DesignWare Embedded Memories, Test and Logic Libraries 


Today’s demanding applications require silicon technologies to take up less space while delivering more functionality with lower power. In addition, the combination of shrinking process technologies and increasing design complexity makes it more difficult to achieve high yield, so a robust memory repair solution is critical for achieving superior test quality and high manufacturing yield. See what designers have to say about their embedded memory and logic library use and evaluation criteria in this Synopsys-sponsored market research.

Synopsys' DesignWare® Embedded Memory and Logic Library portfolio and STAR Memory System®, for test and repair of embedded memories, offers the largest selection of silicon-proven, low-risk, easy-to-integrate memory and logic IP available today, giving you everything you need to implement a full SoC and achieve the best combination of power, performance, area and yield.

Memories, Test and Logic Libraries


Article: Embedded Memory Test and Repair Optimizes SoC Yields
As process technologies continue to shrink while memory size and design complexity grow, designers are faced with new memory defects and failure mechanisms in their designs, which ultimately result in lower yield. New and emerging design challenges make it critical for embedded memory test and repair solutions to keep up with technology advances in order to consistently provide superior test quality and yield optimization.

Article: Selecting Standard Cell and Memory IP to Meet Chip Goals
Designers must make practical trade-offs in performance, power consumption and die area, or PPA, in virtually every SoC implementation today. This article explains how the Synopsys’ DesignWare® Duet Packages of Embedded Memories and Logic Libraries provide design teams all of the fundamental IP elements needed to strike the best combination of performance, power and area in their system-on-chip (SoC) implementations.
