Oct 10, 2000, 17:14 (0 Talkback[s])

"Synopsys today announced the availability of a full tool suite for high-level design on the popular Linux operating system(OS). In addition to the complete RTL synthesis solution with Synopsys' flagship product Design Compiler, the extensive list of Linux products includes PrimeTime, Synopsys' industry-leading gate-level static timing analysis tool for System-on-a-Chip (SoC), Scirocco high-performance VHDL Simulator, and Module Compiler."

Increasingly complex designs require design teams to rely on large networks of high-performance workstations and servers. Low-cost, reliable, Intel-based computers, running Linux, provide an ideal design and development platform because of their ability to fit easily into an existing UNIX environment. The availability of Synopsys' synthesis and verification solutions, combined with the improved price/performance ratio of hardware, provides designers of complex IC and systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) with a high-throughput, low-cost design and verification environment."
