Cadence Tools Certified for TSMC 16nm FinFET and 20nm

If you're designing at advanced nodes, take advantage of a production-ready set of Cadence® design tools certified for TSMC's 20SoC process technology. Several of our SoC development tools have also achieved version 0.1 of design rule manual (DRM) and SPICE model tool certification for TSMC's 16nm FinFET process.

Using these tool chains, you won't miss out on the performance and power advantages of smaller process nodes.

Blog: DAC 2013 Panel: What's Needed to "Fix" Timing Signoff?
