Microsemi, Synopsys extend design software OEM agreement

Microsemi and Synopsys have signed a multi-year extension of their OEM agreement under which customised FPGA synthesis tools are made available to Microsemi’s customers.

“Extending our relationship enables us to continue leveraging the company’s extensive expertise in synthesis technology while allowing Microsemi’s engineering resources to focus on supporting the advanced features and capabilities [of] our FPGAs,” said Jim Davis, vice president of software engineering at Microsemi. “Synopsys’ Synplify Pro synthesis software is specifically designed for FPGAs and is well-known as the de facto industry standard for producing high performance, cost-effective designs for these devices.”

“We were pleased to support Microsemi throughout the early access program for PolarFire FPGAs and are proud to be a part of its mid-range FPGA launch,” said Andrew Dauman, vice president of engineering in Synopsys’ Verification Group.

Synopsys’ Synplify Pro synthesis software and its Identify RTL Debugger are integrated into Microsemi’s Libero SoC Design Suite. According to the companies, the solutions enable faster design time with area optimisation for cost and power, speeding FPGA development, including the recently released PolarFire FPGA family.
