MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced that TSMC has certified the Synopsys Galaxy™ Design Platform digital and custom design tools for TSMC's 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process. The certification is based on the V0.9 version of the process and enables design engineering teams using TSMC's 10-nm process to realize the power of IC Compiler™ II's high throughput. Tool certification of V1.0 process is targeted to be completed Q4 2015. The certification includes routing rules, physical verification runsets, signoff-accurate extraction technology files, statistical timing analysis that correlates with SPICE, and interoperable process design kits (iPDKs) for FinFET processes. Built on a history of collaboration between TSMC and Synopsys, this certification ensures system-on-chip (SoC) designers can get optimum power, performance and area from the 10-nm process.
"Synopsys is ready with complete, certified, digital and custom implementation tools, as designers move to the 10-nanometer process," said Bijan Kiani, vice president of product marketing for Synopsys' Design Group. "This collaboration with TSMC for 10-nanometer ensures that the proven platform can be deployed for predictable design closure."
"Our deep and extensive collaboration with Synopsys on critical design-enablement technologies has continued beyond the 16nm FinFET Plus process," said Suk Lee, TSMC senior director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division. "Synopsys and TSMC are addressing our customers' needs to deliver highly optimized design solutions for our most advanced 10-nm FinFET process."
Key Synopsys tools certified by TSMC include:
