Synopsys acquires Synfora’s assets

To strengthen its position in system-level design and verification

By CBR Staff Writer

Synopsys, a provider of software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, has acquired technology, engineering resources and other assets of Synfora, a provider of C/C++ high-level synthesis tools used to design complex systems-on-chips (SoCs) and FPGAs.

Synopsys said that the acquisition will strengthen its position in system-level design and verification and will enhance the company’s FPGA-based prototyping offerings.

Synfora enables designers to quickly create and synthesise IC building blocks starting from a description written in the C or C++ programming language.

Joachim Kunkel, senior vice president and general manager of the Solutions Group at Synopsys, said: "This acquisition adds proven C/C++ high-level synthesis technology to our system-level solutions portfolio and broadens Synopsys’ comprehensive solutions for block creation and optimisation.

"It underscores Synopsys’ clear commitment to being the leading EDA supplier of system-level solutions for SoC design, software development, hardware/software integration and system validation."
