The challenge with designing at newer and more advanced process nodes is that things generally don’t get less complex and expensive, much as we might want this. Still, the upside to each new process node, generally, is that you can build more highly efficient and targeted devices to address more markets and applications in a timely fashion.
For the complexity and cost challenges, however, there’s good news: Arm and Samsung Foundry just announced a comprehensive, foundry-sponsored physical IP platform, including an eMRAM compiler at 18FDS (18nm FDSOI). In addition, the Arm offerings for 18FDS include three POP IP packages for Arm Cortex-A55, Cortex-R52 and Cortex-M33 processor IP.
The platform will help drive new leading-edge designs in power-sensitive applications in 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), and other market segments. It’s the industry’s first, fully comprehensive physical IP platform that includes an eMRAM compiler at 18FDS.
