Cadence Custom/Analog and Full-Flow Digital and Signoff Tools Enabled for GLOBALFOUNDRIES 7LP Process Node


Reference flow available for early customer engagement

DESIGN AUTOMATION CONFERENCE, AUSTIN, Texas, Jun. 20, 2017 – Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced that its custom/analog and full-flow digital and signoff tools are now enabled for v0.5 of the GLOBALFOUNDRIES 7nm Leading-Performance (7LP) FinFET semiconductor technology. The 7LP process node is expected to deliver 40 percent better performance and twice the area scaling than the previous 14nm FinFET technology.

GF has enabled the Cadence® implementation tools and reference flow for the 7LP platform, providing high-volume customers with the ability to create reliable, advanced-node chips for the high-performance compute (HPC), server/datacenter, premium mobility AP, machine learning and vision processing markets.
