Synopsys Lynx Foundry Ready System for Common Platform

Synopsys introduced a system-on-chip (SoC) design solution optimized for the Common Platform alliance (CPA) 28-nanometer(nm) high-k metal gate (HKMG) technology. The Synopsys Lynx Foundry Ready System for the CPA 28nm LP will be available this quarter. The Lynx Foundry Ready system for CPA 32nm LP, CPA 32nm and 28nm LP foundry reference flows based upon the Galaxy Implementation Platform and front-end views for the CPA 32nm and 28nm LP Synopsys DesignWare PHY IP are available now.

Lynx Design System Features

  • Low power, high-performance 28nm design solution
  • Optimized for the Common Platform alliance (CPA) 28-nanometer(nm) high-k metal gate (HKMG) technology
  • Based on Synopsys’ Lynx Design System and its Galaxy Implementation Platform-enabled flow with Synopsys DesignWare Interface IP
  • Pre-validated with ARM Artisan Physical IP and the ARM Cortex-A9 processor
  • Foundry-Ready System technology plug-in
  • Advanced visualization capabilities for managing chip design that enable easy flow configuration and execution and on-demand project metrics
  • Scripts, templates and documentation based on Lynx’s pre-validated production design flow, using 28-nm HKMG foundry technology files and ARM Artisan standard cell logic and memory physical IP, to expedite project setup and design start
  • Baseline process-specific methodologies, representative settings, design checks and guidelines that speed design closure and tape-out to CPA foundries
  • High performance, low power-optimized implementation for the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor
  • Synopsys DesignWare interface IP, including the USB 2.0 On-the-Go (OTG), HDMI 1.4 and DDR 3/2 PHYs for CPA 28-nm LP technology
