SMIC-Synopsys Collaboration

Collaborating to Achieve Your Design Success

Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) and Synopsys collaborate to provide optimized design manufacturing solutions to achieve your design success. Established in 2000, SMIC is one of the leading dedicated semiconductor foundries in the world and the largest and most advanced foundry in China, providing integrated circuit (IC) foundry and technology services for a broad range of nodes ranging from 0.35μm to 28nm. Synopsys and SMIC have teamed to offer enablement for these processes, including qualified tools and node-optimized IP.

Synopsys’ Optimized Design Environment for SMIC 28nm HKMG Process

Synopsys and SMIC collaborated to deliver an optimized design environment for SMIC 28nm HKMG process technology based on Synopsys' Lynx Design System. By teaming together, we are delivering a production-proven design solution based on Synopsys' Galaxy™ Design Platform that allows designers to use the latest leading-edge technologies for their most challenging SoCs. SMIC and Synopsys’ collaboration enables IC designers to accelerate their designs into manufacturing, with a flexible, lower-risk design system and faster time-to-market with SMIC's 28nm process technology.
