Share Article

Avant Technology and Agamem Technology will distribute breakthrough Integrated Circuit design and data transmission tools from Saratoga Data Systems to speed time to market for ICs in Taiwan and China.

Saratoga Data Systems (Saratoga Data) has signed agreements with Avant Technology, Inc. (Avant) in Taiwan and Agamem Technology Co., Ltd. (Agamem) in Shanghai, China for distributing Saratoga's products, Bantam GDSII Stream Optimizer™ and Flume Network Accelerator™.

Bantam GDSII Stream Optimization™ is the only solution for compacting, not compressing GDSII Stream data files. The file created by Bantam is point-for-point identical to the original input data, verified by internal point consistency checking, and 100% compatible to the GDSII Stream file standard. Bantam compacted files are typically 50% to 98% smaller than the original files, enabling many downstream applications to execute 2 to 20 times faster.

Flume Network Accelerator™ eliminates latency from long-haul internet data transfers, increasing throughput 10 to 100 times faster than standard FTP transmissions. An entirely software-based solution, Flume makes no changes to file format or content and can utilize any network, public or leased internet line. Flume does not require any changes to network infrastructure and always maintains 100% data accuracy.

"Saratoga Data Systems products enable significant acceleration in IC design and time to market for new IC devices. We believe that this agreement with Saratoga Data Systems will bring a great deal of value to the growing IC industry in Taiwan and in China," said Bing-Ling Fan, President of Avant Technology Inc. and Agamem Technology Shanghai Co., Ltd.

"Taiwan and China are playing significant roles in the world-wide development of integrated circuits. Saratoga Data's products will facilitate faster time to market for the IC industry in Taiwan and China." says Greg Fairbank, President of Saratoga Data, "Avant and Agamem are leaders in EDA distribution in the region. Our new partnership will provide tremendous value to design and fabrication sites in Taiwan and China."
