Reading time ( words)

Siemens PLM Software and Synopsys, Inc. today announced that they have agreed to collaborate on a wide range of electronic design automation (EDA) product interoperability projects for the benefit of their mutual customers. The collaboration spans a number of EDA domains from design to verification.

“With the increasing complexity in electronics driven by AI, automotive, industrial and other high-impact markets, semiconductor and systems companies are grappling with design challenges from the roots of silicon all the way up to the application software,” said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. “We look forward to working with Siemens to provide increasingly powerful EDA and related solutions to our mutual customers.” 

“Our customers are rapidly adopting electronic design automation as part of their digitalization strategy. Interoperability is a critical aspect of enabling customers not only in EDA but in the broader context of system development,” stated Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO of Siemens PLM Software. “Siemens is very committed to EDA and we are looking forward to our interoperability partnership with Synopsys.”

In addition, Synopsys and Siemens have settled all outstanding patent litigation between Synopsys and Mentor Graphics. The settlement includes mutual seven-year patent cross-licenses between Synopsys and Siemens, and between Synopsys and Mentor Graphics.

The State of the Electronic Design Automation Nation

07/06/2016 | Abby Monaco, Intercept Technology
We are the automation nation. We are the high-speed demons, the low-frequency artists, the mixed-signal designers that make up the electronic design automation industry. We spend most of our working lives behind software, delivered to our fingertips with the promise of making things easier, faster, better, and getting us to our deadlines ever faster.

EDA Tools: Automation vs. Control

06/13/2016 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
Stephen V. Chavez, CID+, is currently the lead PCB designer for the Electronic Systems Center division of UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS). He's also a frequent speaker at the IPC APEX EXPO Design Forum. I caught up with Stephen and asked for his thoughts on the EDA tools of today, and whether he’d prefer to have more control vs. more automation.
