Disrupting the Automotive Development Process

Automotive systems require increasing amounts of compute power and software content―and years of development time. Accelerate the process with Synopsys. We help you build smarter, more secure chips and software―faster―for safety-critical applications like ADAS, adaptive cruise control, and autonomous driving.

Make Security a Driving Force
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.

Accelerate Silicon Chip Design
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.

Speed Software Development
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.

Ensure Functional Safety and Reliability
for automotive chip design and verification

Synopsys offers native automotive solutions optimized for efficient design of autonomous driving and ADAS SoCs.

Our unified functional safety verification platform is a complete solution that brings together best-in-class technologies for FMEA, FMEDA and fault campaign management under a single unified flow.

We also provide complete solutions to address reliability challenges, including electromigration (EM), voltage (IR) drop, device aging, and robust redundant via insertion (RVI) capabilities.

Our tools are certified to ISO 26262 ASIL D to accelerate quality and functional safety qualification.

Saber accelerates robust design

Successful automotive designs require systematic methods to meet aggressive performance goals and compressed schedules.

Saber is used to design and verify the interaction of multiple technologies (electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, magnetic, software, etc.). Through a robust design methodology, system performance is immunized against variance in parameters. These methods have proven to reduce design cycle time and maximize performance and reliability.
