Cadence Collaborates with Samsung Foundry to Accelerate Hyperscale Computing SoC Design for Process Nodes Down to 4nm

Highlights:

  • Cadence 20.1 digital full flow tuned for Samsung Foundry advanced-process nodes, enabling optimal PPA and first-pass silicon success
  • HPC reference flows based on iSpatial technology enable rapid design implementation
  • Digital flow’s ML and concurrent macro, standard cell and placement capabilities deliver improved productivity and design optimization

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 8, 2021—Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today announced that it has optimized the Cadence® digital 20.1 full flow for Samsung Foundry’s advanced-process technologies down to 4nm. Through the collaboration, designers can use the Cadence tools to achieve optimal power, performance, and area (PPA) and deliver accurate, first-pass silicon for hyperscale computing applications.

    The Cadence digital 20.1 flow provides capabilities that are well-suited for Samsung Foundry’s advanced-process technologies. For example, the iSpatial technology allows a seamless transition from the Genus™ Synthesis Solution to the Innovus™ Implementation System using a common user interface and database. Machine learning (ML) capabilities enable users to leverage their existing designs to train the GigaOpt™ optimization technology to minimize design margins versus traditional place-and-route flows.
