Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) announced today that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Future Facilities, a leading provider of electronics cooling analysis and energy performance optimization solutions for data center design and operations using physics-based 3D digital twins. The addition of Future Facilities’ technologies and expertise supports the Cadence® Intelligent System Design™ strategy and enables companies to make informed business decisions about data center design, operations and lifecycle management that reduce their carbon footprint.
Future Facilities’ product portfolio includes an electronics thermal solution that augments Cadence’s leading Celsius™ Thermal Solver, as well as innovative computational fluid dynamics (CFD) electronics cooling simulation technology that optimizes the performance and cooling efficiency of power-hungry data centers. Our technology virtualizes the data center ecosystem, creating a 3D digital twin that allows operators to predict, visualize and quantify the impact of any change in the data center prior to implementation and during operations. This allows customers to optimize business goals with facility design and operational efficiencies. Future Facilities’ proven technologies are used by leading hyperscale, enterprise data center, managed services and colocation providers.
Hassan Moezzi, founder and CEO of Future Facilities said, “We are excited to join the Cadence team and look forward to combining our data center and electronics technology solutions with Cadence’s expertise in Intelligent System Design to further advance performance, sustainability and energy efficiency from chip design to all elements of the data center right up to the chillers that are critical components in data center design and operations.”
Tom Beckley, senior vice president and general manager of the Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence said, “The acquisition of Future Facilities boosts our Fidelity CFD solution with digital twin solutions, including electronics cooling and energy management that helps businesses maximize capacity, improve energy efficiency, reduce costs and mitigate critical infrastructure risk.”
