Synopsys offers an RF design reference flow and companion design solutions kit that speed design closure on Samsung Foundry’s 8-nm FinFET process. The 8-nm RF design reference flow, which tightly integrates software from Synopsys and Ansys, enhances time-to-results, quality-of results, and cost-of-results for advanced-node RF designs in 5G/6G applications.
Sangyun Kim, corporate vice president of the Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics, believes the 8-nm RF process technology could massively improve the performance and power efficiency of 5G communication chips.
The reference flow documents a proven methodology for RF design with Synopsys and Ansys tools that spans schematic design, simulation, layout, extraction, electromagnetic (EM) simulation, and physical verification. The associated design solutions kit includes a set of application notes, tutorials and design examples that cover advanced design methodology topics.
Key elements of the flow include the Synopsys Custom Design Family, featuring the Custom Compiler design and layout tool, PrimeSim circuit simulator, StarRC parasitic extraction signoff product, and IC Validator for physical verification. Ansys tools include VeloceRF for inductive component and transmission line synthesis, as well as RaptorX and RaptorH advanced nanometer EM analyzers.
