Software and IP for semiconductor provider, Synopsys, Inc., and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC), has just announced their delivery of a comprehensive solution for system-on-chip (SoC) design for the advanced 65nm process, the Galaxy Implementation Platform . The solution integrates Synopsys' broad DesignWare interface and analog IP portfolio, plus other foundation IP.

The companies have also started work on their 40nm design solution. Based on collaboration agreements for 65nm and 40nm, SMIC has chosen Synopsys as the primary supplier for design implementation software and IP solutions including digital controllers, PHYs and analog IP. "We selected Synopsys to collaborate with us to deliver our solution for 65-nanometer and 40-nanometer SoC design," said Chris Chi, senior VP and chief business officer at SMIC. "Our design services team counts on the Galaxy Implementation Platform's productivity and quality of results when we're helping our end-customers with their complex designs."

Amlogic has used this solution in developing its complex, 18-million gate portable media SoC, the AML8726-M. In particular, Amlogic applied the Galaxy Implementation Platform's IC Compiler's Multi-Corner Multi-Mode (MCMM) optimization and ECO timing fixing to accelerate its design cycle. Amlogic also tapped Synopsys' DesignWare interface and analog IP solutions, optimized for SMIC's low power 65LL process.

The Synopsys Galaxy Implementation Platform is now available immediately from Synopsys. Selected DesignWare IP for the SMIC 65LL process is also available. The SMIC 65nm and 40nm process as well as enabled PDKs are available through SMIC.
