Cadence Design Systems has launched IP cores for high-end mobile audio as well as gigasample ADCs for 28nm to support 60GHz wireless.
An early shift to finFET processes is making developing IP libraries more challenging.
STMicroelectronics pushes on with FDSOI despite dissolution of ST-Ericcson joint venture that provided the lead customer for the process.
GlobalFoundries and Samsung described how they are readying finFETs for production at CPTF 2013 and how the 28nm processes will have a long shelf life.
The Mentor chief discusses ESL-based low power, emulation, 32nm to 20nm and using tools in the cloud.
STMicroelectronics offers 28nm process to smaller scale users through CMP and Soitec
The troops will be out in force next week to claim progress on 20nm AMS design flows that take manufacturability into account.
