PALO ALTO, Calif. & COVENTRY, England & MUNICH--(CyDesign Labs, Inc., the developer of the CyDesign platform for model-based design optimization, announced today the acquisition of deltatheta UK Limited, a technology leader in Modelica-based modeling and simulation tools. The acquisition was announced at the 9th International Modelica Conference held in Munich, Germany.)--
“This is welcome news for systems engineers working on conceptual designs for advanced cyber-electromechanical systems”
CyDesign will provide engineers with a unified suite of tools to better manage the rapidly increasing complexity of industrial systems design. The CyDesign platform includes a complete range of integrated systems engineering functions including requirements management, model libraries, simulation, verification and certification. The CyDesign platform will be commercially available in 2013.
“This is welcome news for systems engineers working on conceptual designs for advanced cyber-electromechanical systems,” said CyDesign Labs Founder and CEO Serdar Uckun. “The Modelica modeling language has enjoyed strong adoption within engineering communities across automotive, aerospace and other industries. deltatheta’s technology is well respected in these communities, and it provides a robust, proven modeling engine for CyDesign. CyDesign is pleased to establish its European headquarters in Coventry, UK, an important center for automotive design, technology, and manufacturing.”
The deltatheta acquisition complements CyDesign’s unique cloud-based solution set. This will be the industry’s first complete cloud-based, web-accessible simulation and modeling environment. CyDesign will provide engineers with a simple usage fee structure for access to all its rich design and system engineering capabilities without the restrictions of traditional licenses.
“The integration of deltatheta’s Modelica-based technologies with the CyDesign platform provides an end-to-end design environment for systems engineers in the conceptual design phase,” said Peter Harman, director of deltatheta UK Limited. “For the first time, systems engineers will be able to simulate a complete set of design configurations and dynamically visualize the impact against requirements. Additionally, CyDesign’s cloud-based infrastructure affords unlimited computational capacity, which will dramatically reduce the time required to perform complicated, multi-parametric simulations in Modelica.”
Coventry-based deltatheta UK Limited has been renamed CyDesign Limited. Research and development initiatives centered around Modelica tools will be expanded in CyDesign Limited’s Coventry, UK offices.
About CyDesign Labs, Inc.
CyDesign is developing a physics-based modeling system that enables systems engineers to quickly assess design options against requirements during the conceptual design stage. The CyDesign platform helps engineers gather requirements, link them to system designs, explore the trade space of design alternatives, assess the viability of these alternatives, and provide objective guidance resulting in a much better final product. Privately-held CyDesign Labs has 28 employees in its Palo Alto, CA, USA headquarters and its offices in Coventry, UK. For more information about CyDesign visit www.cydesign.com.
