GRENOBLE, FRANCE & SAN JOSE, USA: Docea Power SAS, the design-for-low-power company that delivers software solutions for power and thermal analysis at the architectural level, today officially announced the opening of its US office in San Jose, CA and the incorporation of Docea Power Inc., a fully-owned subsidiary of Docea Power. The company also announced today that Ghislain Kaiser, Docea Power co-founder and CEO will head up the US operations as Docea Inc. president.
“We see our Silicon Valley office as a key milestone in our strategy to grow globally and an opportunity to better serve our customers in North America,” said Ghislain Kaiser. ”We are eager to establish our company in the creative Silicon Valley community and start our US operations to address the needs of our growing customer base. Anchoring Docea Power in the US ecosystem is key to our success as a company.”
“Faced with tremendous power consumption and heat dissipation challenges in complex SoC, (System on Chips), SiP (Systems in Package) and electronic boards, US customers are using our flagship product Aceplorer not only to explore architectures, low power strategies, use case profiling and systems dimensioning for a higher impact on power consumption, but also to speed up power management software validation and debug against a dynamic power profile,” noted Sylvian Kaiser, CTO, Docea Power. ”Being close to an important innovation center, such as the Bay Area, helps us improve our solutions to match customers’ needs.”
“This is not our first footprint in the US where we have been working with US-based customers and with EdaTechForce LLC as a distributor to support the growing demand for dedicated architectural power solutions,” added Ridha Hamza, director of Sales and Marketing, Docea Power. “Our new office enables us to expand the company’s customer base, strengthen the company’s already solid customer engagements in the US and reinforce the cooperation with our distributors by providing them with closer technical and marketing support to benefit our customers.”
Ghislain Kaiser, Docea Power CEO, co-founded Docea in 2006 with his brother Sylvian Kaiser, CTO, to develop solutions for analyzing and optimizing energy and thermal behavior while taking into account the consumption-temperature interdependencies far upstream in the design cycle where energy gains can reach 70 percent.
Prior to founding Docea, Ghislain worked at STMicroelectronics where he gained an extensive background in international projects as power management expert for wireless and consumer market segments.
Headquartered in Grenoble's micro- and nanotechnology and embedded software innovation ecosystem, Docea shares a common lab with CEA-LETI on 3D IC and partners with other public research centers on advanced R&D programs. Recently, Docea Power joined the Synopsys System-Level Catalyst program to ensure the interoperability of its Aceplorer tool with Synopsys ESL solutions.
