SNUG 2018 Custom Design Platform Lunch

Custom Compiler Lunch and Learn Panelists

Accelerating Robust Custom Design

The 2018 SNUG Silicon Valley Lunch & Learn panel focused on how customers are deploying the Synopsys Custom Design Platform to improve custom layout productivity, design robustness, and reliability.

Automotive and advanced-node AMS designs must operate within specs in the presence of process variations and diverse environmental conditions. Synopsys’ Custom Design Platform accelerates robust AMS design by providing physically-aware design, visually-assisted layout, and reliability-aware verification within a unified environment, anchored by industry gold-standard circuit simulation and parasitic extraction tools.

On March 22, 2018, Synopsys hosted a Custom Design Lunch & Learn at SNUG in Santa Clara, CA. At this event, technologists from Micron, Renesas, Seagate, and Synopsys' Solutions Group discussed their experiences deploying the Synopsys Custom Design Platform to improve custom layout productivity, design robustness and reliability.
