Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, today announced that eSilicon and Brite Semiconductor have joined the Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program along with renewed members Global Unichip and Open-Silicon. Through the IP OEM Partner Program, members standardise on Synopsys' broad portfolio of siliconproven DesignWare® interface and analog IP such as USB, PCI Express®, DDR, HDMI, SATA, Ethernet, MIPI IP including 3GDigRF, CSI-2, D-PHY, data converters and audio codecs for their systemonchip (SoC) designs. By enabling member companies to access a wide range of interoperable IP from a single supplier, Synopsys helps them and their endcustomers speed timetomarket and reduce risk for their complex SoC designs.

"With the growing trend towards outsourcing, Synopsys understands the need for an IP business model that enables eSilicon to deliver highquality products to endcustomers," said Patrick Soheili, vice president of marketing and business development at eSilicon. "As the pioneer of the Value Chain Producer business model, we have been using DesignWare IP for many years to identify the right match of IP for our broad customer base and this partner program is a formalisation of that arrangement. Synopsys' proven DesignWare IP combined with eSilicon's proven firstpass silicon track record enables our customers to quickly ramp to volume production."

Synopsys enables fabless ASIC companies and supply chain partners to deliver rightfirsttime designs to their customers and help them meet their critical timetomarket windows. By providing the necessary resources and infrastructure, Synopsys enables the IP OEM Program members to deliver firstrate support to their end customers and easily create successful designs. Specialised onsite, indepth product and integration training led by Synopsys engineers enables the partners to have an unprecedented level of expertise, resulting in firstpass silicon success.

"After evaluating IP vendors based on breadth of portfolio, quality of IP and technical support, we determined that Synopsys came out ahead in all areas," said Thomas Xu, vice president of engineering, at Brite Semiconductor. "As a member of Synopsys' IP OEM Partner Program, we are also able to develop a deeper level of expertise with their products, which will allow us to quickly integrate their IP into our customers' designs with less risk and improved timetomarket."

"Being a member of the IP OEM Partner Program has been instrumental in enabling us to quickly deliver differentiated designs to our endcustomers," said Keh-Ching Huang, marketing director at Global Unichip. "Global Unichip has been focusing on providing service to extremely complex projects in advanced technology nodes. Our continued membership is a testament to the value provided by this program and demonstrates our continued commitment to speeding timetomarket and reducing risk for our customers."

"As an initial member of the Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program, Open-Silicon recognises how a tighter working relationship between IP design and ASIC integration drives quality. Our close ties with Synopsys' knowledgeable technical support team have helped Open-Silicon revolutionise the ASIC industry and drive our OpenMODEL(TM) ASIC development process," said Scott Houghton, vicepresident of marketing and business development at Open-Silicon. "This partnership has enabled us to deliver an excellent integration experience for our end customers."

"The expansion of the program membership demonstrates the success of the Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program and the value it provides to our members and their endcustomers," said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for the Solutions Group at Synopsys.
