CréVinn Teoranta was founded in May 2002 with a core engineering Team from 3Com’s Silicon Design Group. The Team has been together in its current offices at Manor House, Spiddal since 1998 when 3Com opened its Silicon Design Centre in Galway.
CréVinn has been greatly assisted by Údaras na Gaeltachta who provided grants and other invaluable assistance, and by the IDA who were instrumental in assisting the transition of the team from 3Com.
CréVinn received initial investments in 2002 from the Western Development Commission (WDC) which was key to enabling the start-up of its Consultancy and Design Service activities. A second investment by the WDC in 2005 supported the expansion of CréVinn’s IP development program.
In March 2005, CréVinn opened a second design centre in Dublin to help further enable the company to grow as demand for our IP and Services continued.
The Directors and founders, Tadhg Creedon and Vincent Gavin, with strong ASIC-based product development backgrounds in DEC and 3Com, founded CréVinn in mid-2002 to bring their expertise directly to world markets. With Tadhg and Vincent’s experience in developing key technology within world-leading multi-national companies, customers will benefit from their understanding of product-development processes targeted at global markets.
CréVinn had formed an excellent team of silicon designers and verification experts, who have worked together in developing and verifying many complex and successful ASICs and FPGAs over the years, initially at 3Com and now at CréVinn. The expertise of this team is such that CréVinn can provide a top-class consultancy service backed up by the ability to deliver high quality design and verification services.
The Fletcher Design Methodology used by the Team creates an environment for excellent team synergy providing our customers with structured design of high integrity, yet with exceptional design turn-around times.
Apart from being derived from the names of the founders, CréVinn has a relevant meaning when examined as a combination of Irish words:
Cré: meaning Earth, and Bhinn: meaning Sweet.
For CréVinn, involved in the Silicon Design Market, Silicon is the Sweet Earth!
