Keysight's PathWave and RFIC Design Software Now Support Samsung’s 28nm SOI Process

Keysight has announced the integration of the latest interoperable process design kit (iPDK) from Samsung for the 28FDS (28nm fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator) process technology into the PathWave - Advanced Design System (ADS) and RFIC Design (GoldenGate). As a result, designers can jumpstart chip design work, reducing development time and costs.

Keysight’s PathWave is a software platform that enables agile and connected design and test. It accelerates product development by modernizing engineering workflows, connecting simulation and measurement data throughout the design, test, and manufacturing lifecycle.

Samsung’s 28FDS process technology combines high performance and low power consumption with responsiveness to power management design techniques and is showing promise for modern mobile and consumer multimedia chips. The new iPDK from Samsung enables designers to quickly create circuit designs and perform simulations.

The integration of Samsung Foundry’s 28FDS technology for design and simulation with Keysight PathWave design solutions is the beginning of a new partnership between the two companies under Keysight’s Foundry Program. Mutual customers will be able to start their designs in PathWave ADS, or leverage the interoperability feature, to bring in designs from other EDA tools with Samsung’s 28FDS iPDK and do accurate circuit simulations and optimizations in PathWave ADS.
