GloalFoundries and Synopsys announced this week that they have jointly developed a portfolio of automotive-gade IP solutions for GF’s 22FDX process technology. The various IP blocks are designed for automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 1 temperatures and can meet 15-year automotive operation requirements. The IP blocks will enable developers of SoCs for automotive applications to design, validate, and qualify automotive-grade chips faster. SoCs and other semiconductor devices (e.g., memory, storage, etc.) that meet AEC-Q100 Grade 1 requirements are mandated to support -40°C to +150°C ambient operating temperature range and pass a number of qualification reliability tests. The latter includes reliability and wear out tests designed to ensure that a semiconductor device will work for prolonged amounts of time even in extreme conditions. The portfolio of DesignWare IP, which...
