Siemens’ Aprisa solution certified for GlobalFoundries’ 22FDX platform

Siemens Digital Industries Software has announced that GlobalFoundries (GF) has certified Siemens’ Aprisa place-and-route solution for GF’s 22FDX platform.

The certification was the result of a collaboration between the two companies that incorporated Aprisa enablement technology into GF’s process design kits (PDKs) to help customers leverage the advantages of the 22FDX platform.

The Aprisa tool passed a suite of rigorous tests that confirmed the Siemens place-and-route software supports 22FDX design features that are suitable for high-volume devices that require minimal idle power and low leakage, at design costs in line with those of 28nm chips.

The Aprisa product line was developed for the design of highly advanced integrated-circuits (ICs). Engineered to help enable exceptional levels of quality, Aprisa is able to offer a complete gate-level-to-GDSII hierarchical and block level physical implementation solution. Siemens acquired Aprisa from Avatar Integrated Systems in August 2020 to extend its portfolio of IC EDA software.

“Siemens is pleased to collaborate with long-term partner GF on critical enablement technologies that help our mutual customers deliver innovative ICs for key end-markets around the globe,” said Inki Hong, senior director of the Aprisa division for Siemens Digital Industries Software. "Our combined expertise provides designers the advanced technology they need to develop compelling and highly differentiated ICs for a broad number of fast-growing applications.”

Siemens‘ Aprisa enablement for GF‘s 22FDX platform includes place-and-route technology files, RC extraction files and other essential technologies for optimizing efficiency, yield and overall IC quality.
