Mega data centers continue to evolve due to tremendous internet traffic growth from residential, business and mobile users as well as the move towards cloud computing using thin client devices. This is driving the need for new technologies such as Software Defined Networks (SDNs), low-power micro servers and server-based solid state drives (SSDs) to improve data center efficiency. Re-architecting the data center network to support these latest technologies enable the next generation of semiconductor SoCs supporting new protocols to simplify network management and enable network virtualization.
Designers building SoCs for these applications need a combination of high-performance and power-efficient IP solutions to help deliver total system throughput and meet the quality-of-service requirements. Synopsys provides a comprehensive portfolio of high quality, silicon-proven IP that enables designers to develop SoCs for applications such as server blades, networking and storage. The DesignWare IP and system-level design solutions are optimized for high-performance, low power and low latency, and supports advanced process technologies from 28nm to16-nm/14-nm FinFET.
