Synopsys Speeds Design Process For Corrent Corporation's Complex Encryption Chips

2/13/2002 - Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), the technology leader for complex integrated circuit (IC) design, today announced that it supported Corrent Corporation's successful tapeout and sampling of the Socket Armor(TM) family. These processors support both Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) standards. The collaboration enabled Corrent, a fabless semiconductor company, to announce that it was first-to-market with integrated gigabit-speed security system-on-chips (SoCs)-just seven months after unveiling plans to design a high-speed network security architecture from the ground up. Synopsys Professional Services worked with Corrent to establish a complete RTL to GDSII deep sub-micron design flow, which together with Synopsys tools and design assistance, were integral to design optimization and timing closure for the seven million gate, 0.15 micron, 150 MHz devices.
