Schematic Integrity Tips

Since our last newsletter, we has been busy performing Schematic Verification (what we call Schematic Integrity Analysis), targeting the early detection of functional and reliability affecting defects in Schematic Designs.

We have put together a brief description of the errors and a short outline of the key culprits causing these errors.

Valydate Featured in OBJ as a Startup to Watch

Recently, the Ottawa Business Journal ran an article noting Valydate as one of the startups to watch this year. As electronics designs get more complex ranging from 100 to 150 pages, manual reviews are simply impossible. Recognizing a demand for automated schematic review tool in the market, Valydate was founded by Mike Alam and Mark Cianfaglione in 2010 to fulfill this gap. Valydate offers a verification process that runs roughly 50 common checks per connection adding up to hundreds of thousands of checks per design. We have been working with top telecom firms as well as those in the defense and aerospace industries; and gradually expanding our customer bases throguh positive referrals. By the end of the quarter, Valydate expects to secure new clients in Montreal, Massachusetts and California. 

Check out the article here to see what Mike has to say about Valydate's achievements and future plans.
