Sondrel Selects Synopsys Fusion Design and Verification Platforms to Displace Legacy Design Tools

Sondrel Accelerates SoC Design and Packaging with Synopsys Solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced Sondrel has adopted the Synopsys Fusion Design and Verification Continuum® platforms to accelerate the design and verification of large, complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs for automotive, AI, machine learning, IoT, consumer AR/VR gaming, and security applications. Sondrel plans to use solutions from Synopsys’ design and verification platforms to create power-efficient designs for their customers.

As Sondrel expands its capabilities to transform designs into tested, volume-packaged silicon, Synopsys was chosen based on several critical benchmarks to replace its legacy design systems. Synopsys’ track-record of power-efficient designs and power, performance and area metrics drove Sondrel’s decision to adopt the industry-leading design and verification technologies enabling power-efficient SoC designs with the best quality-of-results (QoR) and time-to-results.

“Customers come to Sondrel for solutions that push the boundaries,” said Graham Curren, Sondrel’s CEO and Founder. “Every year, SoCs become larger and more complex. Our reputation is built on delivering these leading-edge designs on time and on budget. And, to do that, we need the best-in-class tools such as the Synopsys comprehensive digital and verification full-flow solutions. We have collaborated closely with Synopsys for many years and they are a trusted partner who always goes the extra mile to help us exceed our customers’ expectation.”

Sondrel plans to use Synopsys’ design and verification platform solutions to enable the creation of some of the most complex and power-efficient architectures for their customers. Sondrel’s focus on the design of large digital multi-core complex fabrics stems from decades of extensive expertise configuring leading processor architectures and targeting advanced process nodes from leading foundries.

“Through our collaboration, Sondrel’s customers can leverage Synopsys’ industry-leading platform solutions to design and verify complex, power-efficient SoCs for various markets,” said Sanjay Bali, vice president of product marketing at Synopsys. “Sondrel can confidently achieve product differentiation and the highest level of productivity utilizing Synopsys comprehensive design and verification solutions for its designs.”

Use Configurable Digital IO To Give Your Industrial Controller the Edge

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

As factories get bigger, centralized industrial process control has become difficult to manage. While there have been attempts to simplify the task, it remains unwieldy. In this design solution, we briefly review the centralized approach before looking at what potential changes edge computing will bring to the factory floor. We also show a digital IO IC that allows for smaller, more adaptable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) more suited to this developing architecture.

Nano Pulse Control Clears Issues in the Automotive and Industrial Markets

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

In EV and industrial applications, converting from high voltages on the power side to low voltages on the electronics side poses a big challenge. In order to convert big voltage drops efficiently, you need very narrow pulse widths. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Satya Dixit from ROHM about new Nano Pulse Control technology that changes the game in DC to DC conversion.
