Solutions Group

Synopsys’ Solutions Group includes our portfolio of IP products and components and our Professional Services Group.

Intellectual Property Products.   Responding to the demands of designers seeking solutions to reduce their design risk and time-to-market, Synopsys offers a large portfolio of standards-based and other IP, including:

·       DesignWare Foundation Library is an extensive library of basic chip elements (for example, adders and multipliers) which Design Compiler incorporates into the design during the logic synthesis stage.

·       DesignWare Verification Library is our library of popular chip function models used to create testbenches for the verification process.

·       DesignWare Cores are pre-designed and pre-verified digital and mixed-signal logic blocks that implement many of the most important industry connectivity protocol standards, including USB (1.1, 2.0 and On-The-Go), PCI (PCI, PCI-X and PCI Express), Serial ATA, Ethernet and JPEG. We believe we offer the industry’s most complete PCI Express portfolio.

Professional Services.   We provide an extensive portfolio of consulting services covering all critical phases of the SoC development process. Our design services are tightly aligned with our EDA tools and IP products to accelerate the learning curve and deploy advanced methodologies. We offer customers a variety of engagement models, from on-site design assistance to help our customers design, verify and/or test their chips and improve their design processes, to full turnkey development and training.

Solutions Group

        Synopsys' Solutions Group includes our portfolio of IP products and components and our Professional Services Group.

        Intellectual Property Products.    As IC designs continue to grow in size, reusing proven design blocks has become an increasingly important way to reduce overall design cost and cycle time. Because

verification accounts for such a large proportion of total chip design time, reusing pre-designed and verified IP components can keep projects on schedule by ensuring that the "designed in" portions of the chip are "pre-verified" and thus will not contain errors. The ability to reuse such IP allows IC companies to focus their design teams on designing the chip features that will give its products a competitive advantage. For these reasons, IC designers are consolidating their IP purchases from fewer vendors who can provide a reliable, comprehensive portfolio of proven IP.

        Our IP products include:

    DesignWare Foundation Library is an extensive library of basic chip elements (for example, adders and multipliers) which Design Compiler incorporates into the design during the logic synthesis stage.

    DesignWare Verification Library is our library of popular chip function models used during the verification process of chip design.

    DesignWare Cores are pre-designed and pre-verified digital and mixed-signal design blocks that implement many of the most important industry standards, including USB (1.1, 2.0 and On-The-Go), PCI (PCI, PCI-X and PCI Express), Ethernet and JPEG. During fiscal 2004, we announced availability of DesignWare PCI Express physical layer IP core, enabling lower cost ICs. We also acquired Accelerant Networks, Inc., giving our customers access to SERDES technology and additional connectivity IP solutions. Finally, during the year we acquired Cascade Semiconductor Solutions, Inc., adding their root-and-switch port IP. As a result, we believe we offer the industry's most complete PCI Express portfolio.

        Professional Services.    We provide a comprehensive portfolio of consulting services covering all critical phases of the SoC development process, as well as systems development in wireless and broadband applications. We offer customers a variety of engagement models, from on-site design assistance to help our customers design, verify and/or test their chips and improve their design processes, to full turnkey development and training.
