Synopsys Inc. announced that it is expanding its presence in electronic system level (ESL) design by acquiring Virtio Corp., a creator of virtual platforms for embedded software development.

According to Synopsys, the combination of its System Studio solution with Virtio's virtual prototyping technology will help accelerate systems to market by giving software developers the ability to begin code development much earlier than with prevailing methods.

John Chilton, senior vice president and general manager of the Solutions Group at Synopsys, said that system designers know they can get their products to market much earlier and with more confidence if embedded software development could begin without having to wait for the completion of the physical board and SoCs.

"Mutual Synopsys and Virtio customers are telling us that by using Virtio's virtual platform technology they've been able to avoid this delay and start software development nine to 12 months earlier," said Chilton. "This acquisition gives Synopsys the opportunity to build on these successes and, by integrating Virtio's technology with our industry-leading IP and tools, help address designers' key ESL challenges."
