STMicroelectronics’ Experience: Synopsys Logic BIST for Automotive and Safety-Critical Designs
ICs targeted for safety-critical applications must be able to perform in-system self-test in compliance with functional safety standards such as ISO 26262. In this webinar, Synopsys highlights synthesis-based logic BIST that addresses the self-test requirements for safety-critical designs. Our guest speaker from STMicroelectronics presents results and details of Synopsys’ test solution successfully deployed on production designs.

Dialog Semiconductor and Synopsys Present: New DFTMAX Ultra for Squeezing Out More Test Compression with Fewer Pins
The demand for pin-limited compression is being driven by tighter form factors, the design of multicore SoCs that require few pins per core for test access, and the adoption of multisite testing as a technique to reduce test application time and cost. In this webinar, we will highlight how Synopsys’ new DFTMAX Ultra is designed from the ground up to achieve high compression using fewer digital scan pins and a minimum of one pair of scan pins. Our guest speaker will then discuss how DFTMAX Ultra is being successfully deployed to lower the cost of testing mixed-signal designs at Dialog Semiconductor.

ST and Synopsys Present: Synphony C Compiler for Faster Implementation of Image Processor IP
Video and image processing hardware has become pervasive in smartphones, cameras, camcorders, autos, security equipment and a host of other devices. As the algorithms often begin in C and C++, high-level synthesis (HLS) from these languages to high-quality RTL can boost design productivity by 5-10X. Our guest speaker will discuss how Synopsys’ Synphony C Compiler HLS solution is being successfully deployed to meet the challenges of designing imaging processors at STMicroelectronics. Learn how you can use Synphony C Compiler and its C++ image processing library to accelerate the delivery of your high-performance image processing IP in a fraction of the time it takes using traditional methods.

Fujitsu’s Experience: Addressing Large Design Challenges with the latest Design Compiler Technologies
Increased design size and complexity can lead to exponential growth in turn-around-time (TAT). This webinar describes the methodology Fujitsu developed using DC Explorer and Design Compiler Graphical to achieve faster design convergence and reduced TAT on large, 40 million+ instance designs. You will hear how DC Explorer speeds up the development of high-quality RTL and constraints and generates an early netlist for guiding and optimizing floorplanning. This early floorplan exploration helps identify layout issues and provides more accurate area estimation up-front in the design flow to help create optimal design partitions, with a better starting point for implementation. Learn how Fujitsu then uses Design Compiler Graphical to achieve higher performance and tighter correlation with place and route for faster design convergence.
