Synopsys has announced that Picochip has successfully achieved first silicon success using Synopsys’ Lynx Design System and Galaxy Implementation Platform in the design of its next-generation 40 nm PC3008 picoXcell femtocell chip optimised for high-volume, cost-sensitive consumer applications.

According to Synopsis, the Lynx Design System enabled Picochip’s engineering team to quickly and efficiently upgrade to a pre-tested 40nm Galaxy-based production design flow, saving significant time and effort compared to developing their own flow. In addition, Lynx’s Foundry-Ready System enabled Picochip’s engineers to begin design work within two weeks of initial deployment, accelerating their project start date by an estimated eight weeks.
