Synopsys joins the AVnu Alliance
WORLD: Synopsys has been unveiled as the latest member of the AVnu Alliance, reinforcing its commitment to developing and promoting the growth of AVB and TSN (time-sensitive networking). Synopsis joins an existing body of nearly 80 manufacturers.
‘By adding members such as Synopsys that can add to the complete AVB/TSN value-chain, we are strengthening the solid foundation for the growing AVnu-certified ecosystem,’ enthused Yong Kim, AVnu Alliance chairman. ‘Synopsys comes to the Alliance with a wealth of experience in the industry, which will benefit our broad market segments and the alliance mission.’
‘As a leading provider of interface IP, Synopsys delivers silicon-proven DesignWare Ethernet IP solutions for integration into a wide range of networking SoCs,’ commented John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP and prototyping at Synopsys. ‘Joining the AVnu Alliance reinforces our commitment to supporting the ecosystem with certified and interoperable IP solutions that enable designers to mitigate integration risk and accelerate time-to-market.’
In addition to certification, the Alliance supplies members with access to compliance tools, testing plans and test suites enabling early internal testing of products. They may also benefit from participating in member-only ‘plug fests’, providing a hands-on opportunity for engineers to test connectivity and interoperability.
