eSilicon Signs Multi-Year Agreement With Synopsys

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Dec 16, 2009 -- eSilicon Corporation, a pioneering semiconductor value chain producer (VCP), today announced it has signed a multi-year agreement with Synopsys that includes access to the Galaxy™ Implementation Platform, the Discovery™ Verification Platform, DesignWare® IP and services. By engaging with Synopsys for multiple areas of the business, eSilicon benefits from having a single-vendor solution with access to Synopsys technical experts, ultimately reducing risk and speeding time to market for its end customers.

eSilicon also joins the Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program, enabling them to have access to a broad portfolio of high-quality, silicon-proven DesignWare IP such as PCI Express®, USB, DDR, HDMI and SATA. In addition, eSilicon gains access to Synopsys' next generation of connectivity IP as it becomes available.

Being a member of Synopsys' IP OEM Partner Program enables eSilicon to focus engineering talent on their core differentiation and not on project-based IP procurement. The Synopsys IP OEM Partner Program extends beyond the traditional customer-supplier relationship by providing the necessary resources and infrastructure to help the members deliver first-rate support to their end customers and easily create successful designs. Specialized on-site, in-depth product and integration training led by Synopsys engineers enhances partner expertise and the end-user experience.

Accessing the technology in any given EDA tool, IP, wafer or package is well-suited for a VCP. A company making one or two chips a year cannot stretch the limits compared to a VCP nor leverage the special features in any given tool or raw material for both performance and economics. VCPs solve these and many problems.

"Every company that joins our value chain represents an extension of our commitment to technology excellence, quality and value," said Patrick Soheili, eSilicon vice president of marketing and business development. "Through this multi-year agreement, Synopsys brings a high-quality and silicon-proven IP portfolio and EDA tools. We are honored to be part of their IP OEM Partner Program. Together we help fabless semiconductor companies (FSCs) as well as system OEMs end-customers create highly differentiated products in record time."

"Collaborating with eSilicon, a Value Chain Producer, enables customers to benefit from high-quality SoC designs incorporating Synopsys' tools and DesignWare IP solutions that have been proven in a wide range of products and across multiple process nodes," said John Chilton, senior vice-president and general manager for the Marketing and Business Development group at Synopsys. "By leveraging leading infrastructure, products, services and well-established supply chain, eSilicon's approach to the development of complex SoCs helps end customers get products to the market faster and with significantly less risk."
