The Ambarella A7L design took advantage of the complete digital flow from Cadence for IP integration and validation. Engineers were able to meet and exceed their aggressive performance and power design objectives using key capabilities such as intelligent power shutoff and sleep modes. The integrated design flow included the Encounter® Digital Implementation System, featuring the NanoRoute® Router for 32nm digital routing, Encounter RTL Compiler, Encounter Timing System, Encounter Power System, and Incisive® Enterprise Simulator, covering all elements of design, verification and implementation.“Cadence has established advanced node technology in production to address the many unique design complexities and advanced process rules for 32nm HKMG designs,” said Dr. Chi-Ping Hsu, senior vice president, research and development, Silicon Realization Group at Cadence. “The successful production tapeout of this Ambarella A7L design also demonstrates the synergy created when leading technology companies join forces throughout the design process, and how companies like Ambarella are benefiting from such deep collaboration.” In advance of this project, as part of its ongoing customer shuttle program, Samsung Foundry assisted in porting all necessary Ambarella IP to its production-ready 32nm HKMG process technology to ensure that the Ambarella proprietary IP was pre-verified in the new node. Samsung Foundry also provided silicon-proven ARM Artisan optimized logic and memory IP in support of the overall IP needed for this project. “This industry leading 32nm HD system on chip demonstrates the strength of our industry collaboration to accelerate advanced node technology in next generation consumer devices,” said Dr. John Heinlein, vice president of marketing, Physical IP division, ARM. “Drawing on proven technology from industry leaders, including Samsung Foundry’s 32nm HKMG process technology, Cadence Encounter flow, and ARM Cortex™ processor and Artisan® physical IP, we have enabled rapid development of the Ambarella A7L design while ensuring optimal performance and power management.” About Samsung Electronics' Foundry Business Samsung Electronics' Foundry business is dedicated to support fabless and IDM semiconductor companies offering full service solutions encompassing design kits and proven IP to fully turnkey manufacturing to achieve market success with advanced IC designs by Foundry, ASIC and COT engagement.
