5nm Samsung foundry implemented Cortex-A53 SoC dev platform
Korea based ASIC design service and semiconductor chip fabrication service provider ADTechnology developed Cortex-A53 based SoC development platform and is physically taped/implemented based on Samsung Foundry 5nm process tech. The platform named ADP500 is customer-ready architecture with arm subsystems NIC-400, SoC-400, GIC-400 and I/Os and interface Ips such as LPDDR4, DDR4, PCIe Gen3 and USB2.0. This chip design platform can save time and help PPA optimization for semiconductors targeting automotive, edge AI and consumer applications.
ADP500 tested up to 2.6GHz of performance with a silicon area of 1.43mm2 and recorded dynamic power was 66.6mW/GHz (by one Core plus Top) which is excellent power optimized hardening result, as per ADTechnology.
ADTechnology also to begin general arm hardening and implementation services up to leading edge Cortex-A78 cores and its subsystems to global ASIC customers.
“Samsung foundry has been reinforcing our SAFE ecosystem to accelerate customers' semiconductor innovation ranging from artificial-intelligence processors to 5G communication as well as automotive chips." said Mijung Noh, VP of Foundry Design Service Team at Samsung Electronics. "We are pleased to offer this high performance, power efficient 5nm design platform with ADTechnology and ARM, looking forward to seeing wide adoption in the industry"
“We are proud to announce the launch of our own 5nm platform. We believe Samsung Foundry 5nm is very competitive and there are many opportunities from global customers. So, we will keep evolving and expanding our 5nm platform more to include advanced arm cores and interface Ips so that customers can have more options to choose. With our 5nm platform offering, we hope we could help our global customers’ market success.” Said JK Park, CEO of ADTechnology
