Dr. Martin Vlach founded Lynguent, Inc. in 2001 as an independent consultancy firm. In 2004 the business was restructured as a privately-held company to focus on electronic design automation (EDA) productivity tools. Lynguent supplies integrated analog and mixed-signal (AMS) design development and verification products to the global semiconductor and electronics industries. Customers use Lynguent’s productivity tools and services to create, maintain, reuse, debug, validate and share models of AMS components, subsystems and systems. Using Lynguent’s products, customers accelerate the modeling and simulation of complex systems and circuits by a factor of at least 10.
ModLyng™ Integrated Modeling Environment (IME) revolutionizes the way HDL-based simulation models are created, managed and supported for analog, digital and mixed-signal domains. Using ModLyng’s graphical modeling technology, modeling tasks can be completed in a fraction of the time required for traditional text-based methods. Two independent university studies demonstrated that ModLyng reduces, by at least a factor of 10, the time and cost required to create and support simulation models.
Lynguent offers two ModLyng Design and Verification (DV) Studios that are based on the core ModLyng IME. The studios enable designers to start modeling and simulation as early as the requirements stage. Designers can efficiently develop models, create executable specifications and testbenches, seamlessly export the models to multiple languages and simulators, and manage multiple levels of model abstraction. Designers can also share models of their components and subsystems with product integrators.
(AMS) targets the development of analog and AMS models of parts and subsystems. The product supports simulating these models in all popular simulators supporting Verilog-A, Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS, and MAST.
(EDMS) targets the development of analog and AMS parts and subsystems to be used in a digital flow. Such real number models use wreal ports in Verilog and real signal ports in VHDL and can be simulated in all popular Verilog-AMS and VHDL simulators. Using event-driven techniques, such models simulate two to three orders of magnitude faster than AMS models for the same device.
Lynguent is focused on delivering superior solutions for breaking the AMS modeling bottlenecks common to many industries. Using Lynguent’s model development technologies, semiconductor and electronic systems companies alike can speed time-to-market and build profitability through dramatically improved engineering productivity. Lynguent’s tools provide practical modeling solutions across broad technology markets and applications, including:
- System on Chip
- Production product
- Board Level Design
- Models of components delivered by manufacturers
- Green Energy and Power
- Smart Grid
- Electric Vehicles
- Radiation Hardened Design
- Military and Aerospace
- Terrestrial digital applications at small geometries
In addition to revenue from product sales, government research programs, and services work, Lynguent is funded through private investment. To date, the company has raised over $8M in private capital.
Lynguent, Inc. is an innovator in delivering modeling and simulation for analog and mixed-signal systems to integrated circuit and electronic systems design companies. Lynguent’s tools revolutionize modeling tasks by replacing traditional HDL-based coding methods with graphical development of simulation models. The company is staffed by electronics industry veterans with extensive experience in modeling and simulation including Dr. Martin Vlach, Dr. Alan Mantooth, Ernst Christen, Dr.sc.techn. and James Holmes.
