K-Foundation 2015.03 Solaris SPARC Support End-of-Life

Dear Synopsys Customer:

NOTE: The information in this letter affects only those customers using the Solaris SPARC 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 Solaris SPARC platform starting with the 2015.03 (K-Foundation) software release. J-Foundation (2014.06, 2014.09, 2014.12) will be the final feature release to support the Solaris SPARC platform. Service packs to releases prior to 2015.03 will continue to support the foundation of the corresponding feature release. These service packs will continue to support the Solaris SPARC platform until December 2015.
