In joining the Alliance, Ridgetop Group, provider of advanced electronic prognostics and health management (PHM) solutions for electronic systems, semiconductor intellectual property (IP) blocks, and built-in self-test (BIST) solutions for critical applications, noted several initiatives that corresponded with its needs. They include the new Semiconductor IP Working Group to develop common methodology and best practices for IP fingerprinting, the Market Statistics Service (MSS) and the Export Committee that tracks licensing and compliance issues.
“Ridgetop is an impressive company with a portfolio of equally impressive solutions and tools to improve performance and reliability of mission-critical electronic systems for companies in North America, Europe and Asia,” comments Bob Smith, the ESD Alliance’s executive director. “It is with great pleasure that the Alliance welcomes Ridgetop Group.”
Adds Doug Goodman, Ridgetop Group’s president and chief executive officer (CEO): “The ESD Alliance’s expanded mission and charter closely corresponds with Ridgetop’s needs. Companies like ours throughout the Semiconductor design ecosystem need a common voice and committees to represent us. That’s the ESD Alliance’s value.”
