IP Accelerated Initiative 

Fast Prototyping, Software Development and Integration 

With the increase in SoC hardware and software complexity, companies need more from their IP providers to help meet their time-to-market schedules. Delivering IP blocks alone is no longer adequate to address the growing SoC design and integration challenges. Synopsys goes beyond the traditional IP supplier paradigm, redefining what is expected from IP providers to help customers achieve successful IP integration with less effort, lower risk, and faster time-to-market.

The Synopsys IP Accelerated initiative augments Synopsys’ established, broad portfolio of silicon-proven DesignWare® IP with new DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits, DesignWare IP Virtualizer Development Kits, and IP subsystems to accelerate prototyping, software development, and integration of IP into SoCs.

For hardware engineers, the IP Prototyping Kits provide a validated IP configuration that can be easily modified to explore design tradeoffs for the target application. Software developers can use either the IP Virtual Development Kits or the IP Prototyping Kits as proven targets for early software development, bring-up, debug and test.
