Electronic Design Automation, or EDA, is a market segment consisting of software, hardware, and services with the collective goal of assisting in the definition, planning, design, implementation, verification, and subsequent manufacturing of semiconductor devices, or chips. Regarding the manufacturing of these devices, the primary providers of this service are semiconductor foundries, or fabs. These highly complex and costly facilities are either owned and operated by large, vertically integrated semiconductor companies or operated as independent, “pure-play” manufacturing service providers.
The University Software Program bundle is available upon request. Bundle types, quantity and pricing vary by region and are managed by Sales. Their configurations are updated once per year and provide a full Synopsys flow.

Synopsys provides the following support materials to help professors seamlessly integrate Synopsys tools into their courses. All information is available for download from Members Only, (requires SolvNet ID and password to access).
SolvNetPlus is a repository of resources available for individuals to resolve many support issues, provide training, and educational materials. Only the two primary account holders can submit cases and download files. However, additional university affiliates now have access to a knowledgebase version of SolvNet, which unlocks documentation and a comprehensive, searchable knowledgebase that provides solutions to frequently encountered problems.
To learn more, email email@example.com
Yes. Only the two designated site contacts may access SolvNetPlus to download software, keys, and request technical support. However, current and/or enrolled university affiliates have access to an broadened version of SolvNet, which unlocks documentation and offers a comprehensive, searchable knowledgebase with solutions to frequently encountered problems. To add new accounts, either of the two primary contacts can send the list of emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes! Internships are posted here on a regular basis: Internships | Students & Recent Graduates
Yes. Access to training varies by region and may or may not be free depending on the terms of the End User License Agreement.
Yes. You may email the Support Center at email@example.com. From there the inquiries are screened and routed accordingly. Only the two main site contacts (Primary and EST) may request support.
