Synopsys Fusion Design Platform First to be Certified by Samsung Foundry for 5LPE Process with EUV Technology

AI-enhanced, Cloud-ready Platform with Fusion Technology Accelerates Next Wave of Industry Innovation

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 4, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —


Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced that Samsung Electronics has certified the Synopsys Fusion Design Platform for Samsung's 5-nanometer (nm) Low-Power Early (LPE) process with Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology. The AI-enhanced, cloud-ready Fusion Design Platform provides unprecedented full-flow quality-of-results (QoR) and time-to-results (TTR), enabling the full entitled performance and low power delivered by Samsung's 5LPE process technology to accelerate the next wave of semiconductor designs, including high-performance computing (HPC), automotive, 5G, and artificial intelligence (AI) market segments.

"Through our 7-nanometer product shipment and the successful completion of 5-nanometer process development, we've proven our capabilities in EUV-based nodes. Using the Synopsys Fusion Design Platform, our mutual customers will be able to design the most competitive 5LPE SoC products for the full entitled performance and low power applications," said JY Choi, vice president of Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics. "Synopsys continues to be our vendor of choice for collaboration on new node development and enablement, so our foundry customers can confidently ramp their designs to volume production in all market segments, including automotive, AI, high-performance computing, and mobile."

Samsung Foundry certified the Fusion Design Platform using the 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex-A57 processors, which are based on the Armv8 architecture. Key tools and features of the Synopsys Fusion Design Platform optimized for Samsung 5LPE process technology include:

Synopsys' Fusion Design Platform is in active production usage at market-leading companies; it redefines conventional design tool boundaries with the fusion of best-in-class optimization and industry-golden signoff and design-for-test (DFT) tools, enabling the most predictable full-flow convergence with the fewest iterations. The AI-enhanced platform boosts designer productivity by speeding up computation-intensive analyses and leverages past learning to achieve superior QoR. The Fusion Design Platform provides a streamlined cloud-ready design environment and is enabled on major public cloud providers' and Synopsys-hosted infrastructure.

"Our long and successful collaboration with Samsung Foundry has enabled our mutual customers to adopt Synopsys' market-leading solutions early, certified on Samsung's most advanced node," said Sassine Ghazi, general manager of Synopsys' Design Group. "Combining the 5LPE benefits in power, performance, and gate density with the Synopsys Fusion Design Platform QoR and TTR advantages will enable our mutual customers to differentiate their next-generation products. Synopsys continues to focus on providing the best solutions for joint customers."
