The Quantus FS 3D field solver tool from Cadence Design Systems has been certified for the leading edge 3nm SF3 and SF3E process technologies as well as the 4nm SF4 intermediate node at Samsung Foundry.

During the certification process, the Quantus FS tool boosted accuracy with tighter mean and standard deviation versus the foundry criteria, helping chip designers increase design accuracy and performance.

SF3E was the first generation gate all around process at 3nm while SF3 is the high volume process.

The certification also included verification of capacitance and resistance of BEOL and FEOL, wire via resistance variation and lithography bias modeling. Designers can immediately deploy Quantus FS for library IP characterization, AMS and interface IP, sensors, high-frequency analog and mixed-signal designs, and critical nets in all custom/analog designs—and sign off with confidence.

Included with Cadence’s Quantus Extraction Solution, the Quantus FS solution is a random-walk field solver based on a massively parallel architecture that handles the largest designs, provides faster throughput and linearly scales up to 1000s of CPUs.

The built-in 3D capacitance field solver is cloud-ready and production-proven, offering a flexible, scalable modeling platform that enables faster implementation of the Samsung Foundry’s advanced process technologies.

“Our continued collaboration with Cadence has focused on delivering novel technologies to our mutual customers at advanced process technologies,” said Sungjae Lee, vice president of the Design Enablement team at Samsung Foundry.

“Cadence’s understanding of the complex Gate-All-Around (GAA) modeling features combined with its deep engineering expertise, agility and collaborative approach is very complementary to our own approach in working with our customers. Cadence delivered on all of our accuracy and performance requirements, demonstrating tighter correlation with our golden reference data in a timely manner.”

“The best way to support our customers is to bring innovative products to market that provide efficiencies and speed time to market,” said Vivek Mishra, corporate vice president in the Digital and Signoff Group at Cadence.

“We collaborated with Samsung Foundry during the initial technology development process to ensure all the requirements were met and implemented in the Quantus FS solution for easy, early customer adoption of the process technologies.”
