Synopsys Inc. has provided BAE Systems, an international company engaged in the development, delivery and support of advanced defense and aerospace systems, with its Galaxy design platform for use in 24 radiation-hardened space-qualified ASICs.

At the heart of the Galaxy flow is Synopsys' Milkyway database, which allows multiple design teams to work together on designs via a common, seamless data interface. During a difficult development cycle on some of the chips, the Milkyway database enabled multiple design teams to work together on 12 of the ASICs simultaneously. The chips are all full military-aerospace quality, certified for use on multiple DOD (U.S. Department of Defense) and commercial satellite programs.

"Our design teams' expertise, coupled with the seamless tool integration in the Galaxy flow, was paramount in meeting tight deadlines and achieving success," said David Oates, space electronics functional manager at BAE Systems. "The chips we designed were complex, our design process is demanding, and the specs for military-aerospace are unforgiving."
