Aaroh Labs is poised for exciting things. Located in Pune in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, the company specializes in advanced-node semiconductor designs for market segments including storage, data centers, computing, and the internet of things (IoT). Its team is dedicated to creating differentiation through its turnkey offerings.
The company’s engineers offer expertise in several key areas:
To achieve its progressive goals, Aaroh Labs needed design and verification solutions that could support its quest to quickly get advanced-node SoCs off the ground and into its customers’ end products.
Applications such as storage, data centers, and the IoT are driving increased complexity in SoCs. Power, performance, and area (PPA) targets are more aggressive than ever, as is the need to get products to market quickly. The landscape in chip design has changed, too, as electronic components become more ubiquitous. These days, traditional semiconductor companies are being joined by systems companies in developing SoCs. However, not all of these systems companies have extensive chip design teams. For these businesses, it makes sense to work with a design house like Aaroh Labs, as it allows them to focus on their core competencies to create differentiated products. Aaroh Labs’ customers typically provide the specs and the company’s engineers fulfill their requirements in the form of an architecture, RTL code, or a GDSII file.
Seeking an EDA vendor with a solid track record in enabling designs with power efficiency and high performance, Aaroh Labs turned to Synopsys to replace its incumbent design and verification flow. The company is using Synopsys Fusion Design Platform™, Custom Design Platform, and Verification Continuum® Platform to develop its turnkey semiconductor offerings.
“Aaroh Labs requires a predictable and reliable digital implementation, custom design, and verification infrastructure for customers working on next-generation data center, storage, computing, and IoT designs,” said Ranjit Yahswante, Aaroh Lab’s co-founder and CTO. “Synopsys provided us with an integrated, high-performance digital implementation, custom design and verification solution that enables reduced power consumption, successful design closure, and timely project delivery. A trusted supplier, Synopsys delivers the highest technical expertise and innovative technology platforms that address new design and verification challenges, helping us provide our customers with differentiated and superior products.”
Aaroh Lab’s focus on designing large, complex, digital, multi-core chips stems from decades of extensive expertise configuring leading processor architectures and targeting advanced process nodes from leading foundries. The team behind Aaroh Labs has deep experience in the semiconductor industry and, as a result, its members have worked with Synopsys while at previous organizations. With this history and the Synopsys reputation for high-quality, integrated solutions, the company is pleased to grow its business with a Synopsys RTL-to-GDSII flow.
The Fusion Design Platform is AI-enhanced and cloud-ready, delivering full-flow quality-of-results and time-to-results. The digital design products share integrated engines across synthesis, place-and-route, and signoff. The platform includes:
The Custom Design Platform accelerates the development of robust analog and mixed-signal designs through a unified suite of design and verification tools. The platform features:
Last, but not least, the Verification Continuum Platform provides solutions to help designers find SoC bugs earlier and faster, bring up software earlier, and validate the entire system. The platform includes:
As Aaroh Labs grows its business, its team will continue striving to deliver the highest quality possible with predictability and on-time delivery using best-in-class flows, methodologies, and automation. Synopsys is pleased to be a part of the company’s journey. With a wider range of businesses either moving into chip design or requiring electronic components for their products, companies like Aaroh Labs are in an ideal position to facilitate innovation and differentiation.
