Synopsys Physical Compiler An Integral Part of Design Flow for Texas Instruments

5/13/2002 - Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), the technology leader for complex integrated circuit (IC) design, today announced that Texas Instruments has successfully used Physical Compiler, Synopsys' Physical Synthesis tool, to tape out multiple versions of its flagship TMS320C64x digital signal processor (DSP) chip. These next-generation 600 megahertz (MHz) DSPs, shipping today from TI, mark a milestone in performance for the company and will become the platform for most of TI's future DSP products. The TMS320C64x DSP enables full convergence of video, voice and data on all broadband networks for TI's large base station systems market. Using Physical Compiler, TI engineers were able to save two months in design cycle time and rapidly achieve timing closure on the 0.13 micron technology with 64 million transistors.
