Synopsys Inc. claimed to be the first EDA software company to support the Intel Xeon processor with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) for 64bit and 32bit computing with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 3 operating system using its Galaxy design and discovery verification technology.

"We are pleased to see the release of Synopsys products on Intel's Xeon processor-based platforms, offering both 64bit and 32bit computing to meet the ever-increasing design computing capacity and performance needs," said Guru Bhatia, director of engineering computing, Intel. "The Intel Xeon processor-based platforms with Intel EM64T provide large memory support, demand based switching for power consumption optimization, and PCI-Express-based advanced I/O along with higher performance. That combination of features and performance, coupled with Synopsys' suite of semiconductor design and verification tools, gives a technical advantage to the EDA engineering community to design complex silicon products."

Synopsys supports the following Galaxy and Discovery technologies on the new Intel Xeon processor-based compute platform: The Design Compiler and DesignWare library arithmetic generators and building blocks used for synthesis, the DFT Compiler and TetraMAX test, Physical Compiler and Astro physical implementation, Power Compiler power management, PrimeTime static timing analysis, Formality equivalency checking, Hercules layout verification and NanoSim mixed-signal design software.

Additional products supporting the said platform include: The BSD Compiler, Design Compiler FPGA, Design Analyzer, HDL Compiler, Module Compiler and PathMill tools. Product support in March 2005 is expected to include VCS complete RTL verification solution, with more product support planned for 2005.
