Description: 

Synopsys is the leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and services used to design complex integrated circuits (Ics), field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and systems-on-chips (SoCs) for the global semiconductor and electronics industries. Synopsys solutions include pre-designed and pre-verified blocks of intellectual property (IP) that can be easily inserted into design flows, as well as technology to address yield and manufacturing issues early in the design process. Compute power, multi-media, graphics and communications features are converging in consumer products, putting additional pressure on engineers to create designs that are especially sensitive to cost, power consumption and size. Synopsys gives its customers a competitive edge in bringing the best products to market quickly while reducing costs and schedule risk.

In February 2012, Magma was acquired by Synopsys. Magma's electronic design automation software products are used by semiconductor manufacturers to design some of the most complex and highest-performing integrated circuits being made today. See the profile page for more information.
