Synopsys Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

Synopsys, Inc. provides products and services used across the entire Silicon to Software spectrum to bring Smart Everything to life. From engineers creating advanced semiconductors to product teams developing advanced electronic systems to software developers seeking to ensure the security and quality of their code, Synopsys customers trust that their technologies will enable them to meet new requirements for low power as well as reliability, mobility, and security.

Synopsys are supplying the electronic design automation (EDA) software that engineers use to design and test integrated circuits (ICs), also known as chips. Synopsys also offer semiconductor intellectual property (IP) products, which are pre-designed circuits that engineers use as components of larger chip designs rather than designing those circuits themselves. Synopsys provides software and hardware used to validate the electronic systems that incorporate chips and the software that runs on them. To complement these offerings, Synopsys provides technical services and support to help their customers develop advanced chips and electronic systems. These products and services are part of their Semiconductor & System Design segment. Synopsys are also a provider of software tools and services that improve the security, quality and compliance of software in a wide variety of industries, including electronics, financial services, automotive, medicine, energy and industrials. These tools and services are part of their Software Integrity segment.

Synopsys Recent Developments

In October 2021, Synopsys announced the industry's first complete HBM3 IP solution, including controller, PHY, and verification IP for 2.5D multi-die package systems. HBM3 technology helps designers meet essential high-bandwidth and low-power memory requirements for system-on-chip (SoC) designs targeting high-performance computing, AI and graphics applications. Synopsys' DesignWare HBM3 Controller and PHY IP, built on silicon-proven HBM2E IP, leverage Synopsys' interposer expertise to provide a low-risk solution that enables high memory bandwidth at up to 921 GB/s.

In September 2020, Synopsys launched OptoCompiler solution for photonic integrated circuit (PIC) design, layout implementation and verification. By providing schematic-driven layout and advanced photonic layout synthesis in a single platform, OptoCompiler bridges the gap between photonic experts and IC designers to make photonic design accessible, fast, and flexible.

In October 2019, Synopsys launched a comprehensive unified functional safety verification solution to accelerate time to ISO 26262 certification for automotive IP and semiconductor companies targeting the highest Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL D). As part of the solution, Synopsys introduced VC Functional Safety Manager, a FMEA/FMEDA and fault classification automation technology enabling architects, IP designers, and verification engineers to accelerate their functional safety verification with productivity gains up to 50 percent compared to traditional manual and error-prone functional safety verification point tools.

In September 2019 Synopsys released its LucidShape software for the design, simulation, and analysis of automotive exterior lighting products. LucidShape version 2019.09 gives designers new tools to create sophisticated freeform reflectors and dynamic pixel light headlamps, as well as enhanced tools for visualization.

In 2018, Synopsys partnered with Google Cloud to provide a full end-to-end solution to perform functional verification workloads in the cloud. An increasing number of users are seeking solutions that take advantage of the elastic hardware scalability offered in the cloud to address peak/burst simulation capacity requirements, enabling a higher quality verification on a predictable schedule. This collaboration provides a proven and scalable solution to enable Synopsys VCS simulation workloads on Google Cloud.

Synopsys Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In November 2021, Synopsys announced that its full EDA flow has been certified by Samsung Foundry for its new 4LPP (4nm Low Power Plus) process. The 4LPP process, which is available now, represents the latest implementation of Samsung Foundry's unique FinFET technology, which delivers chip density, performance and power advantages for SoCs fueling some of today's most in-demand applications, including high-performance computing, AI, and 5G infrastructure.

In September 2019, Infineon Technologies AG and Synopsys has partnered together to support AI-driven solutions with future automotive microcontrollers. Next-generation AURIX microcontrollers from Infineon will integrate a new high-performance AI accelerator called Parallel Processing Unit (PPU) that will employ Synopsys' DesignWare ARC EV Processor IP. AI and neural networks are fundamental building blocks for future automated driving applications, such as object classification, target tracking, or path planning.

Furthermore, they play an important role in optimizing many other automotive applications, helping to reduce the cost of ECU systems, improving their performance, and accelerating time-to-market. For example, they enable an optimized engine auto-calibration and reduce the number of sensors by producing accurate mathematical models of the physical reactions occurring in a system. At the same time, however, AI applications require much higher computing power than standard algorithms.

Acquisitions are an important part of its growth strategy. Synopsys has completed a significant number of acquisitions in recent years and expects to make additional acquisitions in the future
