Samsung Foundry Begins Partnership with Silvaco to Launch their Semiconductor IP Assets

, a leading supplier of EDA software and design IP, today
announced that the semiconductor design IP of Samsung
is now marketed, licensed and supported through Silvaco Inc.
The addition of Samsung production-proven design IP complements
Silvaco’s existing SIPware™ IP products and solutions—embedded
processors, wired interfaces, bus fabrics, peripheral controllers, cores
for automotive, consumer and IoT/sensor applications. The initial
offering of hard design IP is for the 14nm process node and is expected
to extend to advanced technology nodes at 11nm, 10nm and 8nm, as well as
mature planar technologies such as 28nm.

“After identifying the requirements for different consumer, mobile, and
HPC applications, we have compiled a full suite of design IPs which
include wired and high-speed interfaces, analog and mixed-signal blocks
and advanced security hard/soft cores,” said Jaehong Park, executive
vice president of Design Platform Development Team at Samsung
Electronics. “In partnership with Silvaco, we are bringing our proven IP
to SoC engineers world-wide.”

“Design IP is the fastest growing part of Silvaco’s business, and we saw
a 50% sales growth in 2018,” said Babak Taheri, CTO and EVP of Products
at Silvaco. “We expect accelerated growth with our Samsung Foundry
partnership to deliver and support their proven IP to SoC design teams
world-wide. Silvaco has an established track record, with multiple Tier
1 IP semiconductor companies, to unlock their assets and deliver their
captive IP to the market. We are gratified that Silvaco is a trusted
partner for the Samsung Foundry suite of advanced IP. We look forward to
extending our partnership with this premier foundry for current and
future technology nodes.”


Samsung Foundry hard and soft design IP will be offered by Silvaco
starting in June 2019. Contact
