AMIQ Celebrates 20 Successful Years in Semiconductor Design and Verification

June 29, 2023, Bucharest, Romania - AMIQ, an established leader in verification services and electronic design automation (EDA) solutions for semiconductor development, today announced that it has reached the key milestone of 20 successful years in the industry. With its complementary business units AMIQ Consulting and AMIQ EDA, the company has helped thousands of engineers worldwide develop some of the most advanced chips available and achieve first-silicon success.

AMIQ was founded in Bucharest, Romania in 2003 as a high-quality verification services company by engineers Cristian Amitroaie, Stefan Birman, and Adrian Simionescu. Their real-world project experience and deep knowledge of the hardware design verification domain, languages, methodologies, and tools helped many companies deliver complex designs on time and within budget. Industries such as automotive, telecommunications, and computers and peripherals have benefitted from their services.

“We started AMIQ to help our customers be successful, to work with the best talent, and to give something back to our community,” said Stefan Birman, CEO of AMIQ Consulting. “Along the way, we developed internal tools as needed to help us write better verification code and allow us to focus on finding bugs in customer designs. One of these was an integrated development environment (IDE) for hardware design and verification languages, a novel and innovative idea in 2005.”

The AMIQ EDA business unit was established in 2008 to make Design and Verification Tools (DVT) Eclipse IDE available for worldwide customer use. This solution was already production-proven on consulting projects to help engineers develop new code on tight schedules, understand legacy or poorly documented code, and get new engineers up to speed quickly. For the first time, it made the benefits of an IDE available not just to software programmers, but to hardware design and verification engineers as well.

“After an extended Beta test period with positive feedback from users, we were certain that DVT Eclipse IDE would be a success,” said Cristian Amitroaie, CEO of AMIQ EDA. “Our customers often say that they could not imagine developing code without it. We have since expanded our solutions to include DVT IDE for Visual Studio (VS) Code, DVT Debugger, Verissimo SystemVerilog Linter, and Specador Documentation Generator. All of them have also received high praise and been successful products.”

AMIQ EDA will be exhibiting in Booth 1326 at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco’s Moscone Center July 10-12 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Representative will be available to discuss both EDA solutions and consulting services. For more information on the conference, visit
