The DesignWare IP for TSMC's N5 process will enable designers to achieve aggressive performance, density, and power targets for their mobile and cloud computing designs. This collaboration reinforces the longstanding relationship between the two companies to provide designers with the high-quality IP needed to lower risk, differentiate their system-on-chips (SoCs), and accelerate their time-to-market.
According to Suk Lee, senior director of the Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC, the collaboration between the two companies is helping “designers to achieve an acceleration on their advanced mobile and cloud computing SoCs while gaining the full performance and power benefits of TSMC's newest and industry-leading process technology."
"As the leading provider of interface IP, Synopsys continues to make significant investments in developing high-quality IP on the latest process technologies, so designers can gain the performance, power, and area advantages that help differentiate their SoCs," said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP at Synopsys. "Our collaboration with TSMC on the development of Synopsys' DesignWare IP for the N5P process will enable designers to achieve their aggressive design goals and accelerate their project schedules in today's fast-moving markets."
The DesignWare Interface and Foundation IP for TSMC's N5P process are scheduled to be available starting in Q4 of 2019.
