Intel Custom Foundry Certifies ANSYS Tools For 14nm Design
ANSYS, Inc and Intel are collaborating to enable the delivery of large, robust and high-performance systems on a chip (SoC) for Intel Custom Foundry customers. Delivered as part of the collaboration are electromigration (EM) and power (IR) reference flow for Intel's 14-nanometer (nm) process family and the certification of ANSYS RedHawk and ANSYSTotem.
"The successful certification of ANSYS RedHawk and Totem tools allows our customers to implement and verify the differentiated intellectual properties (IPs) and SoCs in Intel's 14nm design platform," said Venkat Immaneni, senior director, Foundry Design Kit Enablement for Intel Custom Foundry. "This allows our customers to take advantage of our second-generation tri-gate transistors to achieve high-volume manufacturing."
"Our collaboration with Intel on 14nm design platform and the EM/IR certification of our solutions has increased the quality of results (QOR), empowering customers of Intel Custom Foundry with the process, design flow and tools to develop robust and reliable SoCs," said Aveek Sarkar, vice president product engineer and support of ANSYS. "Intel Custom Foundry's growing 14nm customer base can now use ANSYS' industry leading software to validate EM/IR and power efficiency in their designs."
The ANSYS portfolio of product offerings will be showcased at the upcoming Design Automation Conference (DAC) in exhibit booth #1232.
