Monozukuri (MZ Technologies) is an innovative privately held EDA company headquartered in Rome. It has been founded in 2014 by silicon executives with extensive know-how and experience in IC, packaging and EDA solutions, supported by Italian private and institutional investors.
In 2015 we started the R&D team in Rome and the software development team in Armenia.
The company has been funded twice by the European Commission, within the Horizon2020 – SME Instrument, phase 1 & 2.
MZ Technologies is the marketing brand of Monozukuri S.p.A. The parent opened for business in Rome, Italy with an initial capital of € 3.5 million in R&D. Since we first opened our doors, our singular focus has been shrinking the time-to-design of complex chiplet and package co-design challenges. Our mission is to envision, develop and deliver software automated tools and technology that transform the next generation of vertically stacked, modularly packaged integrated circuits designs into commercial successes through superior time-to-market and yield-to-volume efficiencies.
I’m happy to say that we’re making good progress toward achieving the objective we set eight years ago with the introduction of the industry’s first, fully integrated IC/Packing Co-Design EDA tool. To date, we’ve proven the validity of our technology and successfully generated revenue in both Asia and Europe, so now it makes sense for us to bring our expertise to North America.
Right now, we’re engaging with companies through our representation in Europe and Israel while we open up representation here in North America. We usually initiate every engagement with an initial presentation and demo of GENIO. We then move to installing a demon on the customer premises for non-production purposes. Alternatively, we can run proof-of-concept on customer test cases at our facility. The final step is annual subscription, full GENIO installation that includes support, maintenance and wiki-like users’ manual and tutorials.
