Next week GLOBALFOUNDRIES will be attending and presenting at the 2013 Synopsys User Group (SNUG) Conference in Santa Clara, CA on March 25 to 27. Attendees will receive practical information on a variety of topics useful for jumpstarting future design or advancing innovation projects. We are looking forward to sharing our perspective on the industry, as well as technological advances with our partners and other members of the manufacturing community.
During the conference, GF Design Methodology team will present their findings and flow recommendations on the 14 and 20nm extractions/STA on Monday, March 25 at 3:45 p.m. During this session, attendees will get a firsthand look at what exactly is required to perform 14nm and 20nm double patterning-aware extraction and static timing analysis. We have collaborated with Synopsys on validating the capabilities of the StarRC and PrimeTime-SI for those advanced nodes.
In addition to our Design Team presentation, GF’s Vice President of Advanced Technology Architecture, Subramani Kengeri, will participate in a FinFET technology panel on Tuesday, March 26 at 10:30 a.m.. Kengeri will join other leading developers of FinFET technology and early adopters of FinFET-based design flow to discuss the future of the technology and the challenges they face. Panelists will highlight the evolution of transistors from microns to nanometers, as well as the future evolution into three dimensions. FinFET devices have the potential to deliver both power and performance characteristics necessary for today’s mobile computing market. The panel also will touch on challenges in developing the process and design flow for FinFETs and the importance of maintaining ecosystem partnerships.
In addition to these activities, GF’s representatives will be available on the exhibit show floor on March 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. during the SNUG Designer Community Expo. This is a great time to learn more about GF, including our design, products and partner collaboration projects. We look forward to seeing you there!
