System On and In Chip Solutions

Overview of Services

Our design experts can assist your team throughout the SoC design flow process from performing specialized tasks, working on individual blocks, to full-chip implementations. If you are migrating your design to any of the advanced FinFET process nodes, or transitioning from an ASIC handoff to a CoT flow, we can assist you in achieving better results faster, avoiding common pitfalls, deploy new reference flows, and providing design services from architecture phase through implementation and engineering sample bring-up.

Case Study

Project# A3HEJG: Design Exploration Helps Startup Prove Feasibility of IP Performance

A startup needed to prove its IP performance feasibility claims to potential customers. They hired Synopsys Design Services for Physical Design & Assistance.

Our consultants setup the flow, created a floorplan and performed synthesis-through-route-optimization tasks, including static timing and extraction. Subsequent analysis lent credibility to the client’s performance predictions for both timing and power.

The engineering manager described the engagement as “…much more than the standard consulting services…” describing the access to multiple Synopsys experts as like having “…a network of resources to tap into.” Synopsys Design Services delivered more than expected, “…helping us down the road” by also presenting recommendations for delivering the IP as a hard macro.
