Synopsys Adds New Power Analysis Solution to ZeBu Platform

Read MoreHide Full Article

Synopsys, Inc. (SNPS - Free Report) recently introduced ZeBu Power Analyzer solution which adds multi-threaded power analysis capabilities to ZeBu Server 4 emulation platform.

The solution will enable the use of realistic software workloads in order significantly reduce the risk of missing critical power issues, and deliver faster results.

Growing requirement for high-capacity software-driven power analysis is stemming from the growing challenges faced by designers to create next generation SoCs.

Semiconductor company, MediaTek will be incorporated into the Synopsys PrimePower power signoff flow. This will allow SoC design teams to accurately identify and solve power issues.

MediaTek claims that it has successfully aided the company’s 5G-related products designing.

Jerry Wang, Sr. Director, Computing and Artificial Intelligence Technology Group at MediaTek said, “ZeBu Power Analyzer's software-driven power analysis lets us optimize critical components, such as GPUs, using realistic software workloads to achieve results that are a few thousand times faster than traditional power analysis flows.”

Strong Product Portfolio Drives Synopsys

Synopsys is benefiting from growth across its product groups. Given the growing need for enhanced security measures due to the rising security threats in interconnected systems laden with software, demand for the company’s solutions is shooting up.

Rising impact of AI, 5G, IoT and big data is boosting investments in new compute and machine-learning architectures, which is a tailwind for Synopsys. Robust growth in software-based verification at both traditional semiconductor and emerging system companies focused on own in-house design is an upside.

Notably, Fusion Design Platform, launched last November, is witnessing high demand, which is helping it generate strong results. The company’s Verification Continuum platform is steadily witnessing huge demand and competitive wins.

Further, ZeBu Server 4 product is generating a broad-based adoption by customers’ designing storage, networking and AI chips.

In the second quarter of 2019, Synopsys’ Semiconductor & System Design revenues, which comprised 90% of the total revenues, jumped 5% year over year on the back of strength across the board.
