ASIC and IP developer Faraday Technology is developing a 64 core System-on-Chip (SoC) to be built on Intel’s 18A process technology.

The design uses the ARM Neoverse Compute Subsystems (CSS) and is part of Faraday’s upcoming SoC evaluation platform for data centre servers, high-performance computing (HPC)-related ASICs and custom SoCs that is expected to be available in 1H2025 on the Intel 18A process.

The platform will incorporate additional interface IP from the ARM Total Design ecosystem, ensuring a comprehensive implementation and verification process for the leading edge 18A technology. This integrated approach is poised to streamline SoC architecture exploration within the front-end design flow, ultimately reducing the overall chip development timeline.

“As a design service partner in Arm Total Design, Faraday strategically targets the most advanced technology nodes to fulfil the evolving needs of future applications,” said Steve Wang, CEO of Faraday. “This will benefit our ASIC and DIS (Design Implementation Service) customers, enabling them to expedite the time-to-market for cutting-edge data centre and HPC applications.”

“The advancements in AI and the proliferation of data throughout the entire infrastructure emphasizes the importance of Neoverse CSS and the need for an ecosystem like Arm Total Design to accelerate innovation,” said Mohamed Awad, senior vice president and general manager, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm. “We’re thrilled to see industry leaders like Faraday and Intel on the cutting edge of Arm-based custom silicon development with their Neoverse CSS-based SoC and we look forward to how this innovation advances development in data centre and HPC applications.”

“We are pleased to work with Faraday in the development of the SoC based on Arm Neoverse CSS utilizing our most competitive Intel 18A process technology,” said Stuart Pann, Intel senior vice president and general manager of Intel Foundry Services (IFS). “Our strategic collaboration with Faraday demonstrates our commitment to delivering technology and manufacturing innovation across the global semiconductor supply chain helping Faraday’s customers to seamlessly meet the world-leading power and performance standards for SoC designs.”

The Faraday silicon IP portfolio encompasses a wide array of offerings, such as I/O, Cell Library, Memory Compiler, ARM-compliant CPUs, LPDDR4/4X, DDR4/3, MIPI D-PHY, V-by-One, USB 3.1/2.0, 10/100 Ethernet, Giga Ethernet, SATA3/2, PCIe Gen4/3, and SerDes.
