Advanced packaging technologies simplify production and increase performance of highly-complex multi-die SoCs as the semiconductor industry is looking at chiplet approach as an alternative to large dies that take a longer time long to develop and are expensive to make. But designing 2.5D multi-die chips has its own peculiarities, which is why Samsung Foundry and its rivals offer their clients a special 2.5D-IC Multi-Die Integration (MDI) design flow that incorporates analysis and implementation for early-stage system-level pathfinding to help overcome potential issues. This month support for Samsung 2.5D-IC MDI flow was added into Synopsys’ chip development software to simplify development process for engineers. Samsung Foundry currently offers 2.5D-IC MDI flow for chips produced using its 7LPP (7 nm with several EUV layers) fabrication process and...
