- Complete Cadence RTL-to-GDS digital full flow finely tuned for automotive safety, quality and reliability requirements, enabling accurate, first-time silicon
- Flow demonstrated on Cadence Tensilica ConnX B10 DSP, which is ideal for automotive radar, lidar and V2X applications
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 8, 2021—Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today announced the availability of an automotive-optimized Cadence® digital full flow for Samsung Foundry’s 14LPU process technology. The Cadence flow was demonstrated using the high-performance, low-power Cadence Tensilica® ConnX B10 digital signal processor (DSP) for automotive radar, lidar and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) applications. By collaborating with Samsung Foundry, the new Cadence reference flow enables automotive designers to quickly deliver accurate first-time silicon and achieve power, performance and area (PPA) goals.
In addition to enabling first-pass silicon and optimal PPA, the Cadence flow ensures that designers meet critical criteria for automotive designs:
Quality/Reliability: The flow reduces defects out of the manufacturing process, meeting the AEC-Q100 Grade 1 requirement for automotive reliability, thereby ensuring the device meets requirements throughout its lifetime.
Safety: The flow enables system-on-chip (SoC) designs that avoid unreasonable risk due to hazards caused by malfunctions, meeting ASIL B requirements.
