Synopsys' shopping spree extends to Synfora's technology and engineering resources
June 11, 2010 // Julien Happich
Synopsys announced it has acquired technology, engineering resources and other assets of Synfora, Inc., a provider of C/C++ high-level synthesis tools used to design complex systems-on-chips (SoCs) and FPGAs.
The asset acquisition strengthens Synopsys' position in system-level design and verification and enhances the company's FPGA-based prototyping solutions.
Synfora's technology enables designers to quickly create and synthesize IC building blocks starting from a description written in the C or C++ programming language. The advantages of Synfora's technology, including high capacity and quality of results for performance, area and power, are production-proven in leading-edge designs.
Customers who have adopted Synfora's tools have experienced the benefits of the technology for their FPGA and SoC designs through integration with Synopsys' Synplify Premier synthesis and Galaxy implementation platform.
"This acquisition adds proven C/C++ high-level synthesis technology to our system-level solutions portfolio and broadens Synopsys' comprehensive solutions for block creation and optimization," said Joachim Kunkel, senior vice president and general manager of the Solutions Group at Synopsys. "It underscores Synopsys' clear commitment to being the leading EDA supplier of system-level solutions for SoC design, software development, hardware/software integration and system validation." The terms of the deal, which closed today, have not been disclosed.
