The collaboration spans the broad portfolio of Fusion Design Platform signoff solutions, including PrimeTime static timing analysis, PrimeECO design closure, PrimePower power analysis, StarRC extraction and SiliconSmart library characterization
Synopsys announced that it has collaborated with Samsung Foundry to deliver a fully qualified flow with significant gains in accuracy, turnaround time and designer productivity. By targeting 5G, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing SoCs, these gains enable customers at Samsung 5-nanometer (nm) to 3nm process nodes to achieve optimal power, performance, area (PPA) and accelerate time-to-results (TTR).
“Samsung Foundry serves many leading-edge customers in the most advanced application segments that demand the highest levels of design performance, robustness, and power efficiency. Our collaboration with Synopsys has been instrumental in delivering state-of-the-art signoff flows to our customers for our advanced 5 to 3nm process nodes,” said Sangyun Kim, vice president of Foundry Design Technology at Samsung Electronics.
The collaboration spans the broad portfolio of Fusion Design Platform signoff solutions, including PrimeTime static timing analysis, PrimeECO design closure, PrimePower power analysis, StarRC extraction and SiliconSmart library characterization.
“We are fortunate to team up with Samsung Foundry to drive these innovations across a wide range of signoff technologies pushing performance limits and reducing margins required for design with the highest degree of confidence on Samsung’s latest advanced process technologies. We look forward to continuing our collaboration for the next wave of designs and application segments,” said Jacob Avidan, senior vice president of engineering in Synopsys’ Design Group.
Synopsys, in November 2020, had acquired two companies named Light Tec and Moortec. The Moortec sensors, as per Synopsys, provide a key component to Synopsys’ new Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) platform. Light Tec’s acquisition, as per the company, enables it to continuously augment the materials and media software libraries provided in their optical software products for faster, physics-based system modeling.
