Open-silicon integrates 50 DesignWare interface and analogue IP products with 100 percent silicon success
Article Type: Industry news From: Microelectronics International, Volume 28, Issue 1
Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, have announced that Open-Silicon a leading system-on-chip (SoC) design and semiconductor manufacturing company, has licensed and integrated 50 high speed DesignWare(r) IP products into customers’ chips with 100 percent first-pass silicon success. The IP products include complete solutions consisting of configurable digital controllers, PHYs which support leading process technologies from 180 to 28 nm, verification IP, as well as analogue front ends and data converters. In addition to integrating many of Synopsys’ silicon-proven interface and analogue IP products, Open-Silicon has incorporated building block and infrastructure IP from Synopsys’ DesignWare Library into hundreds of designs. By accessing a broad range of pre-verified IP solutions from a trusted vendor, Open-Silicon has been able to consistently reduce integration and verification risk and shorten development cycles for their complex designs in a wide range of applications such as home networking, enterprise network processors, wireless base-stations, storage controllers and test equipment.
As one of the initial members of the Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program, Open-Silicon has access to the entire Synopsys portfolio of interface and analogue IP solutions. As companies increasingly turn to leading SoC design and semiconductor manufacturing vendors like Open-Silicon to help build their complex SoC designs, Synopsys is proactively partnering with these vendors to provide silicon-proven IP solutions, expert technical support and comprehensive documentation to mitigate project risks. Synopsys and Open-Silicon provide customers with high quality IP and design services that help them bring their products to market faster and with more differentiated features.
