inspectAR joins Cadence Design Systems

inspectAR acquired by Cadence Design Systems

Last Updated July 17, 2023

We're very happy to be sharing BIG inspectAR news: We have officially been acquired by Cadence Design Systems, the market leader in Electronic Design Automation software and services. inspectAR will continue to grow and operate independently from our headquarters in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

For the past 1.5 years, inspectAR has been on a tear adding immense value to hardware teams and engineers around the world. We’ve amassed thousands of users, teamed up with some of the biggest names in the industry, and built some of the most innovative technology to really bring a new lens into the hardware development space — and we’re just getting started.

First things first: this deal is very good for inspectAR users. We are going to continue keeping the platform entirely vendor-agnostic, and adding support for even more EDA software and lab tools in the near future. Whether you use Cadence or another EDA tool to design PCB’s, we want to accelerate your hardware development. We now have far more resources to achieve our goals, and a far broader reach to get valuable insight from customers working in every part of the hardware sphere.

We’ve only gotten this far with the support of our families, friends, service providers, employees, and investors. Today, Cadence joins this group, and we couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter of growth and vision.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
