“We continued to make progress on our System Design Enablement strategy in the third quarter, which resulted in solid financial results,” said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. “Our digital and signoff solutions maintained their momentum with market-shaping customers; five new systems customers, including a major aerospace company, adopted our Palladium Z1 emulation platform; and we increased our expansion into automotive functional safety verification.”
