Synopsys acquires Ciranova, strengthens custom IC design solution

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 2 Aug. 2012. Synopsys Inc. (NASDAQ:SNPS), a provider of software and IP used in the design, verification, and manufacture of electronic components and systems, has completed the acquisition of Ciranova, a privately held electronic design automation (EDA) company.

Synopsys officials intend to use Ciranova's technology to accelerate advancements in its custom integrated circuit (IC) design solutions and enable design teams to better meet the productivity challenges created by the complexity of nanometer designs.

Ciranova is focused on delivering productivity improvements in custom IC design by reducing the time and effort needed to develop transistor-level layout on advanced nodes, says a spokesperson.

"Adding Ciranova's technology and engineering talent to the Synopsys custom IC solution team supports our goal to make continual gains in productivity for designers working on advanced custom IC designs. This acquisition creates an opportunity to deliver productivity gains by integrating Ciranova's Helix placer with Synopsys' custom design solution," says Paul Lo, senior vice president and general manager of Synopsys' Analog Mixed-Signal Group. "Additionally, the combination of Synopsys and Ciranova, both founding members of the Interoperable PDK Libraries (IPL) Alliance, underscores Synopsys' commitment to enabling an interoperable Process Design Kit (iPDK) ecosystem. To ensure the long-term growth of the iPDK ecosystem, Synopsys will continue providing Ciranova's PyCell Studio and PyCell usage at no charge."
