Cadence Collaborates with Arm to Accelerate Mobile Device Silicon Success with New Arm Total Compute Solu
- New Arm TCS23 and Cadence tools offer a fast path to tapeout
- Cadence fine-tuned its RTL-to-GDS digital flow and delivered corresponding 3nm and 5nm RAKs for Arm Cortex-X4, Cortex-A720 and Cortex-A520 CPUs and Immortalis-G720, Mali-G720 and Mali-G620 GPUs, providing engineers with efficiencies and improved quality of results
- Arm leveraged Cadence Cerebrus to meet and exceed PPA targets faster on its Arm Cortex-X4 CPU
- Cadence verification flow optimized for the newest Arm CPUs and GPUs, enabling customers to improve verification throughput
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. CDNS today announced it has continued to expand its collaboration with Arm to advance mobile device silicon success, providing customers with a faster path to tapeout through use of Cadence digital and verification tools and the new Arm Total Compute Solutions 2023 (TCS23), which includes the Arm Cortex-X4, Arm Cortex-A720 and Cortex-A520 CPUs and Immortalis-G720, Mali-G720 and Mali-G620 GPUs.
Cadence Digital Flow for Arm TCS23
Through this latest collaboration, Cadence delivered comprehensive RTL-to-GDS digital flow Rapid Adoption Kits (RAKs) for 3nm and 5nm nodes to help customers achieve power and performance goals using the new Arm TCS23. The Cadence tools optimized for the new Arm TCS23 include the Cadence Cerebrus Intelligent Chip Explorer, Genus Synthesis Solution, Modus DFT Software Solution, Innovus Implementation System, Quantus Extraction Solution, Tempus Timing Signoff Solution and ECO Option, Voltus IC Power Integrity Solution, Conformal Equivalence Checking and Conformal Low Power. Cadence Cerebrusprovided Arm with AI-driven design optimization capabilities that resulted in 50% better timing (TNS), a 10% reduction in cell area and 27% improved leakage power on the Cortex-X4 CPU, empowering Arm to achieve power, performance and area (PPA) targets faster.
