Quest Innovations Becomes Preferred Partner in Aldec IP Program

2/10/2005 - Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed-language simulation and advanced design tools for ASIC and FPGA devices, announced the addition of Quest Innovations B.V. as a Preferred IP Partner in its IP Core Partner Program.

“Because of Aldec’s 20 years in verification, the IP Core Partner Program is a very good resource for engineers contemplating the use of IP in their designs,” stated Richard Meester, President/CEO from Quest Innovations. “Designers interested in specific IP cores, or in simply researching what is available, can go to one spot and look at the types of cores provided by Aldec and its IP Core Partners. Especially Silicon Proven IP, for FPGA’s and Structured ASIC’s, is playing a more and more important role in SoC design projects.”

“As system-level designs increase in size, we are seeing many more requests for verified IP, both for available cores as well as custom cores,” said Creighton Roethler, sales and marketing manager for the Advanced Products Group at Aldec. “We are pleased that Quest Innovations and their portfolio of intellectual property has joined our partner program, as this continues to add to the variety of high-quality IP for our customers to use in their designs.”

Aldec IP Core Partners have a number of marketing opportunities available that help them reach over 10,000 customer prospects internationally, including becoming part of Aldec’s IP Core Generator for Active-HDL. For more information on benefits to customers please visit:

About Quest Innovations
Quest Innovations B.V. is a privately held high tech company specialising in developing turn-key reusable IP. With our expertise in IP design, engineering services and embedded systems make us an ideal partner for our customers to develop custom specific products on a turn-key basis.

Started in 1998 Quest Innovations has done several high tech IP modules and turn-key projects for our customers. With IP blocks ranging from 16/32-Bit Risc processors cores, SVGA Controllers with 2D/3D Acceleration, Memory controllers and interface IP Cores like MOST MLB, IDE, Serial Uart, Quest Innovations B.V. is capable of supplying a substantial range of IP blocks to customer projects. Because of the high level of different IP blocks into one design, engineers are looking for ready to use blocks, which are reusable and verified in silicon and possibly already used in production units. Therefore Quest has developed its Quest Quality Program. Customers can look at the status and quality of the IP they are interested in. For additional information go to
