GLOBALFOUNDRIES Unveils 28nm Analog - Mixed Signal Production Design Flow Development Kit


At today?s inaugural Global Technology Conference, GLOBALFOUNDRIES showcased the first open-access 28nm Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS) production design flow development kit.

The company is making the flow available to its customers as a platform to build upon foundry methodologies and enable successful design. GLOBALFOUNDRIES has teamed with Cadence Design Systems to deliver this AMS production design flow.

"Collaboration and openness have never been more essential to enabling innovation at advanced technology nodes," said Richard Trihy, director of design methodology at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. "We are working closely with our ecosystem partners to deliver optimized design solutions. Customers can build on the leading-edge 28nm production design flow platform we?ve developed with Cadence to differentiate their designs and product offerings."

The AMS flow is designed to emphasize the advanced features of GLOBALFOUNDRIES? 28nm Gate First High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) technology. The flow includes silicon-driven guidelines and recommendations for better manufacturability. The company's customers will have access to IP, libraries, reference kits and foundry collateral, which will allow them to recreate the design and flow to meet their individual design specifications. GLOBALFOUNDRIES also will be the first in the industry to support a flow with DRC+, GLOBALFOUNDRIES? silicon-validated solution that goes beyond standard Design Rule Checking (DRC) and uses two-dimensional shape-based pattern-matching to enable a 100-fold speed improvement in identifying complex manufacturing issues without sacrificing accuracy.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES has joined with Cadence to deliver the major elements of the AMS production design flow in Q3, 2010, with all of the flow steps supported by the GLOBALFOUNDRIES PDK. The reference flow contains PCells that enable critical advanced features within Cadence Virtuoso custom design tools. The complete production-level AMS flow is expected to be released to customers in Q4 2010, with silicon validation scheduled for early 2011.

The flow encompasses analog block design and mixed signal design, demonstrating mixed analog and digital design with GLOBALFOUNDRIES PDKs and partner standard cell libraries. All aspects of the design are covered in the reference flow including managing parasitic concerns, rapid circuit layout prototyping, analog layout guidelines and routing, simulation (e.g., choice of corners, Monte Carlo), inductor synthesis, metal fill and EM/IR analysis.

The design flow is also augmented with whitepapers and collateral on common challenges and GLOBALFOUNDRIES-recommended solutions. In addition, the flow incorporates top-level physical signoff steps for manufacturing using GLOBALFOUNDRIES 28nm requirements for DRC, lithography simulation and CMP.
