GlobalFoundries qualify Cadence Pegasus Verification System
The qualification was GF’s confirmation that Cadence’s Pegasus Verification System meets the rigorous accuracy and runtime targets that users require when focused on advanced GF nodes.
The Pegasus Verification System offers several benefits to customers designing on GF 12LP/12LP+ and 22FDX technologies. Designed to provide massively scalable runs, the Pegasus Verification System provides fast turnaround times and more predictable design cycle times with design rule checks, layout versus schematic, and design for manufacturing.
The technology features tight in-design integration with Cadence’s Innovus Implementation System and Virtuoso System Design Platform, which allow improved productivity and checks throughout the design process. Designers can also easily fulfil mandatory DFM requirements by leveraging integrated hotspot detection.
Following the certification, Richard Trihy, vice president of Customer Design Enablement at GF said: “Our collaboration with Cadence helps ensure that customers can use the qualified Pegasus Verification System to create high-quality designs in high-growth markets using our 12LP/12LP+ and 22FDX platforms.
“Through the availability of the collateral, we’re also giving customers a fast path to adoption so they can quickly start reaping the benefits of our technologies.”
