Primarius NanoSpice™ Simulator Certified for Samsung Foundry 5nm Process Technology


Primarius Technologies today announced that its NanoSpice™ universal parallel SPICE simulator has been validated and certified for Samsung Foundry’s 5nm technology. NanoSpice™ helps Samsung Foundry’s customers to achieve precision accuracy.  

Samsung’s 5nm process technology is engineered to improve overall yield, reduce power consumption and improve performance over previous process nodes, which requires fast and accurate circuit simulation and verification tools to support advanced IC designs. Verified under Samsung Foundry's EDA certification program in this process technology, NanoSpice™ provides stable convergence for analog IPs, large capacitance with large netlist including post-layout information, supporting the latest OMI(open model interface) which help Samsung Foundry’s customers to design with full confidence, shortening design cycle while achieving the highest accuracy.

As a breaking generation high-capacity, high-performance parallel SPICE simulator, NanoSpice™ is designed for the most challenging simulation jobs, such as large post-layout analog circuit simulations that require high capacity, speed and accuracy all at the same time. Its superior parallelization technologies enable efficient circuit simulation up to 50 million circuit elements. 

"Samsung and Primarius together achieved success with NanoSpice™ certification at Samsung Foundry's 5nm process. The collaborative partnership allows Samsung and Primarius to deliver the competency to verify advanced and innovative IC designs to help drive the rapid growing IC markets and applications." said Sangyun Kim, Vice President of Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics.

“Samsung has been a long-term customer of our EDA products and solutions and we continue to advance our technology to cope with the simulation challenges ahead with cutting edge technologies.” remarked by Dr. Zhihong Liu, Primarius’ Chairman and CEO. “We embrace the opportunity to be part of the ecosystem supporting this critical process node, NanoSpice™ build with performance and accuracy to solve the toughest design verification problems with its full range of simulation capacities from small blocks to full chip designs, and can help achieve goals that would be difficult to reach without our circuit simulation solutions.
