Synopsys Inc. has announced that Sanyo Semiconductor Co. Ltd has signed an expanded business agreement to establish Synopsys as its leading EDA supplier across the entire implementation and verification design flow. A key factor in the decision were the productivity gains Sanyo achieved by deploying the Synopsys Galaxy design and Discovery verification platforms. This collaborative partnership includes increased usage of tools throughout Synopsys' product portfolio, including Design Compiler synthesis, Primetime timing analysis, and IC Compiler place and route technology on the Galaxy design platform, and the VCS and NanoSim simulators for analogue and digital verification on the Synopsys Discovery verification platform.

"By extending our long-term relationship with Synopsys, we are creating a focused, collaborative effort to achieve the highest level of productivity in our design flow," said Takeshi Ogiwara, general manager, Design Engineering Central Division, LSI H.Q. at Sanyo Semiconductor. "Standardising on the Galaxy and Discovery platforms will help us master new challenges encountered at the leading edge of technology. In fact, deploying Synopsys' leading technology has already helped Sanyo realise a number of successful production designs."

"As we extend our existing successful relationship with Sanyo to the next level, we will focus on optimising the design flow speed and throughput for highest productivity," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "This important joint initiative is designed to enable higher revenues for Sanyo by expanding engineering productivity and keeping Sanyo at the leading edge of technology."
