Synopsys Inc. announced that Agere Systems has standardized on Synopsys' Galaxy Design and Discovery Platforms for implementation and verification in its digital design flows, including advanced 65nm and below processes.

According to the press release, Agere chose Synopsys as its primary supplier because of the latter's technology strength and ability to help Agere meet its complex SoC design requirements while improving quality, shortening time to results and increasing return on investment throughout the design and verification cycles. The agreement with Synopsys is part of Agere's plan to reduce redundancies and increase efficiency in its use of EDA software.

Both companies will work closely together to increase Agere's use of design-for-manufacturing technology, which is being integrated with the Galaxy and Discovery platforms. Consolidation of Agere's digital EDA solutions will also help the company streamline its design and verification cycles as it develops products that reduce SoC size, power consumption and costs for its customers.

"Synopsys has a proven track record with us and with the foundries we use for silicon implementation," said Hai Wang, vice president front end operations at Agere. "Using Synopsys as a design partner will help us consolidate our digital EDA solutions, which in turn will reduce costs and speed time to results."
