ANSYS Solutions Qualify for the Latest Generation of Samsung Foundry Chip Technologies
Qualification of 14nm and 10nm FinFET technology platforms enables users to create robust and reliable integrated circuits for a variety of applications
Pittsburgh – April 12, 2016 – Customers of Samsung Foundry and ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) have the power to innovate the next generation of electronic devices for high-performance computing, mobile, automotive and IoT applications thanks to Samsung Foundry’s qualification of ANSYS solutions. This qualification for the latest generation of chip technologies enables customers to bring their cutting-edge products to market even faster while reducing design costs and risk.
Cutting-edge electronic products require high-performance, reliability and less power. To accomplish this, multiple sub-systems of an electronic product are combined into one or more integrated circuits known as a system on a chip (SOC). For customers to achieve first silicon success, ANSYS and Samsung Foundry collaborated to qualify ANSYS solutions to meet the accuracy and reliability requirements for 14nm and 10nm FinFET, the two latest process technologies.
Samsung Foundry’s qualification of ANSYS solutions offers customers the access to qualified process design kits and electromigration flows for designing, verifying and sign-off of intellectual properties and SoCs. Customers leverage Samsung Foundry process technologies and ANSYS’ tools to create reliable designs with the required performance, power efficiency and reliability for mobile, consumer and datacenter markets. This enables customers to save time and money by speeding up the design process and bring their products to market faster.
“Our collaboration with Samsung Foundry on the qualification of process design kits and reference flows for the latest technologies empowers mutual customers to redefine their products by developing robust and reliable SoCs,” said John Lee, General Manager at ANSYS. “This accuracy enables customers to build next-generation products that will redefine their industries.”
