The Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyÂ has chosenÂ SynopsysÂ to develop a technology to emulate system-on-chips as part of DARPA’sÂ Electronics Resurgence Initiative.
Synopsys said Wednesday it will collaborate withÂ Lockheed Martin and Analog DevicesÂ on the Posh Open Source Hardware program that aims to improve the quality ofÂ mixed-signal SoC platforms intended for defense and aerospace use.
DARPA seeks to establishÂ a foundation of intellectual property building blocks through the POSH project.
The agency noted that ERI will focus on addressing specialized hardware applications that include emulation, artificial intelligence, photonics and security.
Synopsys and its partners will use the company’sÂ ZeBuÂ Server emulator in efforts toÂ host a converged platform designed to verify analog and digital IP cores and SoCs.
