DAFCA, Inc. is an EDA software company focused on post-silicon validation, debug, and in-system bring-up of integrated circuits. DAFCA's tools allow design teams to incorporate patented and compact reconfigurable instrumentation IP into their devices, pre-silicon, in order to observe, discover, and diagnose at-speed, in-silicon functional behavior.
DAFCA is based in Framingham, Massachusetts.
The acronym DAFCA originally stood for Design Automation for Flexible Chip Architecture, but the long form is vestigial. The company was founded by Peter Levin and Miron Abramovici.
