Dassault Systemes acquires Geensoft's embedded systems development tools expertise
23 June 2010
Dassault Systemes has acquired Geensoft, a provider of embedded systems development tools, for 5.5 million Euros. With this acquisition, the DS V6 portfolio now has the capacity to model and generate an entire vehicle control software system, allowing a validation loop by connecting the physical equipment with the digital mock up.
“I am delighted to have Geensoft’s team of experts join Dassault Systèmes,” said Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, Products, Research & Development, Dassault Systèmes. “Together we will make the virtual product closer to the real world.”
DS’s V6 PLM platform now delivers a collaborative environment that will bring together multiple systems engineering disciplines, working with literally hundreds of disconnected domain specific tools.
DS has also announced the availability of an open, online community accessible through DraftSight.com, aimed at providing all computer-aided design (CAD) users access to new services and products to unlock valuable data stored in billions of DWG files. The launch of this community comes as a direct result of customer demand and marks the next step in bringing DWG file management and storage into an easy-to-use, online, service-oriented environment.
DS is also launching the DraftSight solution, a free, professional-grade 2D CAD product delivered using an open business model. Currently in public beta and available for download at 3ds.com, DraftSight provides users with a better way to read, write and share DWG files. Based on an advanced architecture, DraftSight is easy to use, generally takes only a few minutes to download and runs on multiple operating systems including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (Mac OS and Linux support will be available later this year). DraftSight is available for all users, including CAD professionals, students and educators.
