Synopsys and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Collaborate to Develop Broad Portfolio of DesignWare IP for 12LP+ FinFET Solution
DesignWare IP Delivers Significant Performance and Power Advantages for Cloud Computing and Edge AI SoCs on GF 12LP+ Solution
Synopsys, Inc. announced its collaboration with GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) to develop a broad portfolio of DesignWare IP for GF’s 12LP+ FinFET solution, including USB4/3.2/DPTX/3.0/2.0, PCIe 5.0/4.0/2.1, die-to-die HBI and 112G USR/XSR, 112G Ethernet, DDR5/4, LPDDR5/4/4X, MIPI M-PHY, Analog-to-Digital Converter, and one-time programmable (OTP) non-volatile memory (NVM) IP. The DesignWare IP is optimized to meet the high-bandwidth memory throughput and reliable, high-performance connectivity demands of cloud computing and AI chips implemented on GF’s 12LP+ solution. This recent collaboration marks another significant milestone of the continuous, successful collaboration between the two companies.
GF’s most advanced FinFET solution, 12LP+ builds upon GF’s established 14nm/12LP platform, of which GF has shipped more than one million wafers. Driving the enhanced performance of 12LP+ are features including a 20-percent SoC-level logic performance boost over 12LP, and a 10-percent improvement in logic area scaling.
“With an excellent combination of performance, power and area, our 12LP+ solution is engineered to meet the specific needs of HPC, cloud and edge AI accelerators, storage, and aerospace and defense applications,” said Mark Ireland, vice president of ecosystem and design solutions at GF. “By collaborating with Synopsys, a leading IP provider, on the development of a wide range of high-quality DesignWare IP optimized on GF’s 12LP + solution, we are providing greater differentiation and increased value for our mutual customers while minimizing their development costs and speeding their time to market. With Die-to-Die IP, we extend the support to customers who are transitioning to chiplet architectures and seeking a lower product cost and added configuration flexibility.”
