Test and Verification Solutions (TVS) today announced that it has signed with HyperSilicon and Grand Technology Inc. (GTI) to promote their product and services portfolio in China mainland and Taiwan regions respectively.

Both HyperSilicon and GTI come with a strong background and vast experience in promoting ASIC, SoC based solutions and EDA tools to Chinese and Taiwanese semiconductor customers. Both partners will provide TVS the necessary marketing and sales support and reach out to the various semiconductor organisations in those regions.

Dr. Mike Bartley, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TVS said, “We have a strong portfolio and a niche focus on verification and are confident that our products and services have a worldwide demand. However a strong regional support is necessary in conveying the added value that our portfolio brings to our customers. We strongly feel this partnership with HyperSilicon and GTI is a great way forward in addressing the requirements and verification challenges faced by customers in China and Taiwan regions.”

“HyperSilicon is excited to associate itself with Test and Verification Solutions to help them penetrate the China market,” said Thomas Yan, VP at HyperSilicon. “They have a strong verification and testing background having proven themselves as Verification Experts with most of the leading industry players. We are very confident that with such credentials and a solid portfolio of products and services, they will create a good impact and efficiently address ASIC/SoC verification requirements in the Chinese market.”

Mr. Chin-Lung King, CEO at GTI said, “We are happy to introduce the products and services of Test and Verification Solutions to Taiwanese semiconductor companies. TVS has a good width and depth of offerings with an emphasis on hardware verification and software testing. With tight budgets, zero re-spins and challenging timelines to be met by design houses in the creation of complex SoCs, the main focus is to have skilled manpower and reliable third party verification IPs to verify their designs. We are convinced that TVS products and services provide all of these in Taiwan.”
