Synopsys Standard Cell Libraries

As part of Synopsys Foundation IP portfolio, the high-speed, high-density, and low-power Logic Libraries provide a complete standard cell platform solution for a wide variety of system-on-chip (SoC) designs. In addition to Synopsys' silicon-proven standard cell libraries, available Power Optimization Kits (POKs) and Engineering Change Order (ECO) Kits deliver outstanding performance, with low power and small area in the advanced nodes of leading foundries.

Ideal for tablet, smartphone, cell phone, graphics, networking, storage, and other high-performance applications requiring low power and high density, Synopsys Logic Libraries and Memory Compilers provide a unique set of options that enable SoC designers to optimize their products for speed, area, dynamic power, standby power, and cost.

Multiple Architectures, Multiple VTs, Multi-Channel Lengths

The standard cell libraries provide three separate architectures, high-speed (HS), high-density (HD), and ultra high-density (UHD), to optimize circuits for performance, power and area tradeoffs.

The standard cell libraries include multiple voltage threshold implants (VTs) at most processes from 180-nm to 3-nm and support multiple channel (MC) gate lengths to minimize leakage power at 40-nm and below.

SiWare Logic Libraries

Synopsys Embedded Memories and Logic Libraries are available for multiple foundries and process technologies, including GLOBALFOUNDRIES, SMIC, TSMC, and UMC.
