Silicon Frontlines’ ESRA CDM certified in Samsung Foundry process to down to 4nm technology
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, USA -- November 15, 2022 -- Silicon Frontline Technology is proud to announce that they have been accepted as a partner in Samsung Foundry SAFE™ Program. Through in-depth collaboration, Silicon Frontlines’ ESRA CDM has been certified in Samsung Foundry process to down to 4nm technology.
“We are very pleased to join Samsung SAFE™ program. This is a great achievement for ESRA - our full-chip ESD solution, and we look forward to our continued partnership with Samsung Foundry to meet the needs of our common customers,” says Dermott Lynch, COO of Silicon Frontline Technology
“ESD CDM design has become increasingly challenging as IC technology has scaled down and IC design complexity has increased. After extensive evaluation of Silicon Frontlines’ ESD solution, we found its’ CDM failure risk detection in IC design meet our demanding accuracy and capacity needs, enabling us to make ESD sign-off for full-chip verification a reality,” said Chanhee Jeon, Master (Vice President of Technology) at Samsung Electronics.
Silicon Frontline ESRA (Electrostatic Reliability Analysis) is a full-chip ESD analysis solution. It identifies weak points in ESD protection circuit and supports ESD sign-off for both HBM and CDM standards. ESRA delivers extraction, analysis, and debugging capabilities in one integrated environment with the capacity to analyze the full-chip, validated to 15B transistors. Highlighted violations permit engineers to perform corrections at any time in the design process.
