Start with Proven Models to Accelerate Your Design 

DesignWare TLM Library
The Synopsys DesignWare® TLM Library provides product development teams a broad portfolio of tool-independent transaction-level models (TLMs) representing Synopsys DesignWare interface IP and SoC infrastructure IP blocks for the creation of virtual prototypes. These TLM-2.0 LT (loosely timed) models benefit from advanced debug and analysis capabilities when used with Synopsys’ virtual prototyping or architecture design tools.

Enabling Virtual Prototyping for ARM Powered® Designs
Synopsys provides product development teams with a comprehensive set of transaction-level models (TLMs) of ARM IP that serve as the building blocks of virtual prototypes. Virtual prototypes are fully functional software models of complete embedded systems, enabling pre-RTL embedded software development and software-driven system validation. The ability to co-design hardware and software through virtual prototypes significantly reduces the product design cycle and speeds time-to-market. Along with the Virtualizer™ tool set's advanced debug and analysis debug and analysis capabilities, designers can take advantage of the performance and early availability of the models to accelerate virtual prototype development, enabling them to start software design up to 12 months before first silicon is available.

Algorithm Design DSP Model Libraries
The System Studio DSP Model Libraries and SPW Model Libraries consist of more than 3000 models, from simple to complex, supporting the analysis and design of protocols and standards in the wireless algorithms and digital signal processing domain, such as LTE models. Accelerate your digital signal processing algorithm design by using ready-to-go simulation models, and quickly create alternative solutions by modifying the existing models.

High-Level Modeling Library and IP
Synphony HLS provides an electronic system-level design IP model library that is synthesizable into optimized RTL implementations. It includes common signal processing functions such as filtering (FIR, IIR), FFT transforms, math and CORDIC functions, signal operations, memories, and control logic. It simplifies fixed-point design by utilizing vector and multi-rate simulation and analysis features of MATLAB and Simulink model environments from MathWorks.

Architecture Design Models
The Architecture Design Models provide architects and system designers with models enabling the efficient design, performance analysis, and optimization of multicore SoC architectures in Synopsys Platform Architect. The library contains SystemC TLM models of commonly required architectural components including generic traffic generators, AMBA and OCP-IP based interconnect, memory subsystems, and embedded processors. Developed in partnership with leading IP providers including ARM, MIPS and Tensilica, these models are configurable and fully instrumented for performance analysis. See the DesignWare TLM Library and Virtual Prototyping Models pages for more models that are compatible with our Architecture Design solution.

Virtual Prototyping Models
Synopsys provides the widest portfolio of TLMs enabling rapid creation of virtual prototypes using Synopsys virtual prototyping tools. This enables software developers to rapidly benefit from the analysis and debug capabilities of the Synopsys virtual prototyping tools within the context of their target development platform. The TLM libraries include models representing processors of all leading IP providers including ARM, MIPS, Tensilica, CEVA, Freescale, Renesas and Infineon. The models are configurable and instrumented for software analysis and debug visibility. See the DesignWare TLM Library and Architecture Design Models for additional models for virtual prototyping.

Saber Model Libraries for Power Electronic & Multi-domain Systems
Access to proven physical models ensures design teams can accurately model, analyze, and optimize the behavior of complex physical systems. The Saber libraries provide over 30,000 behavioral models of characterized discrete devices, ICs and multi-domain templates for simulating power electronics, electrical generation and distribution systems, electric machines and drives, mechatronics, in-vehicle networks, and more.
