SMIC, Synopsys develop SoC design offering for 65nm process

Mobile media support capabilities & optimised for SMIC's low power 65LL process

By CBR Staff Writer

Synopsys, a provider in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC), have delivered a comprehensive offering for system-on-chip (SoC) design for SMIC’s advanced 65-nanometer (nm) process.

The new offering integrates Synopsys broad DesignWare interface and analog IP portfolio, plus other foundation IP with Synopsys’ Galaxy implementation platform, in a reference flow. The companies have also begun work on their 40nm design offering.

SMIC has selected Synopsys as the primary supplier for design implementation software and IP offerings consisting of digital controllers, PHYs and analog IP.

The new offering has been leveraged by Amlogic, a fabless supplier of video, audio and image processing chips, to meet its performance, power and schedule goals for their complex 18-million gate portable media SoC.

The new product also utilised Synopsys’ DesignWare interface and analog IP offering, optimised for SMIC’s low power 65LL process, to meet its performance and integration goals while ensuring product success.

SMIC senior vice president and chief business officer Chris Chi said they selected Synopsys to collaborate with them to deliver their offering for 65nm and 40nm SoC design.
