Vendor Testimonials

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Shared EDA so that they can provide the benefits of the ANSYS Startup Program to eligible startups within their membership portfolio.

ANSYS’ simulation tools can have a tremendous positive impact for a startup performing electronics design.Whether an engineer is interested in electronics cooling, mechanical vibration or thermal performance, or RF and signal integrity concerns, employing simulation early – at the concept and design stages – can save a startup considerable time and money. By iterating, enhancing and making mistakes in the virtual world of simulation, engineers decrease the cost, time and risk associated with physical prototypes.

The ANSYS Startup Program exists to provide eligible, early-stage startups affordable access to our industry-leading engineering simulation software to grow their businesses quickly and cost-effectively. The ANSYS Startup Program’s mission aligns with Shared EDA’s ultimate goal of helping independent companies access software tools that are often used by larger corporations.

This collaboration is a win-win-win. It provides growth for the ANSYS Startup Program, benefits Shared EDA’s eligible members and provides qualified startups with access to the world-class simulation tools used by 97 of the top 100 industrial companies on the Fortune 500 list.”

“We wanted to be part of the Shared EDA ‘sparkle’ from the outset.  We are very pleased we took the step to help the special collective of SME’s find a competitive edge in an ultra-competitive world.

Mentor took the unusual step to find a contractual model to support multiple, independent companies share licenses of its EDA software. Share EDA’s structure offers a framework to efficiently administer a large volume of software packages more normally deployed by larger organizations. Shared EDA presented a viable platform for revenue growth for Mentor Graphics which was essential in establishing a commercial model.

The outcome is that Shared EDA member companies have access to a wider range of products and a higher volume of software licenses – especially important during bursts of peak usage. These resources give them best-in-class software to create innovative, optimal designs more effectively.

And of course the solution is commercially advantageous to the Shared EDA members.”
