IBM, ARM, Samsung, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Synopsys Announce Delivery of New Chip Platform


ARM, IBM, Samsung, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Synopsys, today announced the delivery of the first complete vertically optimized 32/28 nanometer (nm) design platform.

Demonstrating the strength of the collaboration established and announced at DAC a year ago, the companies are providing a technology enablement solution for the design and manufacturing of advanced mobile and embedded devices.

The solution consists of optimized high performance, low-power processor and physical IP from ARM; tool enablement, connectivity IP and integrated design flow from Synopsys; and 32/28nm low-power process technology from the Common Platform alliance of IBM, Samsung and GLOBALFOUNDRIES. The Common Platform 32/28nm process uses a high-k metal gate approach to address the limitations of polysilicon technology. The 32nm technology is scalable to 28nm for area optimization. The platform allows chip makers to move to the 28nm technology without the need for a major redesign and with lower risk, reduced cost and faster time-to-market.

The platform leverages:

- ARM Cortex high-performance, low-power processor architecture and optimized suite of physical IP, including standard cells, power management kit, memory compilers and interface IP, for the 32/28nm HKMG process. All physical IP are readily accessible on DesignStart - http://designstart.arm.com

- Synopsys Lynx Design System, enabled by the Galaxy Implementation Platform with IC Validator In-Design physical verification, and the Synopsys DesignWare portfolio of interface IP. This RTL-to-GDSII implementation solution reduces risk and total design costs for optimized 32/28nm HKMG ARM Cortex processor-based SoC designs.

- 10 test chips produced through the three-way collaboration in 32 and 28nm HKMG process technology. Producing these chips has helped validate the design platform, including Common Platform PDKs, ARM Physical IP and Cortex processors, Synopsys Interface IP, core tool enablement and design methodology for accelerating first customer silicon success.

- 32nm low-power HKMG process technology is currently factory-qualified by Samsung 28nm low-power HKMG process technology to be factory-qualified at GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Samsung in Q1 2011. The 32/28nm process technologies, featuring the Gate First approach to HKMG, offer significant improvements in performance and power consumption when compared to the 45/40nm technology generations.

- A standardized platform to manufacture 28nm low-power HKMG semiconductors for a new generation of mobile devices, providing the flexibility of multi-sourcing based on the planned synchronization of fabs by members of the Common Platform alliance.

Demonstrations and technical sessions of this 32/28nm enablement platform will be shown at the 2010 DAC in the ARM-Common Platform-Synopsys booth (#586) "32/28nm Delivered" exhibit. On Tuesday, June 15, the companies will host an access innovation luncheon - where executives from the five allied companies will detail the benefits of 32/28nm HKMG and the accessibility of the enablement platform.
