Synapse Design Tapes Out 33 SOCs in 12 Months

Design Centers in the U.S., Europe, India, China and Taiwan Participate in Creating SOCs

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Synapse Design today announced that, together with its top tier semiconductor and systems customers, the Company has taped out 33 SOCs in 12 months and 20 SOCs in the first six months of 2014. These SOCs address applications in the automotive, multimedia, mobile, data storage, networking and Internet-of-Things (IoT) markets.

The 33rd SOC is a 200 sq. mm die developed for the networking market. This complex SOC design includes more than 30 blocks; digital, analog and mixed signal content; and has a 1Ghz high-speed interface.

"Our ability to complete so many designs is a testament to our talented, experienced engineering staff together with our proprietary automated flow, tools and IP that are responsible for our 'zero respin' success for the past several years," said Satish Bagalkotkar, co-founder, CEO and president. "Our customers look to us to partner in their product success and advise not only on current projects but on derivative products and next-generation products."

As process technology has advanced to new challenging nodes and SOC complexity grows, Synapse Design has experienced a trend toward client demands for an increasing level of Synapse Design engineering involvement. In over 30 percent of the tapeouts during the past year, Synapse Design has delivered complete turnkey services from RTL to GDSII. In 40 percent of the tapeouts, Synapse Design provided more than 50 percent of the design implementation work. In the final 30 percent of design projects, the Company provided customers with additional resources allowing them to easily expand resources for pressing projects.

"Many of the largest semiconductor and system companies will generate fewer than a handful of new IC designs each year, while we work on dozens," said Devesh Gautam, co-founder and COO. "This continuous high-volume work flow allows us to constantly improve our products, processes and successful results. This provides us and our customers with a tremendous advantage over the typically small design services houses."

Synapse Design has more than 700 engineers solving SOC and ASIC challenges, including analog mixed-signal content, advanced process nodes including FinFET, hardening ARM cores for Power-Performance-Area (PPA) advantage and creating embedded software, including domain-specific software. With seven designs centers across the globe, customers have access to "best location/best related expertise" resources.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
