Synopsys and Gowin Semiconductor ink multi-year OEM agreement for FPGA design software

MOUNTAIN VIEW, USA: Synopsys Inc. has announced a multi-year OEM agreement with Gowin Semiconductor for Synopsys Synplify Pro FPGA synthesis tools.

The agreement will enable Gowin customers to significantly improve synthesis runtimes and achieve higher quality of results for timing, area and power for Gowin GW2A/3S FPGAs. Gowin Semiconductor has partnered with Synopsys to integrate Synplify Pro into its GOWIN design suite for their GW2A/3S FPGAs.

"Our customers require a high performance, high-quality FPGA synthesis flow to help them implement their FPGA designs in hardware, while meeting tight project timelines," said Ning Song, chief technical officer and VP of FPGA software at Gowin Semiconductor.

"The integration of our FPGA software flow with Synplify Pro enables FPGA designers using our GW2A FPGA architecture to achieve the highest quality of results for timing, area and runtime."

Gowin's GW2A/3S FPGAs incorporate highly programmable logic, block SRAM and DSP blocks optimized for performance and power. The GW2A architecture is optimized with Synplify Pro synthesis software, providing designers with the highest performance results with fewer iterations.
Designers can take advantage of the wide range of device sizes and I/O capabilities to deliver products for consumer, industrial, communication and computing markets.

"Today's FPGA designs require advanced synthesis tools that deliver automation, faster turnaround times and more predictable timing closure," said John Koeter, VP of marketing for IP and prototyping at Synopsys.

"Synopsys Synplify FPGA synthesis software is the industry standard for producing high-performance, cost-effective FPGA designs. Integration of Synplify Pro with the GOWIN design suite will help Gowin customers quickly create optimized FPGA implementations that meet precise timing and quality requirements."
