CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/12LP?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#12LPlt;/agt;–Xpeedic Technology, Inc. today announced that its 3D full-wave
electromagnetic (EM) simulation tool, IRIS, has been qualified on
GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 12nm Leading-Performance (12LP) process technology.
This qualification enables designers to run IRIS with confidence using
the certified IRIS process file available on GF’s 12LP FinFET
semiconductor manufacturing process.
GF’s 12LP technology provides as much as a 10 percent improvement in
logic circuit density and more than a 15 percent improvement in
performance over 14nm FinFET solutions, satisfying the processing needs
of the most demanding compute-intensive applications from artificial
intelligence and virtual reality to high-end smartphones and networking
“Accurate EM simulation tools are critical for successful first design
pass for our clients’ compute-intensive applications,” said Richard
Trihy, vice president, Design Enablement at GF. “The qualification of
Xpeedic’s EM tool provides designers predictable EM simulation results
for advanced process technologies.”
“We are very pleased that IRIS is able to achieve excellent correlation
with measurement and thus qualified for GF’s 12LP process,” said Dr.
Feng Ling, CEO of Xpeedic Technology, “As GF FDXcelerator and RFwave
member, Xpeedic will continue the collaboration with GF on various
process technologies to help our mutual clients with innovative
solutions and services.”
The electromagnetic qualification program by GF ensures that every EM
tool qualified by the program meets GF’s highest quality standards. With
this qualification, IC designers can choose their preferred EM
simulation tool, and its corresponding process file, to ensure their
design confidence and reduce time-to-market.
