Cadence and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Collaborate to Enable Custom/Analog and Digital Design of 20nm Manufacturing Process

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- Feb 05, 2013 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, announced today that GLOBALFOUNDRIES has certified essential Cadence® technologies for custom/analog, digital and mixed-signal design, implementation, and verification for its 20-nanometer LPM technology. The certification covers the Virtuoso and Encounter platforms, including the industry-standard SKILL process design kit (PDK).

"As the leading innovators move to these smaller geometries, they are looking for tools that can keep up with their ever-changing needs," said Andy Brotman, vice president, Design Infrastructure at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. "By ensuring Cadence digital and analog tools support our 20-nanometer LPM production node, our customers can move forward with confidence that their complex designs can be successfully designed and manufactured at these ever-shrinking processes."

GLOBALFOUNDRIES said its qualification of the QRC techfiles, and certification of the PVS decks, meets the demand of customers who recognize the benefit of using signoff tools that are tightly integrated into Cadence custom/analog and digital flows.

"Through our close work with GLOBALFOUNDRIES and our customers, we are helping pave the way for development at today's most advanced geometries," said Dr. Chi-Ping Hsu, senior vice president, Silicon Realization Group at Cadence. "This certification of our Virtuoso and Encounter platforms, and the availability of our products, lets our customers know they now have the resources at their disposal to produce working silicon."
