Sun Microsystems Inc. announced that Cadence Design Systems Inc. is the first EDA technology vendor to provide broad support across its product lines for the Solaris 10 OS for AMD Opteron and Sun UltraSPARC processor-powered Sun Fire clients and servers. The two companies also signed a multi-year contract for Cadence products and services, and agreed to develop additional solutions that address design challenges at 90nm and beyond.

Cadence will be supporting both desktop and server applications from their EDA product line for ICs. With this broad support, Cadence will offer over 60 applications on four different platforms for the Solaris 10 OS. "As a result of dedicated investments in engineering and testing focused on product interoperability, performance optimization and timely delivery, Cadence customers will be able to easily run Solaris 10, the most advanced operating system on the planet," said Stephen Borcich, VP of Partner Marketing at Sun Microsystems. "The key features of the Solaris 10 OS, including Dynamic Tracing and Solaris Containers, running on SPARC and x64 processor-based Sun Fire servers, will help our customers get better service levels and application performance, as well as protect their software investment."

In response to customer demand, said the press release, Cadence will broaden support for the Cadence Encounter digital IC design platform, the Virtuoso custom design platform, the Incisive functional verification platform, and the Cadence Design for Manufacturing technologies to include the Solaris 10 OS on Sun Fire x64 (x86, 64-bit) servers and clients powered by AMD Opteron processors.
