Silicon Catalyst Expands Ecosystem with 4 Additional In-Kind Partners

September 9, 2020 – Silicon Valley - Silicon Catalyst, the world’s only incubator focused exclusively on accelerating solutions in silicon, announced today the expansion of its ecosystem with the addition of four companies to its comprehensive family of In-Kind Partners (IKP). These include:
• DXCorr – Full custom physical design
• Efabless – Configurable open-source SoC design templates
SalesDev.Global – Sales training workshops and coaching
Tessolve – Semiconductor and System Engineering services & solutions provider
Silicon Catalyst has created a unique ecosystem to provide critical support to semiconductor hardware start-ups, including tools and services from a comprehensive network of In-Kind Partners (IKPs) to dramatically reduce the cost of chip development. These Portfolio Companies utilize IKP tools and services including design tools, simulation software, design services, foundry PDK access and MPW runs, test program development, tester access, and banking and legal services. Additionally, the startups can tap into the world-class Silicon Catalyst network of advisors and investors.
“We are very excited to bring on these four new In-Kind Partners to further extend our growing ecosystem. Our Portfolio Companies are developing products for a broad spectrum of market segments and can now take advantage of the wide range of services offered by these partners ranging from IP, design templates, chip design and post silicon technical services as well as sales training workshops,” stated Tarun Verma, Managing Partner at Silicon Catalyst.
In-Kind Partner Details:
DXCorr is the last independent stronghold for the art and craft of full-custom physical design or, as it was once known, semiconductor design. We know that the PPA of physical IP will determine the overall performance of a chip. The final frontier for performance comes from the countless degrees of freedom afforded by physical design — where everything can be optimized down to the shape of a transistor and placement of a wire.

Efabless accelerates the development of new products and initial proof of concepts through a novel solution based on configurable open-source SoC design templates and automated design generation. Non-IC experts use this solution to rapidly, cost-effectively and easily create custom silicon. IC designers use the solution to dramatically reduce cost and time to market for proof of concept of new and exciting ICs. Our model is extendible to advanced packaging, software, subsystems and full systems. Efabless has partnered with a broad range of industry leading companies to develop the Efabless platform, advance open source and open innovation models in electronics and facilitate IC design for novel applications not sufficiently addressed by traditional design business models. Efabless is headquartered in San Jose, CA. For more information, visit
