To help memory chip designers shift left, Synopsys provides the industry’s most complete, end-to-end design and verification flow. Our portfolio includes DTCO solutions augmented by ultra-fast conventional and machine learning-driven simulation, and “digitized” memory design implementation flows using digital tools spanning timing characterization, digital-on-top verification, and place and route to enable fast and accurate PPA optimization. In addition, we also offer full lifecycle reliability verification including memory-specific electrical rule checking, fast chip-level electromagnetic/IR analysis with power delivery network, functional safety solutions with ISO 26262 compliance, post-silicon and in-field defect management, as well as an integrated multi-die solution.
Aside from our EDA flows, we offer embedded memories and memory interface IP, aligned with the latest protocols, to help meet performance, bandwidth, latency, and power requirements, as well as verification IP to help accelerate runtime, debug, and coverage closure.
Memory design is very unique. Each organization employs its own customizations, taking great care in placement, routing, and connections and tweaking their designs to the nth degree to achieve their target PPA goals. By deploying tools and flows that can address the key memory design challenges while shifting the development process left, memory designers can accelerate their process and can get ahead of the competition with their differentiated designs.
