PITTSBURGH, April 30, 2018 – ANSYS today announced the certification of ANSYS RedHawk and ANSYS Totem by TSMC for the latest version of 5nm FinFET process. Through the certifications and a comprehensive suite of semiconductor design solutions, ANSYS and TSMC can support mutual customers to meet increasing demands for next-generation mobile and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. TSMC’s certification with ANSYS includes extraction, power integrity and reliability, and signal electromigration (signal EM) reliability analysis.
“This certification supports mutual customers to address growing performance, reliability and power demands, while accelerating their design closure with greater confidence,” said Suk Lee, senior director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division at TSMC. “Through the collaboration between ANSYS and TSMC, our customers can optimize, verify and validate their designs to meet aggressive performance and reliability goals.”
“As mobile and HPC processors become faster, more functional and complex, the margins become smaller, schedules become tighter and costs increase. The cost of design failure is huge,” said John Lee, general manager at ANSYS. “ANSYS and TSMC jointly help designers to achieve first-time silicon success and accelerate time to market.”
