools address the growth in new and emerging applications and increasing RISC-V adoption.

RISC-V Summit, Santa Clara, Calif., December 4, 2018 — Imperas Software Ltd., the leader in virtual platforms and high-performance software simulation, today announced it is expanding its commercial channels to address the growth opportunities in the US market with Quantum Leap Sales (QLS) as its US representative. QLS is a leader in Semiconductor IP and EDA tool sales, which is an ideal alignment with the Imperas virtual platforms, simulation and software development tools for SoC and complex system development.

The market growth in SoC and system designs in emerging market applications such as IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), Safety Critical, and Automotive represent significant growth opportunities, at the same time RISC-V is gaining momentum in multiple new and established market segments.

“QLS are an ideal partner for the US market with extensive experience in Semiconductor IP and EDA sales,” said Larry Lapides, VP worldwide sales, Imperas. “They have exceptional experience in the complete design flow from early SoC architecture through verification and test. As the latest addition to the Imperas sales channel they will greatly enhance our presence at a time of unprecedented growth opportunities in emerging applications and RISC-V adoption.”

Mike Ingster, President and Founder of QLS, commented: “Imperas solutions for early software development have never been more appropriate with development schedules more critical than ever. We believe that simulation-based verification is fast becoming an essential requirement in complex SoCs, and together with advanced debug and analysis tools for many-core and heterogeneous designs will greatly reduce development schedules for next generation devices.”

Imperas is a contributing sponsor for the inaugural RISC-V Summit 3-6 December in Santa Clara, California. Imperas will exhibit virtual platform solutions and technology for RISC-V based designs, and deliver a presentation on RISC-V compliance in the era of open ISA and custom instructions.
