Samsung Foundry provides fundamental RTL-to-GDS design
methodology documents and scripts(so-called "Foundry DM") to help
customers to design sophisticated products
in Samsung Foundry process.

Reference Flow

Samsung Foundry DM integrates Samsung Foundry's decades of experience in building top-notch mobile and consumer products by tackling all the UDSM process node challenges. It is silicon-proven and PPA-optimized providing the shortest path to the most competitive product in the industry. Also, through in-depth collaboration with EDA companies, Samsung Foundry provides an EDA reference flow.
With EDA reference flow development, all major EDA tools are certified in the Samsung Foundry process and the EDA toolchain / flow is validated with Samsung Foundry standards.

Application Specific Solution


As the automotive industry moved to autonomous vehicles, a variety of safety measures have been integrated into modern vehicles. Currently, a huge number of electronic components are integrated into vehicles as a part of implemented safety mechanisms. Automotive SoCs must be designed to give a certain level of quality/reliabilty, and functional safety. Accordingly, automotive SoCs must be compliant with two representative standards such as ISO 26262 on functional safety and AEC-Q100 on stress test-driven qualification. Samsung Foundry provides an automotive design methodology that addresses the need of customers to obtain a qualified and reliable design. The figure illustrates the dedicated solutions for automotive SoC design which should be considered to comply with automotive standards and automotive-specific requirements. In the figure, solutions illustrated in navy boxes are tied to ISO 26262 and solutions illustrated in green boxes are tied to AEC-Q100 and AEC-Q004. For more information on each solution, refer to the respective documents.

Internet of Things

The IoT applications demand an ultra-low voltage and reliable design methodology to extend the lifetime of battery-operated devices, such as smart cards, wireless sensors, and hearable, wearable, voice-controlled products. Ultra-low-voltage design dramatically reduces energy consumption while enabling reliable operation in IoT applications. However, it is very vulnerable to process, voltage, and temperature variations. Samsung Foundry ultra-low voltage solutions have addressed all of these challenges and it includes many advanced design solutions for energy-efficient design.
