Samsung Foundry has recognized Siemens Digital Industries Software with three Samsung SAFE Awards.
Siemens Digital Industries Software has been recognized by long-term partner Samsung Foundry for its partnership and substantial contributions to the broader Samsung Foundry ecosystem over the past year with three Samsung SAFE Awards. As part of its inaugural Samsung SAFE (Samsung Advanced Foundry Ecosystem) awards program, Siemens is recognized in the categories of Best Innovation, Best Collaboration, and Best Technical Support. The new Samsung Foundry awards program recognizes achievement of the highest standards of design, development, and technology implementation to accelerate silicon innovation.
“I’m pleased to congratulate Siemens as the winner of these three 2020 Samsung Foundry SAFE awards for their EDA solutions,” said Jaehong Park, executive vice president of Foundry Design Platform Development at Samsung Electronics. “These awards reflect our continued partnership with Siemens to address customers’ 2D and 3D design challenges across elements of Samsung Foundry’s design flows and target markets for our most advanced process nodes.”
Siemens’ High Density Advanced Packaging (HDAP) flow earned the Best Innovation award for collaboration on Samsung’s Multi-Die Integration (MDI) packaging solution, which helps mutual customers rapidly prototype, implement, verify and thermally analyze their highly sophisticated multi-die package implementations. The Siemens technologies powering the HDAP flow include the Xpedition Substrate Integrator and Package Designer; Simcenter Flotherm; Simcenter 3D; and Calibre 3DSTACK.
Siemens’ Calibre YieldEnhancer (SmartFill) product team earned Samsung’s Best Technical Support recognition.
Meanwhile, the product team for Siemens’ Calibre Circuit Verification suite won this year’s Samsung SAFE award for Best Collaboration. The team worked closely with Samsung to ensure that each of the following tools in this suite support Samsung’s latest process technology: Calibre nmLVS software; Calibre PERC reliability software; and Calibre xACT parasitic extraction software.
“Siemens is pleased and honored that our long-lasting partnership with Samsung Foundry has resulted in these first SAFE EDA awards,” said Michael Buehler-Garcia, vice president of Product Management for Calibre Design Solutions at Siemens. “As our mutual customers continue to develop higher complexity designs, Samsung Foundry and Siemens will continue to partner to enable the advanced platforms customers need to bring these increasingly sophisticated designs to life.”
