SpiraTech Ltd., a U.K.-based EDA startup preparing tools for electronic system level (ESL) design, has won around $1 million in initial venture capital funding and has appointed three technology veterans to the company's board.

The funding will be used to expand the company's customer base.

SpiraTech developed the proprietary CY language and a supporting toolset, including a CY simulator. CY is a C-style language that claims a high level of abstraction, along with ease of use. The company's founders previously developed languages and tools for Fujitsu's International Computers Ltd. (ICL) subsidiary.

David Stewart, CEO of CriticalBlue and a former Cadence Design Systems executive, has joined the SpiraTech board as non-executive chairman. Chris Rose, co-founder of the U.K.-based EDA software distributor Saros, has joined as a non-executive director. Simon Calder, previously with LSI Logic and MMC Networks, has joined SpiraTech as VP of sales and marketing.
