Cadence and Samsung Collaborate to Innovate at 20nm
Samsung offers foundry services and advanced logic technologies starting at 90nm, with technologies now in production down to 32/28nm. To begin development at 20nm, however, Samsung faced several new technical and ecosystem challenges.

Having worked with Cadence successfully on a previous advanced-node project, Samsung extended their collaboration to address the rules and complexities unique to 20nm design. Using an end-to-end, fully optimized Cadence® design flow― from Encounter® RTL Compiler and Encounter Digital Implementation System, to NanoRoute® Ultra, to Incisive® Enterprise Simulator―Samsung could take advantage of the benefits of 20nm.

Find out more about this major milestone for the 20nm ecosystem.
