Oasys Design Appoints New CEO
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Oasys Design Systems, the chip synthesis company, announced today that
industry veteran Scott Seaton has been named the company's President and
CEO. Mr. Seaton was also appointed a director of the company. Mr. Seaton
succeeds founder Paul van Besouw who will become the company's CTO and
Chairman of its board of directors.
"Oasys RealTime Designer's massive RTL capacity and breakthrough
performance enables optimization at the top level of today's most
complex designs which allows designers to find timing, power, area, and
routability problems before physical design. The result is a dramatic
reduction in design iterations for design closure, providing important
time-to-market savings over existing synthesis tools that are limited to
block-level optimization. Oasys RealTime Designer is in production use
at several of the top 10 semiconductor firms and our customers have
successfully taped out designs at the 28nm process node," said van
Besouw. "Scott's extensive EDA business experience taking start-up
companies to the next level will help Oasys scale and lead us into our
next phase of growt."
Mr. Seaton is an EDA veteran with more than 30 years of experience in
sales, marketing and executive management. Most recently Mr. Seaton was
VP of Sales and Marketing at Carbon Design Systems where he helped
transform the company into a market leader in system level design.
Previously, Mr. Seaton was the VP of Worldwide Sales at Enkoo, an SSL
VPN networking appliance company that was acquired by Sonicwall. Earlier
Mr. Seaton was President and CEO of LIstenpoint, a venture-backed
enterprise software company. Mr. Seaton began his EDA career as VP of
Channel Sales at Viewlogic.
"I am excited about the dramatic value in time-to-market savings our
customers are seeing with Oasys RealTime Designer over their existing
RTL synthesis tools," stated Mr. Seaton. "As Moore's law continues to
enable ever more complex designs, customers are finding that their
existing RTL design flows, built upon RTL synthesis technology that was
architected 25 years ago, can no longer solve their timing, power, area,
and routability problems. This creates a great opportunity for Oasys to
leverage its breakthrough optimization and physical synthesis
