Mentor extends support of tools and solutions for Samsung Foundry's 8LPP and 7LPP process technologies

WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 26, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Mentor, a Siemens business, today announced it has enabled a wide range of Mentor verification tools and solutions for the latest versions of Samsung Foundry's 8LPP and 7LPP offerings. Mentor's Calibre® nmPlatform and Analog FastSPICE™ (AFS™) custom and analog/mixed-signal (AMS) circuit verification platforms are available for use in the verification and sign-off of production tapeouts for Samsung Foundry's innovative 8LPP and 7LPP process technologies.

Samsung Foundry's 7LPP is its first process technology to use an EUV lithography solution, while its 8LPP is a non-EUV solution that provides a best-in-class mix of power, performance and accuracy relative to processes introduced prior to the EUV era.

"Samsung Foundry continues to offer the most competitive range of process technologies in the industry," said Ryan Sanghyun Lee, vice president of Foundry Marketing Team at Samsung Electronics. "Our longstanding collaboration with Mentor ensures our mutual customers are not only able to sign-off their designs with the industry's golden Calibre solution, but can also optimize their designs to best leverage Samsung Foundry's process offerings."

Samsung Foundry has enabled the full suite of tools in the Calibre platform to ensure designers can achieve tapeout success quickly and confidently:

To enable system-on-chip (SoC) designers to complete circuit verification, physical implementation and IC test with confidence, the Mentor AFS platform is enabled in Samsung Foundry's device models and design kits. Mutual customers rely on the AFS platform to deliver nanometer SPICE accuracy while verifying analog, RF, mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital circuits faster than with traditional SPICE simulators.

"Mentor continues to lead the way in delivering sign-off solutions for all of Samsung Foundry's silicon processes," said Joe Sawicki, vice president and general manager of the Mentor Design-to-Silicon Division. "Samsung Foundry's pace of innovation is impressive, and we are proud to work with Samsung Foundry to enable our mutual customers to fully leverage Samsung Foundry's range of process technologies to deliver innovations that best suit our customers' market and business requirements."
