Synopsys Inc. and Altera Corp. have agreed to establish Synopsys professional services resources to support Altera's HardCopy design center.

The collaboration is expected to accelerate HardCopy device implementation by establishing an advanced and optimized back-end design flow and provide access to expert physical design resources that will complement Altera's existing HardCopy design center. Additionally, designers can now use Synopsys' Galaxy Design Platform front-end flow to design their Stratix FPGA.

The flow will be used by Altera and Synopsys to further optimize the chip performance and reduce the turn-around-time of HardCopy implementations. Once a customer's design is verified in a Stratix FPGA, the Altera HardCopy design center performs the necessary back-end design services required to build production masks. Based on Synopsys professional services, Altera will utilize Synopsys as complementary design resources to support these implementation efforts. Services performed will include place-and-route, design rules checking, formal verification, and the generation of the final GDSII artwork.
