GSS Licences Simulation Tool Chain to GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Gold Standard Simulations Ltd. (GSS) today announced a multi-million dollar contract to license its complete TCAD/EDA tool suite to GLOBALFOUNDRIES.
The fully integrated and automated tool chain includes GARAND, the GSS ‘atomistic’ TCAD simulator; Mystic, the GSS statistical compact model extractor; and RandomSpice, the GSS statistical circuit simulator.
The GSS tool suite is the world’s only fully integrated tool chain that performs simulation- based Design/Technology Co-Optimisation (DTCO) in advanced bulk, FDSOI and FinFET CMOS technologies, including statistical variability and reliability.
“The GSS simulation tools offer significant competitive TCAD advantages that support technology development by providing a seamless flow from Monte Carlo transistor simulation through physical simulation of statistical variability, extraction of accurate statistical compact models, and circuit simulation,” according to Francis Benistant, TCAD Manager at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “This integrated tool-chain provides a highly efficient TCAD environment that greatly accelerates technology design and circuit co-optimisation, allowing GLOBALFOUNDRIES to accelerate its technology development,” he added.
“We are delighted to have GLOBALFOUNDRIES as a GSS customer. I believe this relationship will prove to be highly symbiotic and will lead to advances in both GLOBALFOUNDRIES technology offerings and in driving future developments in the GSS tool chain” comments Professor Asen Asenov, CEO, Gold Standard Simulations Ltd.
