We have been investigating the market thoroughly in order to choose the right tool that fits into our portfolio and serves our client base best. With Valor Process Preparation we are convinced that we are providing the most beneficial tool available. The necessary requirements for us were finding a tool that is easy to deploy and use, is scalable and provides a smart investment, with a company that can establish a reliable, long-term arrangement. We have found all this with Valor Process Preparation.

We consider it the right step with a low entry barrier into the digital world. Our customers can grow this, at their own pace, into a fully digital factory, if they choose to. All modules work hand-in-hand. The entry package goes way beyond a simple tool for CAD data conversion, rather it can be seen as a simulation tool which reduces waste of microelectronic parts right from the start of the design process with a resultant yield realized.
