Synopsys Announces New Hybrid Prototyping Solution

Synopsys integrated hybrid prototyping solution

Synopsys introduced an integrated hybrid prototyping solution. The out-of-box solution features Synopsys’ Virtualizer virtual prototyping and Synopsys’ HAPS FPGA-based prototyping. By integrating the strengths of Virtualizer virtual prototyping with HAPS FPGA-based prototyping using the UMRBus physical link, Synopsys enables designers to develop fully operational SoC prototypes much faster and earlier in the design cycle, and accelerate software development and full system validation. The Synopsys hybrid prototyping solution is available now to early adopters.

Synopsys Virtualizer Virtual Prototyping Solution

Synopsys introduced their Virtualizer virtual prototyping solution. Prototypes created with Virtualizer accelerate software development schedules by up to nine months, and increase productivity by up to 5x over traditional approaches to teams performing software development, hardware/software integration, system-on-chip (SoC) verification and system validation. Virtualizer is available now. Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs), which includes a subset of Virtualizer features, is also available now.
