Synopsys Ships More Than 3,000 HAPS-80 Prototyping Systems
HAPS-80's High Performance and Cost Effectiveness Has Driven Adoption by More Than 100 Companies

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced that it has shipped more than 3,000 HAPS®-80 prototyping systems since its introduction. HAPS-80 is deployed at more than 100 companies worldwide, including nine of the top 10 semiconductor companies, to accelerate software development and system validation across a wide range of consumer, wired and wireless communications, industrial, AI, and computing/storage applications. These companies selected HAPS-80 due to its high performance and cost effectiveness. HAPS-80 offers proven scalability, including deployment in data centers, a rich catalog of real-world I/O interfaces, and a tool set leveraging 20+ years of FPGA synthesis technology leadership.

"MediaTek is a leader in advanced 5G modems," said Gauss Lin, head of LRM at MediaTek, "Verifying our advanced 4G/5G architectures and protocol software requires scalable and high-performance prototyping. Synopsys' HAPS-80 allows us to deliver cost-effective prototypes to our 5G software and system validation teams that include our interface daughterboards and connect to 5G protocol testers. With the HAPS-80 software stack we are achieving between 5MHz to more than 100MHz performance."
