From silicon to software

Our customers create the amazing silicon chips and powerful, secure software that are driving automotive innovation from the inside out and we empower them to build their best.

Synopsys is the leader in tools for designing and verifying state-of-the-art silicon chips and we’re the leader in helping customers build secure, high quality software faster.

We power automotive innovation… from Silicon to Software.

During Development, Testing, and Across the Automotive Supply Chain

Synopsys tools and services empower companies across the automotive supply chain to build security and quality into all stages of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). We identify risky design flaws, control defects, and asset vulnerabilities. We also detect third-party components, security vulnerabilities, license use, and weaknesses in code.

Our solutions help companies align with ISO 26262, MISRA, and other emerging automotive cybersecurity standards.

With Automotive-Grade IP

Synopsys offers the broadest portfolio of silicon-proven, automotive-grade IP including ARC processors, interface IP, embedded memories, logic libraries and security IP.

Our DesignWare IP is ASIL ready ISO 26262 certified, meets stringent AEC-Q100 reliability standards and supports automotive quality management to help accelerate the development of ADAS, connected vehicle and infotainment and MCU designs.

With Virtual Prototypes Across the Supply Chain

Synopsys virtual models and virtual prototyping solutions provide early access to silicon chips and virtual ECUs, allowing software development to start months earlier.

They also enable collaboration across the supply chain of OEMs, Tier 1s and semiconductor companies throughout the automotive development lifecycle.

For Automotive Chip Design & Verification

Our chip design platforms build-in safety mechanisms, such as dual core lockstep and triple mode redundancy and feature comprehensive analysis and test technologies for device aging, soft error analysis and analog fault simulation.

Our verification platform is a complete solution to verify for quality and functional safety powered by key safety-critical technologies for fault analysis, traceability and FMEA (Failure Modes and Effects Analysis).

Our tools are certified to ISO 26262 Tool Confidence Level (TCL) 1 to accelerate quality and functional safety qualification.
