Synopsys Major Releases

This page links to installation information for major Synopsys releases, which occur in March, June, September, and December. In the table below, click the document link for the release you need (or click the link associated with your product release date).

Some products might release at other times, and not all products are included in the Installation Guide. If you do not find the information you want, check for a product_INSTALL_README.txt file or other installation or readme file in the product EFT download directory. (For Saber tools and older tools, see the Products Not Found page.)

Synopsys Installer
For most Synopsys products you need to download the Synopsys Installer. If you are downloading Synopsys Common Licensing the Synopsys Installer is also required.

WARNING:  Starting April 2019, most product releases using Synopsys Installer require a minimum version of Synopsys Installer 5.0.

Release Information

Service pack releases (such as version P-2019.03-SP2) are standalone releases and must be installed in a new directory. Do not install them over an existing release. The standard installation instructions in the Installation Guide also apply to service pack releases.

These documents require Adobe Reader to view. You can download the latest version of Adobe Reader.
