Cadence Signoff Solutions Empower Samsung Foundry’s Breakthrough Success on 5G Networking SoC DesignDecember 1, 2023 | Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that Samsung Foundry successfully taped out a 5G networking SoC design on the Samsung 5LPE technology using the Cadence® Quantus™ Extraction Solution and Tempus™ Timing Solution. This accomplishment marks a turning point for Samsung Foundry where the team deployed the Cadence signoff solutions for the first time, achieving a 2X productivity boost that led to faster design closure versus its previous design methodology. The team also experienced significant power, performance and area (PPA) gains on this 120M instance design using the Cadence integrated flow.
One of the most notable aspects of Samsung Foundry’s achievement was the team’s use of the Tempus ECO Option within the Cadence Innovus™ Implementation System, which facilitated faster design convergence and closure, leading to an unprecedented reduction in project timeline. Further contributing to the productivity improvement, Samsung Foundry deployed the Tempus hierarchical static timing analysis feature, enabling hierarchical design closure while optimizing resource allocation and reducing machine and memory demands. Lastly, the Samsung team utilized Tempus and Quantus distributed technology to curtail the overall runtime for this complex design.
“The successful tapeout of our SF5A design for 5G networking was a significant milestone for our team, and the enhanced efficiency and reduced runtime afforded by the Cadence Quantus Extraction Solution and Tempus Timing Solution are a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration between the Cadence and Samsung teams,” said Sangyun Kim, Vice president and head of Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics. “We’re committed to pushing the boundaries and leveraging the effectiveness of these signoff tools to deliver our designs to market faster, and we look forward to building upon our success for future projects and advancements.”
“The integrated Quantus Extraction Solution and Tempus Signoff Solution played a pivotal role in enabling Samsung Foundry to achieve enhanced productivity and PPA gains and time-to-market efficiencies,” said Vivek Mishra, corporate vice president in the Digital & Signoff Group at Cadence. “The most rewarding aspect of the collaboration with Samsung Foundry was seeing the team achieve their target design metrics while accelerating the time to market. We’re looking forward to continuing our work together to advance innovation.”
The Quantus Extraction Solution and Tempus Timing Solution are part of the broader Cadence digital full flow, offering a faster path to tapeout. The tools and flow support the company’s Intelligent System Design™ strategy, enabling customers to achieve SoC design excellence.
Siemens Joins Semiconductor Education Alliance to Address Skills and Talent Shortage in Global Semiconductor Industry02/29/2024 | Siemens Digital Industries
Siemens Digital Industries Software announced today it has joined the Semiconductor Education Alliance to help build and nurture thriving communities of practice across the integrated circuit (IC) design and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industries, from teachers and schools to universities, publishers, educational technology companies and research organizations.
At DesignCon, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with Brad Griffin, product marketing group director for the System Analysis Group at Cadence Design Systems. Brad explains how this analysis tool enables designers to address SI and PI issues early in the design process, before they become costly errors, and why he believes his late co-worker Dennis Nagel would be proud to see his efforts come to fruition.
Sondrel, a leading provider of ultra-complex chips for leading global technology brands, announces that it has secured two new contracts to supply Design Consultancy Services for a Network processor chip and a Radio Transceiver chip.
With the seemingly endless ways that electronic products are worming their way into our lives, what was once “nice to own” is increasingly considered indispensable. The capabilities of these products have been driven by relentless improvements at every level of the manufacturing chain, from individual transistors (which are approaching Angstrom levels) to systems the size of buildings supporting Bitcoin mining and increasingly distributed AI products.
