TetraMem faced several critical challenges in developing their novel AI accelerator SoC:
  • Global Team Collaboration: Having a global team spread across continents requires a seamless, unified mixed-signal SoC design environment for efficient collaboration.

  • Resource Needs: CAD setup/flows and on-demand scalable and elastic IT resources are needed.

    Complex Design Integration: The AI accelerator’s complex design requires smooth integration and verification of analog in-memory computing and the digital RISC-V processor, with critical time-to-market targets.


To address these challenges, TetraMem leveraged Synopsys Cloud's comprehensive solutions:

  • Pre-configured Design Flow: Pre-configured end-to-end analog design flow helped jumpstart development.
  • User-Friendly Platform: Intuitive and user-friendly browser-based platform for chip design.
  • Unlimited EDA Resources: On-demand pay-per-use access to unlimited EDA resources without licensing constraints, enabling faster time to results.

  • Scalable Compute and Storage: Instant availability of scalable and cutting-edge compute and storage.


By utilizing Synopsys Cloud, TetraMem achieved significant results:

  • Rapid Production Environment: Get up and running in days instead of weeks.

  • Complete Design Flow: Providing simulation and verification capabilities for designs, eliminating the need for CAD setup, and enabling automated PDK and technology setup.

  • Enhanced Collaboration: Global teams can collaborate on the same schematic, layout, or design step in real time.

  • Faster Time to Market: Scalable compute and unlimited tool licenses speed time to market, enabling achievement of PPA targets and robust design by allowing more iterations in less time.

  • Comprehensive Availability: Includes the entire portfolio of Synopsys EDA software and high-quality, silicon-proven Synopsys IP.
