Fund III New Investment: Celera

Celera logoCelera is an AI-driven software platform that automates the design of analog semiconductor chips.

Celera’s solution automates the analog chip design process, including IP and modeling, synthesis, verification, and layout. It reduces development time from 18 months to weeks and production time from years to months. Celera is building a cloud-based SaaS platform that uses its vast library of design building blocks to analyze customer input requirements and output a finished and optimized chip design ready for fabrication and testing.

We’re excited to partner with Erik Soule and his team as they streamline analog chip design. Welcome to the Augment Family!

Erik Soule, CEO of Celera:
“Celera was founded by a team of highly experienced analog / mixed-signal IC engineers from Silicon Valley that said ‘there has to be a better way’ to design analog chips. The company is democratizing analog IC design, allowing system-level engineers to create their own custom silicon. This new approach will massively improve the design productivity of a $500B+ market.”
