Synopsys, Arm, and Samsung Team Up to Enable Implementation of Advanced Arm Core

by Nicolette Emmino

A new collaboration involving Synopsys, Arm, and Samsung will enable the early adoption of the next-generation Arm®-based processor.  Samsung Foundry certified Synopsys’ Fusion Design Platform for its 5LPE process with EUV technology creating solutions that provide PPA gains and enable faster time-to-market.

Design-ready solutions are based on the artificial intelligence (AI)-enhanced, cloud-ready Fusion Design Platform from Synopsys, along with Arm Artisan® Physical IP and POP IP for Samsung Foundry’s advanced 5LPE process. These solutions will accelerate the development of the next wave of semiconductor system-on-chips (SoCs), including designs for high-performance computing (HPC), automotive, 5G, and AI market segments. The collaboration will help customers optimize power, performance, and area (PPA), and achieve faster time-to-market while providing full-flow quality-of-results (QoR) and time-to-results (TTR).

Synopsys’ Fusion Design Platform has been leveraged for optimized implementation of the new Arm core. The Fusion Design Platform incorporates many Synopsys industry-leading products, including:

  • 7nm and below implementation in Fusion Compiler™ design, Design Compiler® graphical synthesis, and IC Compiler II place-and-route system
  • Higher performance with automatic density control and timing-driven placement
  • Lower power with full-flow concurrent clock and datapath (CCD) optimization
  • Signoff closure with PrimeTime® PBA-based ECO with power recovery and exhaustive PBA along with StarRC simultaneous multi-corner extraction
  • Early, accelerated design optimization for power integrity and reliability with the RedHawk Analysis Fusion signoff-driven flow within IC Compiler II

“Using the latest processors offers early customers the ability to leverage new and innovative technologies for their next-generation products, and to do so, customers need a trusted overall solution to ensure quality-of-results and time-to-market,” said Sassine Ghazi, general manager of the Design Group at Synopsys. “This close collaboration among industry leaders paves the way for better and easier implementation, so designers are able to meet aggressive delivery schedules and achieve their performance, power, and area targets.”
