Synopsys and Arm Extend Collaboration to Improve Power, Performance, and Time to Results for Arm's Latest IP and Synopsys Tools

Design and Verification Solutions to be Shared at Worldwide Arm-Synopsys Workshops

CAMBRIDGE, England and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Highlights:

  • Multi-year subscription agreement expands Synopsys' early access to Arm® Cortex® processors for the Armv8-A, Armv7-A architectures, Arm Mali GPUs, Arm CoreLink system IP, Arm Artisan® physical IP, and Arm POP IP
  • Agreement spans all Synopsys tools, including Synopsys Design Platform with Fusion Technology, Verification Continuum Platform, and Software Integrity Platform
  • Worldwide workshops to kick off in Tokyo and highlight results of Arm-Synopsys collaboration

Arm and Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) have extended their collaboration and signed a multi-year subscription agreement expanding Synopsys' access to a broad range of Arm intellectual property (IP) to enable optimization of Synopsys tools and methodologies for Arm-based system-on-chips (SoCs). The companies will share the results of their collaboration for design and verification enabled by this and previous IP subscription agreements at worldwide workshops beginning on April 25, 2018, in Tokyo, Japan.

Through this agreement, Synopsys has early access to Arm Cortex CPUs, Mali GPUs, CoreLink system IP, Artisan physical IP, and POP IP. Building on more than 25 years of collaboration, this new agreement allows Synopsys to further optimize its tools and design flows for Arm-based SoCs, enabling designers to meet their power, performance and area (PPA) goals, while reducing cost and time-to-market.

"We have worked closely with Synopsys for more than 25 years to ensure our mutual customers can get products to market quickly and still meet their power, performance, and area targets," said Rene Haas, executive vice president and president, IP Products Group, Arm. "Through these ongoing collaborations, we can continue to provide the ecosystem with the solutions needed to effectively design, implement, and verify their SoCs."

"Designers benefit directly from this alignment of the industry's IP and EDA leaders," said Chi-Foon Chan, president and co-CEO at Synopsys. "Serving a broad set of market segments, including automotive, AI, machine learning (ML), 5G wireless, and IoT, we collaborate closely with Arm to deliver solutions that accelerate leading semiconductor companies' innovation using the latest Synopsys tools and Arm IP."

Arm-Synopsys Workshops

At a worldwide series of workshops beginning in Tokyo, Japan, attendees will learn how the Arm-Synopsys collaboration enables Arm-based CPU, graphics, IoT, and automotive innovations.

These deep technical events will be introduced by an Arm keynote presentation and will be followed by in-depth implementation and verification tracks presented by Arm and Synopsys experts, ecosystem partners, and users.

Topics will include:

  • Accelerate software bring-up and system validation leveraging Arm Fast Models, Cycle Models, and debugger in Synopsys tools
  • Optimize Arm-based SoC design using Synopsys Design Platform with Fusion Technology
  • Achieve optimal PPA using the latest Arm Cortex-A processors and DynamIQ technology
  • Accelerate power integrity closure with RedHawk Analysis Fusion within Synopsys' IC Compiler II place-and-route solution
  • Maximize verification ROI with the Synopsys Verification Continuum platform

Arm keynote speakers at the workshops will include: Yuzuru Utsumi, president of Arm K.K.; Allen Wu, president of Arm China; and Javier Orensanz, general manager of the Development Solutions Group.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

I think DevOps is now a rambunctious teenager - it's starting to get a mind of its own, wanting to get its own things but it still needs some adult supervision," explained Thomas Hooker, VP of marketing at CollabNet, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
