Written by Nick Farrell



Coming out in 28nm poly SiON

ARM has signed an agreement with SMIC to offer the Artisan platform for the China-based foundry’s (PS) process. Under the deal, ARM will provide a physical IP platform for SoCs targeting the smartphone, tablet, wireless and digital home markets.

The physical IP platform has a set of memory compilers, standard cells and logic, and general-purpose interface products. According to an SMIC press release the deal will mean that the outfit gets access to the popular ARM Artisan standard cells and next-generation memory compilers. ARM’s standard cell libraries and memory compilers incorporate multi-channel and mixed Vt features for power efficient designs.

Dipesh Patel, executive vice president and general manager, Physical Design Group, ARM said that the Artisan standard cells and memory compilers deliver the features, quality and rigorous silicon validation that customers demand to achieve fast time-to-market.
