PITTSBURGH, PA, December 5, 2022 – Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) today announced that GF has certified Ansys® RedHawk-SC™, Ansys® RaptorH™ and Ansys® HFSS™ semiconductor tools for its flagship 22FDX platform. The GF certification enables chip designers to reduce costs by eliminating wasteful safety margins and improving system performance, without compromising reliability or risking unexpected and damaging interactions between design elements.
GF’s 22FDX platform is a popular choice for Internet of Things (IoT), smart mobile, and automotive markets, and GF’s certification ensures that Ansys tools provide unparalleled predictive accuracy in verifying the correct functioning of ultra-low power, high-speed and radio frequency (RF) designs.
RedHawk-SC uses sophisticated, proprietary algorithms to verify a chip’s power supply integrity and electromigration reliability for both digital designs and analog designs. RaptorH and HFSS analyze electromagnetic coupling to verify high-speed performance. The Ansys tools were certified by GF to provide predictively accurate results for 22FDX following extensive testing on a broad array of test cases and real-life design examples.
“The certification of Ansys’ Redhawk-SC, RaptorH and HFSS products enables our joint customers to use these popular signoff tools with full confidence in their predictive accuracy,” said Richard Trihy, vice president of Design and Technology Enablement at GF. “Through our collaboration with Ansys, customers can push the boundaries of ultra-low power design and feature integration of our unique 22FDX platform.”
