Galaxy Custom Designer 

Galaxy Custom Designer™ leverages Synopsys' Galaxy™ Implementation Platform to provide a unified solution for custom and digital designs, thereby enhancing system-on-chip (SoC) design efficiency and productivity. Built from the ground up, Custom Designer was architected for productivity. It is the first-ever custom implementation solution built on an open architecture supporting interoperable process design kits (PDKs) from leading foundries. Custom Designer delivers unmatched productivity with a common use model for simulation, analysis, parasitic extraction and physical verification.

In addition to facilitating innovation with the open architecture, Custom Designer dramatically enhances productivity by seamlessly bridging the gap between the historically disparate worlds of digital and custom design. Custom Designer enables complete data transparency with Synopsys' IC Compiler physical implementation solution, allowing the exchange of vital information during floorplanning, placement, routing and final chip editing to reduce time-consuming design iterations.

Modern-era Custom Design
