Genedax’s Design Collaboration (DECO) for chip designers allowed geographically dispersed teams to work together more effectively. The suite of products provided integrated Microsoft Project, Team Manager, and Visual Source Safe products with an EDA design environment that simplified project management and coordination efforts.
Genedax also published Fatchip, a web-based marketplace for companies with chip design and verification projects to connect with highly skilled engineering consultants. This model allowed companies to hire the best person for the project but not have to keep them as a full-time employee. It also allowed engineers with highly specialized skills to stay focused in that area and command a premium for their work.
