PITTSBURGH, Dec. 10, 2019 — Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the global custom application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) leader, has adopted ANSYS to support its unmatched combination of advanced technology, low-power and embedded CPU design capabilities.
Providing advanced ASIC services that meet the needs of today’s innovative technology enterprises requires a fast introduction, timely resolution to customer problems and successful signoff. GUC selected ANSYS RedHawk-SC to support the significant needs of its customers by effectively executing designs with more than one billion device instances and completing the full-chip systems-on-chip (SoC) power integrity and reliability signoff in less than two days.
ANSYS RedHawk-SC is built on ANSYS SeaScape — the world’s first custom-designed, big data architecture for electronic system design and simulation. ANSYS SeaScape features big data architecture for electronic system design and simulation and provides elastic compute scalability to enable rapid design iteration, increased scenario coverage and greater accuracy for full-chip SoC signoff for advanced nodes. ANSYS RedHawk-SC’s actionable analytics provide designers with key insights to prioritize design fixes and enable easy viewing and querying of large design databases in minutes for faster debugging. Efficient hardware utilization makes the platform ideally suited for high-performance computing, artificial intelligence and datacenter applications.
“GUC is committed to providing world-class custom ASICs to help elevate prospective systems and integrated circuit (IC) companies’ market-leading positions,” said Louis Lin, senior vice president, GUC. “As IC manufacturing processes become more complex, there are more elements to simulate and compute during chip design and verification to ensure reliability and minimize power loss. ANSYS helps us minimize this complexity, speed our time to market and reduce development costs. Our partnership with ANSYS has been a cornerstone in helping our clients succeed in the IC market.”
“As a custom ASIC leader, GUC requires cutting-edge solutions for fast and accurate results,” said John Lee, vice president and general manager, semiconductor business unit at ANSYS. “RedHawk-SC meets the market’s unique needs for addressing multiphysics challenges — we are seeing an influx of customers deploying RedHawk-SC for the most complex product and design signoff.”
