Cadence Announces Tapeout of 14nm Test-chip with ARM Processor and IBM SOI FinFET Process Technology

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, announced today the tapeout of a 14-nanometer test-chip featuring an ARM Cortex®-M0 processor implemented using IBM’s FinFET process technology. The successful tapeout is the result of close collaboration between the three technology leaders as they teamed to build an ecosystem to address the new challenges from design through manufacturing inherent in a 14-nanometer FinFET-based design flow. The 14-nanometer ecosystem and chip are significant milestones of a multi-year agreement between ARM, Cadence® and IBM to develop systems-on-chip (SoCs) at the advanced process nodes of 14 nanometers and beyond. SoCs designed at 14 nanometers with FinFET technology offer the promise of a significant reduction in power consumption. "This chip represents a major milestone for advanced node proc...
