Powai Labs was founded on the banks of Powai Lake, within the IIT Bombay campus. Powai Labs is an entity focused on innovation in the electronics design automation (EDA) space. Its technology is improving the working conditions of design engineers by addressing their pain level issues, in a most cost effective manner; focusing on price, quality and innovation.

It is a pioneering collaboration of Industry, Academia & Government; and the first indigenous EDA company in India; and is rated as the next big thing coming out of India. Starting as a Texas Instruments university funded research program at IIT Bombay, it went on to be incubated by IIT Bombay for commercialization; IIT Bombay much later started the Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE); IIT Bombay now holds equity in Powai Labs through SINE.

Its Simulation Accelerator product, IMAGE is globally the best in price-performance.  IMAGE is a high quality, affordable and robust price-performance Simulation Accelerator.  IMAGE is also available in a range of models for Industry, Research Labs and Higher Technical Education & Research.

Powai Labs works with all the top global Silicon Design Companies, and attracts the best global talent and investors. It works with leading higher technical education institutes, research institutes, research labs and runs high tech education courses. Its learning as an organization makes it a good bridge between Industry, Research and Academia. This brings substantial tangible as well as non-tangible benefits to companies, institutes, universities, research labs and governments with whom they work.
