Synopsys Inc. announced it has completed its acquisition of HPL Technologies Inc., a supplier of yield management software and test chip solutions.

According to the press release, this acquisition makes Synopsys the first EDA company with a comprehensive design-to-silicon flow that links directly into the semiconductor manufacturing process. Synopsys acquired HPL in an all-cash deal valued at approximately $13 million or 30 cents per share.

Synopsys added that a key benefit of the HPL acquisition is that it gives Synopsys direct access to the yield data needed to reduce systematic defectivity. By extending Synopsys' process solutions directly into the fab, Synopsys can help customers accelerate the introduction of new designs by reducing the time it takes to get from concept to manufacturing.
