Ansys power integrity and electromagnetic analysis tools optimize semiconductor products for HPC, 5G, and AI applications

Key Highlights

  • Ansys® Redhawk-SC™, Ansys® Totem™, and Ansys® PathFinder-SC™ support power integrity, signal integrity, and reliability signoff requirements for the Intel 16 process node
  • The Ansys multiphysics platform supports new RF capabilities and other advanced Intel 16 process features to deliver faster design completion and higher performance through predictively accurate correlation with silicon

PITTSBURGH, PA, July 11, 2023 – Intel Foundry Services (IFS) certified Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) multiphysics solutions for signoff verification of advanced integrated circuits (ICs) designed with the Intel 16 silicon manufacturing process. The predictive accuracy of Ansys’ power integrity and signal integrity platforms helps designers increase the performance of edge AI, graphic processing, and wireless communication products by avoiding wasteful over-design. The collaboration with IFS validated a seamless electronic design automation (EDA) flow that delivers high productivity for joint customers.

Ansys RedHawk-SC and Ansys Totem are recognized as industry standards for power integrity signoff of digital and analog designs. The solutions’ cloud-enabled data infrastructure provides unparalleled capacity to analyze full-chip designs, hierarchically or flat. Ansys PathFinder-SC uses the same elastic compute infrastructure to verify the electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection circuitry found on all chips.
