Multiple Successful Tapeouts on Samsung’s 3nm GAA Technology Validate Product Readiness of Synopsys Design Streams


Article by: Synopsys Inc.

Synopsys’ longstanding collaboration with Samsung Foundry has produced several successful chip tapeout tests on Synopsys’ digital and custom design tools and workflows.

To drive the adoption of Samsung’s 3nm gate-all-around (GAA) technology for designs requiring optimal power, performance, and surface area (PPA), Synopsys Inc.’s longstanding collaboration with Samsung Foundry has produced multiple successful test chip tapeouts on Synopsys digital and custom design tools and workflows, certified for Samsung Foundry’s most advanced process.

Common customers using Samsung Foundry’s SF3 technology can experience about 50% reduced power, 30% improved performance and 30% smaller area than the technology node demonstrated compared to SF5E process of Samsung.

“Today’s demanding mobile, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence applications require power and performance levels that push the limits of small geometries,” said Sangyun Kim, vice president of Samsung Electronics’ Foundry Design Technology team. “Our longstanding collaboration with Synopsys on EDA design flow certifications provides our joint customers with substantial advantages in power, performance and area.”
