Siemens EDA at TSMC OIP 2021

By Sumit Vishwakarma

Though the COVID19 pandemic swept the global economies around the world, semiconductor sales increased by 10% in 2020 fueled by demand for desktops, laptops, iPad, and smartphones, which enabled work from home and homeschooling. And as with toilet paper and sanitizer, this surge in demand disrupted the semiconductor supply chain resulting in chip shortage at a scale the world has never seen before.

To address this global semiconductor chip shortage, foundries play a pivotal role. Today TSMC dominates the production of the world’s most sophisticated ICs and has committed to overcoming the shortage by pledging to spend $100B over 3 years to expand chip capacity.

Every year, TSMC hosts an annual event Open Innovation Platform which brings together their diverse customers and partners who are instrumental in nourishing the chip design industry. This year, Siemens EDA is honored to have three Analog Mixed-Signal sessions selected in this conference. These sessions highlight various Siemens EDA solutions from Analog FastSPICE, Symphony – Mixed-Signal Platform, Solido Variation Designer, and Caliber.

Siemens EDA AMS Solutions are certified by TSMC down to 3nm FinFET, and our latest press release with TSMC shows our strong commitment to the ongoing partnership to support next-generation process technologies.
