Intel Invests in Disruptive EDA Company?

Intel Capital Invests $132 Million in 11 Disruptive Technology Startups

I missed it on the first read but included with all of the disruptive investments is a well established EDA company:

ProPlus Electronics(Shandong, China) is an electronic design automation (“EDA”) company, specializing in advanced device modeling and fast circuit simulation solutions. ProPlus helps to close the divide between design and manufacturing with software that makes chip design faster and fabrication yields higher, allowing the semiconductor industry to create more powerful and diverse products.

I need to dig into this a little more but I'm guessing this is an interesting story. ProPlus is no spring chicken (founded in 2006), has a focused set of capabilities, and is based in China. If anybody else knows more please share......
