S2C Appoints ChipStart as North American Distributor May 31, 2011

ChipStart will Distribute S2C Rapid SoC Prototyping Solutions in Canada, New England, and Texas

San Jose, CA - May 31, 2011 - S2C Inc., a leading rapid SoC/ASIC prototyping solutions provider, announced that ChipStart will distribute S2C’s rapid SoC prototyping products in Canada, New England and Texas.  In addition to selling S2C’s products, ChipStart will supply first line applications support.

Until now, ChipStart has focused on semiconductor IP. Howard Pakosh, ChipStart's President and CEO said: "S2C's products are a natural extension of our product line. The same engineering team that is deciding on silicon IP is deciding on prototyping tools. We have used S2C's tools with our SoC System Management (SSM) product and are very impressed with both S2C and their 4th generation SoC prototyping products."

"We are building out our North American sales team and ChipStart is a perfect fit for our needs. They have a strong sales and support staff in important locations where we do not currently have coverage. ChipStart has sales offices across North America and throughout the world," said Steve Pollock, VP of Marketing and Business Development for S2C.

S2C is focused on delivering rapid prototyping products.  S2C provides a very broad family of Altera and Xilinx rapid SoC prototyping board from 3 million gates to over 32 million gates.  These boards can be tiled or stacked for even higher capacity.  S2C’s TAI Player Pro software is used to map designs across multiple FPGAs and to set up verification.  In addition to prototyping boards and software, S2C also provides an extensive set of Prototype Ready™ accessories, IP, and reference designs.  S2C is focused on giving user a complete suite of tools to rapidly create a prototype.  S2C’s recently announced TAI Verification Module gives the user new verification capabilities that greatly enhance debug visibility, while retaining RTL names, without having to recompile the FPGAs.

S2C's products have been successfully used in broad array of applications from consumer, communication, medical, HDTV, set top boxes, storage, networking, imaging, and military.
