EDA startup Aniah SA (Grenoble, France) has raised €6 million to speed up the deployment of its verification and design support software for semiconductors.
The Series A round led by Supernova Invest, with BNP Invest, Crédit Agricole Sud Rhône Alpes (CASRA), Bpifrance and some individuals completing the financing. This brings the amount raised by Aniah to €8.3 million.
Aniah was founded in 2019 and claims to have software, available for license since June 2022, that can accelerates verification processes by a factor of a thousand and correct design errors early in development. Aniah has worked with STMicroelectronics on the software for two years.
The company said it would use the funds raised to improve sales into Asia, the US and Israel. The money will also be used to finalize the development of software modules for chip reliability analysis, design project monitoring or APIs for AI-based automated design.
“This fundraising supports our ambition to become a leading player in the analog design of integrated circuits. Our analysis capacity provides a solution to the many difficulties encountered by our customers, both in design and in qualification of their projects,” said Vincent Bligny, co-founder and listed as CEO of Aniah at the company website. Remi Moriceau, is listed as co-founder and CTO.
“It is essential for STMicroelectronics to explore innovative EDA solutions wherever they can create value for our customers. This is the case with Aniah, with whom we have been working for more than two years and whose tool promises to revolutionize IC design thanks to a disruptive approach to the crucial verification stage” said Mourad Djouder, manager of PDK and design flows at STMicroelectronics, in the same statement.
