Fractal accepted as partner in the Samsung Foundry SAFE program

Fractal Technologies is proud to announce they are accepted as a partner in the Samsung Foundry SAFE program. "This is a great achievement for our Crossfire IP Validation solution" says Rene Donkers, CEO of Fractal Technologies. We are very happy Samsung Foundry accepted our application for the Samsung Foundry SAFE program and we are looking forward working with Samsung Foundry and our common customers that will benefit from this partnership.

About Crossfire

Mismatches or modelling errors for Libraries or IP can seriously delay an IC design project. Because of still increasing number of different views required to support a state of the art deep submicron design flow, as well as the complexity of the views themselves, Library and IP integrity checking has become a mandatory step before the actual design can start. Crossfire helps CADS teams and IC designers in performing integrity validation for Libraries and IP. Crossfire makes sure that the information represented in the various views is consistent across these views. Crossfire improves Quality of your Design Formats.

About Samsung Foundry SAFE program

The SAFETM program ensures deep collaboration between the Samsung Foundry, ecosystem partners, and customers to deliver competitive and robust System on Chip (SoC) designs based on certified key design components including Process Design Kit (PDK), reference flows with Design Methodologies(DM), Intellectual Property (IP), and ASIC design support.

The SAFETM program is based on three pillars :

  • EDA/DM : Provides extensively tested PDKs and reference flows (with design methodologies) that are backed by Samsung Foundry’s certification.
  • IP : Provides a full set of silicon qualified, application specific IP offerings from the early stage of process technology development. Customers can view a full list of IP solutions offered through SAFETM by accessing Samsung Foundry’s B2B site, CONNECT.
  • Design Services : Connects mid- to small-sized companies with qualified ASIC design services and support. Using design service partners of SAFETM, customers will benefit from easy access to process technology information, competitive price conditions, and committed resources for their SoC design success.
