Synopsys STAR-RCXT Extraction Product Delivers 2X Performance Boost With Dual-Core Support

Increases Customer Productivity Through Multi-Core Technology

Mountain View CA, (PresseBox) - Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design and manufacturing, today announced that its Star-RCXT(tm) parasitic extraction product offers customers a near 2X performance boost over the previous release with dual-core support as part of the company's comprehensive multi-core initiative. The Star-RCXT product works seamlessly with popular commercial grid computing management software maximizing efficiency across multi-core processors as well as multi-processor compute farms.

"We are extensively investing in multi-core compute platforms to take advantage of the inherent performance scaling with a smaller power footprint. We are confident Synopsys has the ability to provide excellent design and analysis products that complement our multi-core investments," said Sribalan Santhanam, vice president of engineering at P.A. Semi. "Star-RCXT's multi-core processing, along with the new dual-core licensing feature, offers a highly cost-effective solution that results in overall improved designer productivity for the latest multi-core compute platforms."

Star-RCXT multi-core processing consists of easy-to-setup compute resource allocation, automated design partitioning to multiple processor cores, and automatic failure recovery for a superior fault-tolerant server environment. The dual-core license support delivers an average 1.8X performance boost using a single license with two processor cores, and 3X performance boost using two licenses with four processor cores. The dual-core licensing feature will apply to both the Star-RCXT and Star-RCXT VX products and is expected to be generally available to customers with the June 2008 release.

"Support for multi-core compute platforms enables the Star-RCXT extraction product to deliver superior productivity and excellent price-performance value," said Bijan Kiani, vice president of Product Marketing at Synopsys. "The Star-RCXT product continues to set new standards in providing solutions for customers' evolving needs. Multi-core support reflects Synopsys' commitment to provide a comprehensive solution across its core EDA and design-for-manufacturability product portfolios."
