Sigasi (pronunciation: /sɪ'ɡæsɪ/) was founded in 2008 because the two founders felt a need for new and better tools for VHDL design. In May 2009, they released a beta version of their Intelligent Development Environment (IDE) for VHDL. This tool brings the power of well known IDEs like Eclipse and Visual Studio to the hardware designer. Since the product launch in January 2010, it has been sold worldwide, in a wide range of industries, including consumer electronics, automotive and aerospace.
In June 2010, Sigasi closed its first funding round. Key investors were Baekeland Fund II, the entrepreneurial team, and Business Angels. Also, the Flemish government provided subsidies through the IWT.
With its core technology built on the Eclipse platform, Sigasi is a proud Eclipse Foundation member.
