Platform Notices  

November 9, 2009 

Dear Synopsys Customer:

If you are using the Synopsys TCAD Sentaurus, TCAD Sentaurus Topography, Fammos, Raphael, Taurus TSUPREM-4, or Taurus Medici products on the SPARC Solaris platform, please read this letter carefully.

Due to the decline in the demand for TCAD Sentaurus, TCAD Sentaurus Topography, Fammos, Raphael, Taurus TSUPREM-4, and Taurus Medici on the SPARC Solaris platform, the Synopsys products release C-2009.06, was the final shipping release for this platform. Subsequent new releases will no longer support the SPARC Solaris platform.

By providing you with this notice, we hope to help minimize your inconvenience in implementing this change. If you are affected by this change, Synopsys is available to assist you in the migration of your Synopsys products to another supported compute platform.

General information on compute platforms and versions supported by Synopsys products is available at the Synopsys web site at:

Compute Platforms Roadmap

Please refer to the TCAD Sentaurus product documentation for product-specific information concerning compute platform support.

If you have any further questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact your local Synopsys CAE or Account Team.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Richard Paw
Compute Platforms Alliance Manager
Synopsys, Inc.
