About Us


Helic of Santa Clara, Calif., develops and markets Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software that mitigates the risk of electromagnetic crosstalk in System on Chip (SoC) Designs. Since 2000, Helic cutting-edge technology enables analog/RF and high-frequency IC design engineers to synthesize inductive devices and model electromagnetic and parasitic phenomena with accuracy, speed and seamless design flow interoperability.

In the last few years, as frequency, bandwidth and level of integration continued to escalate, Helic tools have been successfully used by top semiconductor companies to debug and analyze electromagnetic crosstalk issues in their advanced SOC designs.

Our products are particularly suited for the intricacies that come with designing integrated circuits for Wireless Communications, Internet of Things (IoT), Computing, Automotive, and high-speed Networking. With Helic, engineers can design devices in all advanced nodes, optimize the die size, and capture with precision electromagnetic and parasitic effects from DC up to 110GHz.

The Helic product family includes: VeloceRF, an inductive device compiler and modeling tool which provides DRC clean devices for as low as 10nm geometries; RaptorX, a pre-LVS electromagnetic modeling tool with unprecedented capacity to handle simulation for highly complex circuits; and Exalto, a post-LVS RLCk extraction tool that captures unknown crosstalk including electrical, magnetic and substrate coupling.
Helic is a subsidiary of ANSYS Inc.
