AI-Driven EDA Reference Flow and IP for Multi-Die Designs

Synopsys offers a comprehensive and scalable multi-die solution for fast heterogeneous integration. The solution, from silicon to systems, enables early architecture exploration, rapid software development and system validation, efficient die-package co-design, robust die-to-die connectivity, and improved manufacturing and reliability. Adopted by multiple leading customers, Synopsys 3DIC Compiler, a key component of the multi-die solution, is integrated with Ansys® RedHawk-SC Electrothermal™ multiphysics technology, to address the power and thermal signoff critical for 2.5D/3D multi-die designs. In addition, the solution maximizes system performance and quality of results at a rapid pace with Synopsys 3DSO.ai, an autonomous AI-driven optimization engine for 2.5D and 3D multi-die designs.

Synopsys is developing IP for Intel Foundry process technologies, providing the interconnects needed to build multi-die packages with reduced integration risk and accelerated time-to-market. The combination of Synopsys IP and Synopsys 3DIC Compiler can enable up to 30% reduction in effort and 15% improvement in quality of results (as measured by margin) compared to traditional manual flows by automating routing, interposer studies, and signal integrity analysis.1
