  GRENOBLE, FRANCE and SAN JOSE, CA, Jun 06 (MARKET
WIRE) -- 
Docea Power SAS, the design-for-low-power company that delivers software
solutions for power and thermal analysis at the architectural level,
today officially announced the opening of its U.S. office in San Jose, CA
and the incorporation of Docea Power Inc., a fully-owned subsidiary of
Docea Power. The company also announced today that Ghislain Kaiser, Docea
Power co-founder and CEO, will head up the U.S. operations as Docea Inc.
President. 

    "We see our Silicon Valley office as a key milestone in our strategy to
grow globally and an opportunity to better serve our customers in North
America," said Ghislain Kaiser. "We are eager to establish our company in
the creative Silicon Valley community and start our U.S. operations to
address the needs of our growing customer base. Anchoring Docea Power in
the U.S. ecosystem is key to our success as a company." 

    "Faced with tremendous power consumption and heat dissipation challenges
in complex SoC, (System on Chips), SiP (Systems in Package) and
electronic boards, U.S. customers are using our flagship product
Aceplorer not only to explore architectures, low power strategies, use
case profiling and systems dimensioning for a higher impact on power
consumption, but also to speed up power management software validation
and debug against a dynamic power profile," noted Sylvian Kaiser, CTO,
Docea Power. "Being close to an important innovation center, such as the
Bay Area, helps us improve our solutions to match customers' needs."

    "This is not our first footprint in the U.S. where we have been working
with U.S.-based customers and with EdaTechForce LLC as a distributor to
support the growing demand for dedicated architectural power solutions,"
added Ridha Hamza, Director of Sales and Marketing, Docea Power. "Our new
office enables us to expand the company's customer base, strengthen the
company's already solid customer engagements in the U.S. and reinforce
the cooperation with our distributors by providing them with closer
technical and marketing support to benefit our customers."

    Ghislain Kaiser, Docea Power CEO, co-founded Docea in 2006 with his
brother Sylvian Kaiser, CTO, to develop solutions for analyzing and
optimizing energy and thermal behavior while taking into account the
consumption-temperature interdependencies far upstream in the design
cycle where energy gains can reach 70%. Prior to founding Docea, Ghislain
worked at STMicroelectronics where he gained an extensive background in
international projects as power management expert for wireless and
consumer market segments. 

    Headquartered in Grenoble's micro- and nanotechnology and embedded
software innovation ecosystem, Docea shares a common lab with CEA-LETI on
3D IC and partners with other public research centers on advanced R&D
programs. Recently, Docea Power joined the Synopsys System-Level Catalyst
program to ensure the interoperability of its Aceplorer tool with
Synopsys ESL solutions.
