At least two things can be expected.

* They all support library format either directly or indirectly through data conversion.

* They shall be much cheaper in the price.

Synplify ASIC has the fastest run-time in industry : ~10 times faster than DC.

Does Synplicity has any tool to convert synopsys .lib to its own db format for IC design?
I think synplify is not industry well accepted tool, cause there are no library support from fab.

It's said that when synthesizing some big designs, Incentia's tool is
10x~100x faster than DC, nearly the same area.
In my opinion, Synopsys has become the barrior in the field of synthesis,
because it is the No.1, what it is doing is just maintain its market-share.
While the other small company have to output a better tool to compete
with Synopsys.
