Foundry-Certified, Full-Lifecycle Reliability Signoff Prevents Over-Design and Costly Late-Stage ECOs for Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Medical and 5G Designs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —

Highlights for this Announcement:

  • Unified workflow of proven technologies provides high-performance reliability analysis across the product lifecycle compliant with standards such as ISO 26262
  • Integration with PrimeSim™ Continuum solution enables seamless use of industry-leading simulators for electromigration/IR drop analysis, MOS aging, high-sigma Monte Carlo, analog fault and other reliability analyses
  • Integration with PrimeWave™ design environment provides a consistent reliability verification workflow enabling weakness analysis, results visualization and what-if exploration

To accelerate time-to-reliability compliance of hyper-convergent designs targeting mission-critical applications, Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today shared that several leading semiconductor companies have adopted its new PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution that unifies production-proven, foundry-certified reliability analysis technologies for analog, mixed-signal and full-custom designs. Integration with PrimeSim Continuum solution provides a rich set of industry-leading simulation and analysis technologies to accelerate reliability analysis across the product lifecycle. With the exhaustive reliability assessment for early life, normal life and end-of-life failures, design engineers can minimize costly late-stage engineering change orders (ECOs) and defect escapes, and improve safety, reliability and overall design performance with better silicon correlation for next-generation, domain-specific architectures targeting complex automotive, aerospace and defense, medical and 5G applications.

“A more holistic approach is needed to address the challenges with today’s hyper-converged and mission-critical IC designs, including comprehensive electrical and manufacturing reliability and thermal assessments,” said Raja Tabet, senior vice president of the Custom Design and Manufacturing Group at Synopsys. “PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution represents a pioneering approach to safety and reliability analysis, reimagining design for high reliability. Part of the PrimeSim Continuum family of solutions, PrimeSim Reliability Analysis solution accelerates full-lifecycle reliability signoff, enabling faster time-to-results and higher designer…
