Synopsys Major Releases 

This page links to installation information for major Synopsys releases, which occur in March, June, September, and December. In the table below, click the document link for the release you need (or check the link associated with your product release date).

You can also find installation information on the product software physical media (such as CD, DVD, or flash drive) and in the product_INSTALL_README.txt file in the product EST download directory.

Some products might release at other times, and not all products are included in the Installation Guide. If you do not find the information you want, check the Products Not Found page.
