Finnish Acquisition

Applied Wave Research recently acquired Finnish company APLAC Solutions, developers of simulation and analysis software for analog and radio-frequency (RF) design.

APLAC's RF design technology, used by Nokia, has been designed into about 30% of all mobile-phone RF ICs worldwide, says the company

The merger of the two electronic-design-automation software developers was driven by key customer demand for APLAC's high-performance, foundryapproved, circuit simulation strength combined with the open, integrated Applied Wave Research Design Environment technology.
