Cadence and Samsung Collaborate to Innovate at 20nm
Feature stories archive »
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.
