Cadence Full-Flow Digital Tool Suite Achieves GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22FDX Certification

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Aug 30, 2018 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced that its full-flow digital tool suite has achieved certification for the GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) 22FDX® process technology. The GF certification process was completed using the Cadence® Tensilica® Fusion F1 DSP, which targets internet of things (IoT) and wearables applications. Through the certification process, the Cadence tools have been confirmed to meet all of GF’s accuracy criteria for its fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) architecture, and customers using the Cadence digital tool suite on the GF 22FDX process technology can optimize power, performance and area (PPA) and reduce time-to-market.

To facilitate the adoption of GF’s 22FDX process technology, the following Cadence tools that offer 22FDX body bias support are supported in the GF design flow:

GF chose the Fusion F1 DSP to demonstrate the compelling PPA results with the 22FDX node, which is designed for low-cost, low-energy IoT sensing and connectivity applications. The Fusion F1 DSP provides the power-efficient control and signal processing demanded by emerging IoT applications like NB-IoT-based modems and other battery-powered products.

“Through our collaboration with Cadence, we’ve verified that the Cadence methodology meets our accuracy, frequency, power and cell utilization requirements,” said Richard Trihy, senior director, design enablement at GF. “The certification of the Cadence digital tool suite allows our mutual customers to reach their PPA targets and to experience the benefits associated with the GF 22FDX body bias techniques that are key differentiators with our process technology.”

“Through the integration and innovation offered by our full-flow digital tool suite that was certified using the Tensilica Fusion F1 DSP, customers designing with the GF 22FDX process technology can converge on PPA targets faster,” said KT Moore, vice president, product management in the Digital & Signoff Group at Cadence. “GF performed thorough correlation checks on the Cadence flow, thereby giving users added confidence that they can successfully implement robust designs quickly and stay ahead of the competition in their respective markets.”
