S2C has offices and sales representatives in the US, Europe, Israel, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.
Founded in 2018 and jointly owned and managed by SMIT Group, Shenzhen Giga Design Automation Co., Ltd. is a high-tech company engaged in the R&D of EDA back-end design software. It is committed to the R&D, production and sales of domestic digital integrated circuit electronic design automation (“EDA”). It mainly researches and develops Place and Route tools, completes the technical deployment of key nodes for digital integrated circuit EDA platform, and realizes the technical breakthrough of the state-owned semiconductor industry chain in this key link. Its products have been approved and applied by many heading enterprises.
Also established in 2018, SMIT Systemic (HK) Limited is R&D division of SMIT Group in Hong Kong. It bridges foreign cooperation by using Hong Kong's scientific research forces and mainly develops logic synthesis which is one of the most important tools in digital IC design. Meanwhile, it attracts talents from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and co-develop with HKUST(“The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology”) and CUHK(“The Chinese University of Hong Kong”).
SMIT Group cooperated with Xidian University to set up "Xidian-SMIT EDA Research Institute" to cultivate EDA talents, and the cooperation with the universities in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is also in process.
SMIT Group will adhere to the strategy of integrating independent research and development, absorption the introduction, with production, teaching, research, investment and mergers, so as to deploy in the EDA field comprehensively and build up domestic controllable digital full-process EDA.
SMIT Group will keep integrated circuit as the core business, take security and application as the grip to diversify its business, promote the development of domestic integrated circuit industry and improve the supply chain, make chip design more convenient and information life more secure.
