By CBR Staff Writer

Electronic Design Automation industry Synopsys has acquired Extreme DA, a privately held company that develops software to improve integrated circuit (IC) design performance, power consumption and manufacturing yields.

Extreme DA has introduced the first commercial statistical static timing analysis (SSTA) tool suite, and later introduced the ability to statistically model on-chip variation without the need for expensive cell library characterization in its GoldTime static timing analysis tool, said Synopsys.

It added, Synopsys PrimeTime timing analysis provides timing, signal integrity, power and variation-aware analysis, and it helps pinpoint problems prior to tapeout, thereby reducing risk, ensuring design integrity and lowering the cost of design.

Synopsys said the acquisition extends Synopsys’ static timing analysis and multicore software development by adding technology and engineering talent to accelerate advancements in Synopsys’ timing analysis offerings.

With the acquisition, Synopsys can address Giga-scale design challenges, customers will benefit from a world-class sales support team, said the company.

"Synopsys’ Implementation Group senior vice president and general manager Antun Domic said Synopsys is committed to helping designers of next-generation ICs meet the productivity and performance challenges created by the demand for smart electronics and mobile devices.

"The combination of Synopsys and Extreme DA’s technological capabilities and team expertise will help enable Synopsys to deliver best-in-class tools that address the scalability, convergence and throughput needs of our customers’ massive designs," said Domic.
