Samsung SARC Selects Synopsys as Primary Verification Solution for Advanced Mobile Processor Designs

Comprehensive Synopsys Platform Enables Accelerated Verification of High-Performance, Low-Power CPU, GPU and System IP for Mobile SoCs

BangaloreSept. 7, 2017– Synopsys, Inc. today announced that Samsung SARC has selected the Synopsys Verification Continuum™ platform as its primary verification solution for their high-performance, low-power CPU, GPU and system IP designs. Samsung SARC has deployed the Verification Continuum platform for emulation, simulation, verification IP, debug, static verification, formal verification and low-power verification. Synopsys’ leadership position in these critical verification technology areas, combined with native integrations among these products, has enabled Samsung SARC to meet aggressive goals in verification productivity and time-to-market.

“Our mission is to develop the best CPU, GPU and system IP for mobile SoC applications, which requires a highly competitive feature set, excellent overall performance and very low power consumption under extremely tight schedules,” said Keith Hawkins, corporate vice president, Samsung SARC. “Synopsys is uniquely positioned to address the needs of our leading-edge designs with a depth and breadth of verification technologies along with strong domain expertise and excellent technical support.”

With the exponential growth of verification complexity in mobile applications, achieving verification closure requires a broad set of technologies including high-performance emulation, advanced simulation, verification IP, advanced debug, static and formal verification, low-power verification and coverage closure. To address this substantial complexity, Synopsys continues to have the largest R&D investment in verification spanning the entire verification flow. This includes industry-leading ZeBu® emulation, VCS® simulation, VC verification IP, Verdi®advanced debug, SpyGlass® RTL signoff solutions as well as next-generation VC Formal verification solutions. The native integration of these solutions further enables design teams to achieve faster performance, lower power and higher productivity for accelerated verification closure.

“CPU and GPU designs for mobile SoCs have some of the most advanced verification requirements,” said Manoj Gandhi, executive vice president and general manager for the Synopsys Verification Group. “Long-term collaborations with industry leaders in this space have been key to our continued leadership and innovation in verification. Through this partnership with Samsung SARC, we look forward to advancing the state-of-the-art in mobile processor verification.”
