GateRocket is on a roll after raising another $3M last week in VC funding.

Dave Orecchio is the CEO and I remember working for him at Viewlogic in the hey-days of the 90’s.

This company is focused on helping FGPA designers that need to speed up their verification and debug cycles for big designs.

RocketDrive is a hardware box that speeds up your HDL simulations.


With FPGA design starts dominating our world of IC design I hope that GateRocket can grow into a strong EDA vendor.

From a post on I read that Dave is offering a $1,000 referral bonus for a new position they have in SW develoment.
