Cadence Digital Implementation and Parasitic Extraction Tools Enabled for Samsung Foundry Gate-All-Around Technology


•       Long-term collaboration between Cadence and Samsung results in successful tapeout of test vehicle using EUV technology
•       Cadence Innovus Implementation System and Quantus Extraction Solution enhanced to support latest Samsung GAA technology requirements

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 29, 2019— Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced that the Cadence® Innovus Implementation System and Quantus Extraction Solution are now enabled for the Samsung Foundry Gate-All-Around (GAA) technology. The Cadence tools have been confirmed to meet Samsung Foundry’s technology requirements, which lets customers who produce high-end products for the mobile, networking, server and automotive markets leverage GAA technology. Additionally, the long-term collaboration between Cadence and Samsung resulted in a successful test vehicle tapeout using this extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology.

Cadence provided Samsung Foundry with advanced design methodologies for the Innovus Implementation System and Quantus Extraction Solution to ensure signoff verification was completed for the test vehicle tapeout. The Innovus Implementation System delivered optimized performance with Samsung’s advanced design rules, while the Quantus Extraction Solution demonstrated strong correlation with implementation, resulting in the on-time tapeout of the industry-standard CPU block.
