On the EDA technology side, Vtool has invented, developed, and deploys Cogita, a novel AI/ML-based verification debugging and data analysis platform. On the services side, Vtool’s expertise spans from specification to GDSII top-notch ASIC services, embedded software, and Analog and RF circuit design. The Israeli-headquartered company already runs leading design centers in Serbia, Poland, and Greece, and now also in India and the UK.
