Synopsys targets automotive applications with latest IP

1 min read

Synopsys is set to accelerate automotive SoC development with the launch of a broad new portfolio of silicon-proven IP. Its DesignWare IP portfolio for automotive applications includes: Ethernet AVB, LPDDR4, MIPI CSI-2 and DSI, HDMI, PCI Express, USB, Mobile Storage, Logic Libraries, Embedded Memories, NVM, Data Converters, ARC EM processors, EV vision processors and the Sensor and Control IP Subsystem.

The portfolio meets key automotive functional safety requirements and is being enhanced to address AEC-Q100 and TS 16949 requirements, as a result SoC designers will be able to accelerate their functional safety assessments and meet the high quality levels required in automotive applications.

DesignWare Ethernet AVB, LPDDR4 and Embedded Memory IP are now certified to be ASIL B Ready for ISO 26262 functional safety, as required by ADAS applications and, in addition to providing ASIL B Ready IP, Synopsys is making significant investments in IP solutions that are AEC-Q100 tested and meet TS 16949 quality management standards.

"The growth of safety features in automotive SoCs requires IP providers to put strict processes in place to help ensure that the IP meets stringent functional safety standards," said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP and prototyping at Synopsys.
