Virtual Prototyping Services

Tools and Modeling Methodology Training
Productivity comes from the proper usage of the tools and methodology. The tools and modeling methodology training ensures that users understand and maximize the use of the tool features as well as are familiar with the methodology concepts including SystemC™, TLM and SCML, as well as assisting in model and virtual prototype creation, architecture study project planning, use case traffic capture, architecture model creation, simulation, and analysis of results.

Architecture Design CoStart Services

More than tool-clicks, Synopsys CoStart services provide methodology guidelines and examples for Platform Architect including comprehensive design data illustrations that help educate users on Synopsys' state-of-the-art multicore architecture design flow. CoStart services provide an intense knowledge transfer, while assisting in architecture study project planning, use case traffic capture, architecture model creation, simulation, and analysis of results.

Model Creation

Synopsys can deliver expertise in the creation of models and subsystems by complementing your own modeling team. If you require additional bandwidth or if you simply would like to rely on Synopsys’ modeling expertise for a specific part of your design, our model creation services will help you maximize the time to availability of your virtual prototype.

Full Virtual Prototype Creation

Synopsys delivers full virtual prototype creation services to companies who do not or do not want to have their own modeling team. Synopsys takes full ownership of modeling, assembling and delivering a virtual prototype to your end user teams. Such services can also include the integration of software tools, environment models and test environment, the customization of the virtual prototype tools for debug and analysis to meet your end-user specific needs.
