Altair Acquires Polliwog Co. Ltd, Growing Software Toolset for Electronic Design Automation (EDA)

TROY, Mich., Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altair, (Nasdaq: ALTR) a global technology company providing solutions in product development, high-performance computing and data analytics, today announced the acquisition of Polliwog Co. Ltd., a high-tech software company based near Seoul, providing EDA software to the rapidly growing electronics industry. 

Polliwog expands Altair’s solution portfolio for system-level engineering to the PCB design and analysis market. Its impressive customer roster includes major consumer electronics companies, such as Samsung and LG Electronics. The products include a powerful PCB modeler, simulation solvers, and design verification tools, and integrates seamlessly into customer environments that use any of the leading ECAD PCB design solutions.  

The PollEx Modeler imports complete PCB design data and provides users with convenient ways to explore design details and verify manufacturability. PollEx is an open solution, which transfers data flawlessly between different ECAD and simulation environments. Its many features include query, measure, finding objects, and various reporting. It includes integrated solvers for circuit, thermal, power and signal integrity simulation that are easy to use and give instant multi-disciplinary design feedback.

“PollEx shares Altair’s open system philosophy and integrates easily into customer environments that use any of the leading PCB design tools and deliver innovative and practical solutions, a perfect fit for what we call simulation-driven design,” said James Scapa, Altair’s chairman, chief executive officer and founder. “Polliwog’s powerful PCB modeler and design verification tools allow EDA engineers at small and enterprise customers to collaborate at never-seen-before levels and greatly expands our HyperWorks solution portfolio.”

The integrated design of mechanical behavior and electronics is a trademark of today’s product development. Throughout the last several years Altair has expanded from its foundation of mechanical simulation software into areas of systems simulation and electromagnetics. Polliwog ’s PCB solvers and verification tools extend these capabilities further. 

“Our business has mostly been focused on Korea where we work with the biggest electronics manufacturers, and we see Altair as the right fit for global expansion,” said Sun Hewh Huh, president and chief executive officer of Polliwog. “As the worlds of mechanical and electronic design are converging, Altair’s culture of simulation-driven innovation is the perfect home for our people and technology.”
