Mentor acquires Oasys: Hitting a Home Run with Synthesis

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

 

Who says the last week before the holidays needs to be dull: Mentor Graphics has just announced it’s acquiring Oasys Design Systems.

* The Money: “Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.”

There’s a surprise.

* The Technology: “Oasys RealTime is a next-generation RTL physical synthesis technology [that] enables faster turnaround times and the capacity to synthesize the entire top level of the largest designs, all while being physically aware for better correlation with physical design. Its ‘placement first’ synthesis methodology and integrated RTL floorplanning capability enable physical backend issues to be analyzed and addressed at RTL stages before hand-off to the back-end groups for physical design implementation.”

Turns out the conversation [read “innovation”] in EDA around synthesis, P&R and whack-a-mole is still underway.

* Mentor’s Interest in Synthesis: “This acquisition aligns with Mentor’s goal to deliver a best-in-class digital implementation platform to address the performance, power and area challenges at advanced nodes.”

Interesting.
