Key Benefits

Early Architecture Exploration for Multi-Die Designs

To realize best system performance for the target workloads, designers must efficiently explore the appropriate partitions and system-level interconnect fabric. Reusing IP effectively to meet time-to-market and ensuring testability are among some of the challenges that require fast and early analysis-driven exploration. With early architecture exploration and analysis, system designers can optimize partitioning for the best performance, minimize interconnect traffic, and perform efficient power and thermal planning.

Software Development for Multi-Die Designs

Software teams can quickly develop, integrate, and test the software by having access to proven virtual die models. Assembling virtual models in a multi-die prototype allows for efficient software bring-up, debug, and analysis. Software teams can run large amounts of software in lockstep with the hardware using a unified, hybrid emulation and prototype environment.

Design Implementation & IP for Multi-Die Designs

To mange the implementation complexity of tens to hundreds of millions of die interconnections, designers require a highly integrated and scalable co-design and analysis platform. This platform can help designers in efficiently exploring, implementing, and analyzing their multi-die designs. To assemble known good dies in an advanced package quickly, designers need standards-compliant IP that offers essential latency, PPA, and interoperability features. 

Manufacturing & Health for Multi-Die Designs

Designers can help improve the long-term health and reliability by testing, diagnosing, repairing, calibrating, and improving operational metrics at every phase of the multi-die lifecycle. In addition, access to traceability and analytics across the dies for in-design, in-ramp, in-production and in-field optimization can help designers improve cost, quality, and reliability. Allow binning of high-quality and high-performing dies for consideration during package assembly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is multi-die technology?

Multi-die technology integrates multiple heterogeneous dies (or chiplets) into a single package. Each die typically performs a specific function, and they are interconnected via standards such as Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) to form a cohesive system. Multi-die technology offers flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional monolithic chip designs.

How does multi-die technology differ from traditional monolithic chip design?

In traditional monolithic chip design, all components are fabricated on a single piece of semiconductor material. In contrast, multi-die technology assembles multiple heterogeneous dies, fabricated on different foundry processes, into a single package. This allows for greater customization, mix-and-match of technologies, and improved yield management.

What are the benefits of using multi-die technology?

Multi-die technology accelerates scaling of system functionality, reduces risk and time-to-market by re-using proven dies, lowers system power while increasing throughput, and offers new product variants for flexible portfolio management.
