Ansys Multiphysics Solutions Achieve Certification for Samsung’s 3nm and 4nm Process Technologies  

Ansys’ collaboration with Samsung Foundry delivers industry-leading power integrity and electromigration signoff solutions for low-power mobile and high-performance computing applications

Key Highlights

  • Ansys® Redhawk-SC™ and Ansys® Totem™ power integrity platforms are certified for Samsung’s most advanced 3nm and 4nm process technologies 
    • Samsung’s certifications will help customers speed design flow convergence for Redhawk-SC and Totem

PITTSBURGH, PA, November 15, 2021 – Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) achieved certification of its cutting-edge multiphysics signoff solutions for Samsung Foundry’s advanced 3nm and 4nm process technologies. This enables joint customer designs to meet critical power, thermal, and reliability standards for highly sophisticated artificial intelligence/machine learning, high-performance computing (HPC), and networking chips, as well as low power 5G and mobile applications.

The certification of Ansys RedHawk-SC for Samsung Foundry 3nm and 4nm process technologies includes power network extraction, power integrity and reliability, signal electromigration (EM), thermal reliability analysis for self-heat, thermal-aware EM, and statistical EM budgeting. Redhawk-SC will analyze very large 3nm network designs by using elastic compute, big-data analytics and high capacity of its underlying Ansys® SeaScape™ infrastructure. Totem is similarly certified for transistor-level custom designs. The predictive accuracy of Redhawk-SC and Totem have been verified through extensive testing by Samsung Foundry.
