Synopsys SNPS recently unveiled Synopsys.da, an extension to its existing Electronic Design Automation (“EDA”) Solution called Synopsis.ai. This new upgrade will allow chipmakers to obtain actionable design insights to uncover power, performance and area (PPA) opportunities in all stages of the integrated circuit (IC) chip development process.
Synopsys' EDA Solution has been used for chip-design optimization. The company has been focusing on enhancing its capabilities by introducing AI-driven tests and verification flows.
With the addition of this new extension, the EDA is expected to gain the capability to analyze extensive streams of data related to fab equipment process control. This analysis will result in enhanced operational efficiencies as well as the optimization of product quality and fab yield.

Synopsys benefits from an expanding partner base that includes the likes of Intel INTC, Advanced Micro Devices AMD, Juniper Networks, Realtek, Teradici, NetLogic Microsystems, Toshiba and Wolfson.
