SAN JOSE, Calif., March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced it is scheduled to showcase 10nm FinFET (10FF) and 16nm FinFET Plus (16FF+) advanced-node technologies that optimize customer designs and manufacturing efficiency at this year's TSMC Technology Symposium in booth 103 on March 15, 2016, in San Jose, Calif.

What: Cadence is planning to hold several demonstrations across a broad range of technology solutions including:

  • Library characterization combining the foundry-trusted Virtuoso® Liberate™ Characterization Solution and the silicon-proven Spectre® Circuit Simulation Platform
  • Circuit simulation with Spectre Accelerated Parallel Simulator (APS), Spectre eXtensive Partitioning Simulator (XPS) and Virtuoso AMS Designer for analog, RF design, FastSPICE and mixed-signal system-on-chip (SoC) verification
  • Wafer-level chip-scale packaging (WLCSP) flow from design to verification signoff using Cadence® SiP Layout and Cadence Physical Verification System (PVS)
  • Cadence and TSMC's innovative solutions for custom design flows at 10nm with Virtuoso Advanced Node
  • Cadence full-flow digital solution for best-in-class power, performance, and area (PPA) and a fast path to design closure
  • Tempus™ Timing Signoff Solution, Voltus™ IC Power Integrity Solution, and Quantus™ QRC Extraction Solution for 10nm silicon-proven signoff with tightly-integrated Innovus™ Implementation System and Virtuoso Variation-Aware Implementation Option flows for 10X faster design closure
  • Layout dependent effect (LDE) and PVS acceleration for 10nm analog and digital designs using Virtuoso and Innovus solutions
  • Latest multi-link and multi-protocol PHY for PCI Express® (PCIe®) 4.0, mixing networking protocols with a single macro, offering long-reach and high-power efficiency
  • Eye diagrams for test chips operating at 3200Mbps on 16FF+ and 2400Mbps on 28HPC process nodes
  • Complete Internet of Things (IoT) subsystem with Cadence SoundWire for MIPI®, QSPI, I2C, and SPI for rapid system development and reduced integration effort

When: March 15, 2016

Where: Booth 103 TSMC 2016 Technology Symposium San Jose McEnery Convention Center 150 West San Carlos Street San Jose, CA 95113
