March 31, 2011 – Marketwire — Coventor Inc., software supplier for developing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), expanded its reach in two key geographies with the opening of a new office in Italy, and a new distribution agreement in China.
The expansion positions Coventor to leverage the continued growth of the MEMS market and meet the need for more sophisticated design solutions in the development of MEMS-enabled products.
Sondra Di Sabatino, who has more than 20 years experience in the CAE industry, will head up Coventor’s sales and business developments efforts for Southern Europe and Israel. The office complements the company’s existing operations in Paris. She joins Coventor from Ansoft, where she worked for 13 years and supported key accounts in the semiconductor, automotive and defense industries, as well as major national research organizations. She has also worked at MSC Software, a provider of tools for electro-mechanical design.
In China, Coventor has signed an agreement with AONESOFT to develop and support its customer base in the central and southern regions of the country. The company, based in Wuhan, has 21 employees with deep technical and sales expertise and a strong track record with large commercial and academic enterprises in this area. AONESOFT has helped expand software and hardware sales in this region for MSC, Tektronix, Agilent and Zuken and other leading companies.
"As MEMS devices become more complex and further integrated with traditional electronics systems, we have seen a strong demand in these regions for the type of design platform Coventor offers," said Tom Flynn, VP of sales and business development at Coventor. "This expansion using highly qualified resources fits nicely into our global strategy to help address the toughest MEMS design challenges with a robust design platform."
Coventor Inc. provides automated design solutions for micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and virtual fabrication of MEMS and semiconductor devices. Coventor serves a worldwide customer base of integrated device manufacturers, fabless design houses, independent foundries, and R&D organizations that develop MEMS-based products for automotive, aerospace, industrial, defense, and consumer electronics applications, including smart phones, tablets, and gaming systems.
