Tackling 16nm Challenges for Arm Cortex-A72 Processor

Arm's Brent McKanna, a senior principal design engineer, leads the company's CPU implementation video. In this 2-minute video, McKanna talks about how Arm and Cadence worked together to address the challenges of developing the Arm Cortex-A72 processor at 16nm. From changing process rules and IP to tool readiness and routability concerns, the teams overcame the challenges, using Cadence® Encounter® and Innovus™ technologies to develop a higher performing, lower power processor. Now, the companies are ready to tackle the challenges of 10nm.
