Synopsys Increases Designs For Multi-Die With HBM3 IP and Verification Solutions, First for Industry

Today sees the announcement from Synopsys, Inc., over their newest technology and solutions for chip designers. As an industry first, the company has released their newest HBM3 IP solutions, consisting of PHY, controller and IP for verification of 2.5D multi-die packages. This technology will further increase the development of minimal power and high-bandwidth specifications for SoC architectures aimed at efficient and high-processing AI, computing, and applications for graphics.

Synopsys' DesignWare controller and IP pushes "high memory bandwidth at up to 921 GB/s." A first for the chip industry, Synopsys Verification IP and solution utilizes coverage internally as well as verification standards, HBM3 memory options for ZeBu emulators (off-the-shelf), and a unique HAPS prototype design for their systems to verify information from HMB3 IP to system-on-chips. The company increases developments for their HBM3 designs, causing the 3DIC Compiler platform for multi-die use for a "fully integrated architectural exploration, implementation and system-level analysis solution."

"Synopsys continues to address the design and verification requirements of data-intensive SoCs with high-quality memory interface IP and verification solutions for the most advanced protocols like HBM3, DDR5 and LPDDR5. The complete HBM3 IP and verification solutions enable designers to meet increasing bandwidth, latency and power requirements while accelerating verification closure, all from a single, trusted provider."

—John Koeter, Synopsys Senior Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for IP

Synopsys DesignWare HBM3 PHY IP is a 5-nm process, and is available as pre-made or customer configurable PHY, operating at speeds of 7200 Mbps per pin pn chip, improving efficiency of power  and supports as high as "four active operating states," allowing for dynamic scaling frequencies. DesignWare uses an micro bump array that is optomized to assist in minimizing the area. Support for the interposer trace lengths allows manufacturers more room in PHY placements to not have it  impact its performance.

Synopsys' broad DesignWare IP portfolio includes logic libraries, embedded memories, PVT sensors, embedded test, analog IP, interface IP, security IP, embedded processors and subsystems. To accelerate prototyping, software development and integration of IP into SoCs, Synopsys' IP Accelerated initiative offers IP prototyping kits, IP software development kits and IP subsystems. Our extensive investment in IP quality and comprehensive technical support enable designers to reduce integration risk and accelerate time-to-market.
