The amount Synopsys paid has not been disclosed but described as "not material to Synopsys financials."
GSS was founded in 2010 by Professor Asen Asenov, James Watt Chair in Electrical Engineering in the College of Science and Engineering, with £720,000 (about $950,000) seed funding and support from Scottish Enterprise. GSS specialises in predictive physical simulation of performance and atomic-scale transistor variability, and statistical “compact” models for circuit simulation.
The GSS team, which will be incorporated into the Synopsys technology CAD group and will remain in Scotland, provides jobs for University of Glasgow PhD students and former post-doctoral research Associates, said Professor Asenov, in a statement issued by Glasgow University.
