Visionics Sweden celebrates 30 years of Ideas in Action

Visionics, a subsidiary of Norlinvest Ltd celebrates 30th Anniversary in EDA industry. At this moment, we thank all our customers who supported us and wish to receive the support in future also. We are fortunate to have a diverse group of clients who always keep us engaged and push us to deliver what is needed.
The History of Visionics dates back to 1983, when we introduced the first EDA package - The CAD ABC,which gained a lot of prominence. Over the years, we have been continuously introducing new EDA packages like CAD 1000, Comp CAD and the EE Designer series and has won many international awards. EDWinXP (PCB Designing and SPICE-based software) is the main product of Visionics. With its Principal office at Stockholm, Sweden, the company also has development centres in Russia, Estonia, and Japan.
In our customer list we have companies like Volvo, Ericsson, Bofors, GE, FCC (Federal Communications Commission) – USA and Universities in Sweden, UK, USA, Malaysia, Columbia and several Engineering colleges in India. Our latest product EDWinXP 1.90 download version comes with all features of EDWinXP including EDSpice Simulator and Full Libraries.
As part of our 30th Anniversary, we are offering a 70% special discount for our products(EDWinXP Commercial &EDWinXP Non commercial Professional & Upgrades of both). Our Vision is to create the best PC-based EDA systems and attain high level of customer satisfaction.We hope to celebrate with each and every one of you this important milestone in our history. And we especially look forward to, and will work hard to achieve, another 30 years of success.
