BANGALORE, INDIA: EDA firm, Ciranova has been acquired by Synopsys but neither of the companies have disclosed the size of the deal. Synopsys has acquired Ciranova inorder to utilise Ciranova’s technology to accelerate advanced developments in its custom integrated circuit (IC) design solutions.

As per Synopsys, Ciranova is focused on delivering productivity improvements in custom IC design by reducing the time and effort needed to develop transistor-level layout on advanced nodes.
The company also said that, this acquisition will enable design teams to meet various challenges created by complexity of nanometre designs.

Paul Lo, senior vice president and general manager of Synopsys’ Analog Mixed-Signal Group said, “Adding Ciranova’s technology and engineering talent to the Synopsys custom IC solution team supports our goal to make continual gains in productivity for designers working on advanced custom IC designs. This acquisition creates an opportunity to deliver productivity gains by integrating Ciranova’s Helix placer with Synopsys’ custom design solution.”

"The combination of Synopsys and Ciranova — both founding members of the Interoperable PDK Libraries (IPL) Alliance — underscores Synopsys’ commitment to enabling an interoperable Process Design Kit (iPDK) ecosystem. To ensure the long-term growth of the iPDK ecosystem, Synopsys will continue providing Ciranova’s PyCell Studio and PyCell usage at no charge,” he further explained.
