Having nightmares over Verification? Think you will be a grandfather by the time it’s over? Think you will spend your last penny in verification? If you have answered yes to one of the above then think E-Infochips - The verification experts from Gujarat, India.

Tucked away amidst the huge industries of Ahmedabad, Gujarat; eInfochips a provider of ASIC design services, embedded systems solutions and IP cores to global blue-chip technology companies has been quietly making its mark globally. Pratul Shroff founded eInfochips in 1995 with one office, one engineer and rupees 5.5 lakhs. Today the company has grown to 275 employees in Ahmedabad, India and California, USA.

eInfochips provides a one-stop solution for chip design and verification. With ongoing IP development program for design as well as verification IP eInfochips has developed several reusable IP cores that can be rapidly integrated into designs to develop a complete solution.

eInfochips claims that VeriSuite, a complete solution for chip verification, enables rapid building of verification environments for complex, multimillion gate System-on-Chip verification, thereby shortening the verification cycle and saving on development cost. They help build highly scalable verification environments for module and SoC level verification, providing maximum functional coverage. According to eInfochips the principal benefits of VeriSuite includes configurable, scalable verification environment, functional, coverage driven verification and layered, object oriented architecture.

In the late 90’s while the world focused on Y2K and COBOL, Shroff moved away from the trend to focus on embedded systems. “We focused on verification because that’s where the market traction is. We add value by developing a verification sub-system or verification IP,” he says.
