Synopsys has been selected as a TSMC Open Innovation Platform (OIP) Partner of the Year, earning five awards spanning digital, analog, multi-die system, radio frequency (RF) design, and interface IP.

The long-standing collaboration between the two companies continues to deliver production-proven solutions, including certified design flows, powered by the full-stack AI-driven EDA suite, that help mutual customers accelerate the development and silicon success of innovative AI, automotive, and high-performance computing designs. Synopsys solutions were featured in an unprecedented number of presentations at the 2023 North America TSMC OIP Ecosystem forum, highlighting strong collaboration with TSMC and partners on proven solutions for TSMC's advanced process and 3DFabric technologies.

"TSMC and Synopsys are making huge leaps to provide engineering teams with innovative solutions to successfully develop complex designs on the latest advanced process nodes," said Dan Kochpatcharin, head of Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC. "The partner awards recognize the significant contributions made by the TSMC OIP ecosystem partners like Synopsys to advance the next generation of high-performance designs on TSMC's technologies, with massively improved quality of results and time to results."

"Being recognized by TSMC underscores Synopsys' commitment to providing the industry with leading solutions including, a full-stack AI-driven EDA suite, and silicon-proven IP solutions that help chipmakers bring differentiated products to market faster," said Sanjay Bali, vice president of Strategy and Product Management for the EDA Group at Synopsys. "Our longstanding collaboration with TSMC continues to deliver new EDA and IP innovations that enable the semiconductor industry to efficiently transition to 2nm and multi-die systems, while also facilitating AI-based analog design migration. These significant technology advancements help our customers meet and beat their design and productivity targets."

Over the past year, the companies' collaboration has yielded impactful design solutions for mutual customers, garnering five awards including:

  • Development of 2nm and N3P Design Infrastructure: Synopsys' production-proven digital and analog design flows certified on TSMC N2 and N3P process technology enhance the quality of results for high-performance computing, mobile, and AI designs.
  • Interface IP: Synopsys' broad, silicon-proven interface IP portfolio on the TSMC N3E process, with a fast path to the N3P process, provides a competitive edge for chipmakers looking to reduce integration risk and accelerate time to first-pass silicon success.
  • Development of mmWave Design Solutions: Synopsys RF reference design flow, developed in collaboration with Ansys and Keysight, provides an open, front-to-back design flow with performance, power, and productivity benefits.
  • Development of 3Dblox Design Prototyping Solution: Synopsys's comprehensive Multi-Die System solution combined with 3Dblox standard enables early architecture exploration and feasibility analysis, efficient die/package co-design, robust die-to-die connectivity, and improved manufacturing and reliability.
  • Partner Collaboration: Synopsys, Ansys, and Keysight were recognized for their unprecedented collaboration to develop the RF reference flows for TSMC's leading N16, N6 and N4P processes.
