Cadence Expands Collaboration with Samsung Foundry, Providing Differentiated Reference Flows Based on the Integrity 3D-IC Platform

  • Companies advance multi-die planning and implementation, leveraging Cadence’s Integrity 3D-IC platform, the industry’s only unified platform that combines system planning, packaging and system-level analysis
  • Integrity 3D-IC platform supports Samsung’s new 3D CODE standard, enabling designers to create a variety of advanced packaging technologies
  • Cadence and Samsung technologies provide customers with comprehensive, customized solutions for diverse configurations that reduce the overall 3D-IC design development time for 5G, AI, hyperscale, IoT and mobile applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today announced an expanded collaboration with Samsung Foundry to accelerate 3D-IC design development for next-generation applications like hyperscale computing, 5G, AI, IoT and mobile. This latest collaboration advances multi-die planning and implementation with the delivery of the latest reference flows and corresponding package design kits based on the Cadence® Integrity 3D-IC platform, the industry’s only unified platform that includes system planning, packaging and system-level analysis in a single cockpit. In addition, the Integrity 3D-IC platform supports Samsung’s new 3D CODE standard, a new system description language that simplifies the definition and interoperability of design creation and analysis flows in a unified environment.

When developing advanced package multi-die designs, engineers can encounter design analysis and flow complexities, configuration challenges, and system-level thermal and power integrity issues, all of which extend design turnaround time. To address these challenges, the comprehensive, unified solution—reference flows, package design kits and the Samsung 3D CODE standard—simplifies the multi-die design and implementation process, improving productivity and reducing design turnaround time. The reference flows based on the Integrity 3D-IC platform offer key capabilities, including early analysis for the power delivery network (PDN), thermal and system-level layout versus schematic (LVS) and design rule checking (DRC). The flows also incorporate the Cadence Allegro® X packaging technologies as well as multiphysics system-level analysis tools, Celsius Thermal Solver and Clarity 3D Solver, which provide further productivity benefits.

“Customers creating high-performance designs are looking to make use of the benefits advanced packaging technologies offer, such as lower power, lower yield cost and system performance boosts,” said Sangyun Kim, vice president of the Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics. “With the introduction of our 3D CODE technology and Cadence’s comprehensive new flows, we’re providing mutual customers with the next-generation chiplet architectures required to achieve multi-die planning and implementation objectives so they can deliver high-quality products to market faster.”

“Through our continued collaboration with Samsung Foundry, we’re helping customers gain a competitive edge with our multi-die design platform,” said Vivek Mishra, corporate vice president in the Digital & Signoff Group at Cadence. “The reference flows based on the Cadence Integrity 3D-IC platform combined with Samsung’s latest technologies provide our customers a unified design environment that simplifies the workflow and reduces multi-die planning and implementation turnaround time when creating complex 3D-IC designs.”

The Cadence Integrity 3D-IC platform supports the company’s Intelligent System Design strategy, enabling SoC design excellence. For more information on the Integrity 3D-IC platform, please visit
