Carbon Design Systems Expands in Japan with Subsidiary, Sales Office

1/24/2006 - Carbon Design Systems, a leader in virtual system prototyping, announced that it has established a Japanese subsidiary and has opened a direct sales office in Tokyo. Carbon Design Systems Japan K.K., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carbon Design Systems, will support Carbon's growing customer base in Japan and expand its sales channel capacity. Carbon's mainstay VSPTM product line, coupled with the introduction of its SOC-VSPTM product, has fueled the demand for a local presence.

"Carbon's products have the capacity, performance, and hardware accuracy required to validate the most demanding SoC designs, including the hardware and software content," explained Atsushi Ishii, President of Carbon Design Systems Japan K.K. "We have many opportunities to proliferate VSP in the Japanese market, including consumer electronics, communication, and multi-media companies. The recently announced SOC-VSP rounds out the product line by enabling a complete validation solution for ARM®-based SoCs that are prevalent in consumer electronics."

"Investing in Japan was an easy decision. It not only broadens our major account sales coverage, but also allows us to provide local customer support to a growing user base. It is strategically important for Carbon to have close ties with many Japanese electronic design firms to drive our product development," stated Steve Butler, President and CEO at Carbon Design Systems. "Our seasoned team in Tokyo will keep our momentum going while tailoring our offering for the Japanese market."
