Ansys RaptorX Certified by Samsung Foundry for High-Speed DesignDecember 5, 2023 | PRNewswire
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Samsung Foundry certified Ansys' RaptorX on-chip electromagnetic (EM) solution for analyzing high-speed products manufactured with Samsung's 8nm (nanometer) LN08LPP Low Power Plus silicon process. The silicon-validated accuracy of RaptorX™ enables joint customers to harness Samsung's manufacturing process capabilities to achieve greater product reliability and higher performance for 5G, WiFi, automotive, and HPC.
The requirement for EM modeling extends beyond niche applications as chip frequencies continue to increase. The semiconductor industry relies on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tool certification by foundries as a critical step to ensuring the accuracy and reliability of simulation models, which are essential for developing high-speed products. RaptorX's™ accuracy was validated across a multitude of demanding layout geometries, including dense dummy-metal fill, and its models correlated very well with silicon measurements. The ability to reliably predict circuit behavior allows designers to optimize their products with confidence knowing that they will behave as expected and meet performance specifications.
"Our new LN08LPP low-power process responds to a growing demand for high-speed semiconductors," said Sangyun Kim, vice president and head of foundry design technology team at Samsung Electronics. "Our collaboration with Ansys ensures that our customers can rely on leading electromagnetic and multiphysics solutions for today's largest, most sophisticated high-performance designs."
"Our customers are designing the next generation of technology products that rely on the higher frequencies made possible by Samsung's advances in manufacturing technology," said John Lee, vice president and general manager of the electronics, semiconductors, and optics business unit at Ansys. "The certification of RaptorX™ guarantees the required level of accuracy is achieved to ensure that data-intense products meet specifications at all levels."
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.
