Cadence Design Systems, Inc. CDNS recently collaborated with GlobalFoundries (“GF”) to offer a fully digital solution on Amazon Web Services (“AWS”).

Amid the increasing complexity, design teams face numerous challenges in building efficient design solutions and need tools that can address these issues and serve a broad range of end markets and applications.

The integrated Cadence digital flow, when combined with the power of the cloud, helps customers address these design bottlenecks by providing enhanced design closure. It also increases the chances of achieving design power, performance and area (PPA) targets.

Benefits of the Alliance

With the help of this collaboration, GF has qualified the use of Cadence's complete digital solution on its proprietary, differentiated 22FDXplatform. This will enable customers to achieve cloud scalability, efficiency and productivity while attaining optimized design PPA and accelerated time-to-market.

GF’s alliance with Cadence underscores how the former is partnering with ecosystem leaders for delivering innovative solutions while enhancing time-to-market. Leveraging the success of GF’s 22FDX design flow and the Cadence digital solution, this collaboration helps the companies to achieve fully cloud-based implementation that delivers flexibility, reliability and superior performance for its customers.

Through its partnership with GF, Cadence is enabling customers to take advantage of the power of the cloud to develop next-generation state-of-the-art design solutions that cater to evolving trends like automotive vehicles and the Internet of Things (IoT.)

For instance, Xenergic, a company that provides ultra-low-power and high-performance on-chip memory solutions, used the Cadence digital full flow and the Tensilica Fusion F1 DSP on the GF 22FDX platform to successfully tape out a test chip featuring low-power memories. This demonstrates that customers can design with confidence in the cloud and can successfully scale cloud resources during peak needs to rev up development times.

San Jose, CA-based Cadence is a leading electronic systems design company leveraging more than 30 years of computational software expertise. The company is well-positioned to gain from strength across segments like digital & signoff solutions and functional verification suite. An expanding product portfolio and frequent product launches are key catalysts.

The company is also gaining from higher investments in emerging markets like the IoT and autonomous vehicle sub-systems, along with strength in the semiconductor end market. Its top-line performance is driven by a robust product portfolio that includes solutions like Cadence Cerebrus Intelligent Chip Explorer, Spectre X, Virtuoso, Clarity 3D Transient Solver and Protium Enterprise Prototyping, among others.

A few days back, Cadence had collaborated with GF to expedite the development of next-generation silicon photonics integrated circuit (IC) designs for 5G communications, hyperscale computing, healthcare, automotive, IoT and aerospace systems.

Shares of Cadence have rallied 23.9% in the past year compared with the industry’s growth of 19.9%.
