ARM and Synopsys sign multiyear partnership

ARM and Synopsys sign multiyear partnership

ARM and Synopsys have signed an expanded multiyear agreement which will extend ARM's access to the latter's eda technology.

Under the deal, ARM will also provide Synopsys with access to the ARM Cortex-A15 processor.

According to Mike Muller, pictured, founder and chief technical officer at ARM, the agreement will enable SoC designers to deliver differentiated products to market quickly and with low risk.

"Partnership has always been at the heart of the ARM business model," said Muller. "The new agreement with Synopsys builds on our successful history of jointly delivering leading solutions to the world's most advanced semiconductor companies. To be successful in the rapidly growing mobile internet space, semiconductor companies need to deliver much higher levels of performance within tight power constraints and in even shorter periods of time. This agreement allows customer design teams to benefit from the experience gained by Synopsys and ARM during initial development and with licensees of the ARM Cortex-A15 processor."
