  • Design hand-off. Provide us your design at any point between your early system spec and placed-gates.
  • Design engineering. We create an optimal implementation based on your design requirements.
  • Silicon manufacturing. You have access to mainstream and advanced processes (including rad-hard) and Synopsys interfaces with the manufacturing partner to ensure a smooth GDSII handoff.
  • Parts delivery. You receive prototype or production parts, fully packaged and tested.

Value: An Integrated Solution With Our Partners
  • Design/manufacturing flow integration
  • IP validation
  • Operational coordination
  • Business process collaboration
  • Overall program management

Complex chips mean complex challenges. A successful system-on-chip (SOC) implementation requires only comprehensive design proficiency, but systems, manufacturing, and vendor management expertise as well. For some electronic systems developers, their core differentiation and competencies lie elsewhere; building and maintaining an infrastructure to support their chip designs from the earliest stages of product concept all the way through packaged parts just doesn’t make sense. Synopsys can help…

Synopsys Professional Services offers a flexible Concept to Parts solution that takes your design from your designated handoff point (e.g., specification, RTL, netlist) and delivers working parts. In cooperation with our leading ASIC and manufacturing services partners, we blend together the required core skills in design, and manufacturing, into a comprehensive offering . Our Concept to Parts solution includes silicon-validated design flows comprehensive intellectual property (IP) portfolios and a complete compute infrastructure—all the ingredients necessary for delivering your silicon on-schedule and on-spec.

Case Study
Synopsys Helps Customer Take-Off When an aerospace company needed a highly integrated chip for a system they had to deliver on an aggressive schedule, they turned to Synopsys Professional Services. Synopsys engaged from the requirements document all the way through the delivery of production parts. With the complete solution of multiple IP blocks, spec development through physical design services, as well as seamless cooperation with the silicon manufacturer, Synopsys was able to compress the estimated 15-month schedule to 10 months with first pass silicon success.

All design targets for performance, power consumption, and area were met. And by delivering on an accelerated schedule, the company qualified for the maximum monetary incentives from its customer. Using Synopsys Professional Services as a strategic resource helped the company maintain agility and shorten cycle times for the most highly integrated chip they had ever undertaken.
