Under an expanded strategic partnership, Synopsys will enable a range of its standardized interface IP portfolio on Intel’s leading-edge process technologies, including Intel 3 and Intel 18A. This will give Intel’s foundry customers access toIPs built on Intel advanced process technologies, and will help them accelerate design execution and project schedules for system-on-chips (SoCs).
Intel said the collaboration is an important milestone in its IDM 2.0 strategy, which is a multiyear transformation to regain and strengthen technology leadership, manufacturing scale and long-term growth.
“Marking another important step in our IDM 2.0 strategy, this transaction will foster a vibrant foundry ecosystem by allowing designers to fully realize the advantages of Intel 3 and Intel 18A process technologies and quickly bring differentiated products to market,” said Stuart Pann, senior vice president and general manager of IFS. “Synopsys brings a strong track record of delivering high-quality IP to a broad customer base, and this agreement will help accelerate the availability of IP on advanced IFS nodes for mutual customers.
