H-Foundation 2012.03 SPARC Solaris Support Changes

Dear Synopsys Customer:

NOTE: The information in this letter affects only those customers using the SPARC Solaris 9 Operating System (OS). If this does not apply to you, please disregard.

We believe our customers need stable, well-supported operating systems on which to run their EDA tools. In order for us to align to timelines of our OS and hardware vendors, we are updating our compute platforms roadmap.

This letter is to inform you that Synopsys is dropping support for SPARC Solaris 9 starting with the 2012.03 software release. Synopsys software will still continue to be supported on the SPARC Solaris 10 operating system.

Service packs to releases prior to 2012.03 will continue to support the foundation of the corresponding feature release. These service packs will continue to support SPARC Solaris 9.

More about Synopsys Compute Platforms:
Information on supported hardware platforms, operating systems, OS versions, and patch bundles for Synopsys products is available at the Synopsys web site here.

If you have any questions, please contact the Synopsys Support Center or your local sales support team.
