Siemens Joins Intel Foundry Services’ EDA Alliance Program

PLANO, TX, USA, Feb 9, 2022 – Siemens Digital Industries Software announced it has become a charter member of the Intel Foundry Services (IFS) Accelerator – EDA Alliance, a program committed to establishing an ecosystem for the design and fabrication of next generation System-on-Chip (SoCs) manufactured on IFS’ leading-edge process technologies.

As a member of the Intel Foundry Services (IFS) Accelerator, EDA Alliance, Siemens plans to collaborate closely with IFS to optimize best-in-class IC design tools, flows and methodologies for Intel’s world-class processes.

The initiative promotes collaboration between IFS and its ecosystem partners, with a focus on reducing risk and tackling design barriers while accelerating time-to-market for mutual customers’ products. IFS Accelerator – EDA Alliance partners receive early access to Intel process and packaging technologies, allowing them to co-optimize and enhance tools and flows to best realize Intel’s technology capabilities.

“We are excited to announce the IFS Ecosystem Alliance as a major step forward for Intel’s foundry ambitions,” said Rahul Goyal, vice president and general manager for Intel Product & Design Ecosystem Enablement. “We are pleased that Siemens EDA has joined the program. The combination of Siemens’ world-class EDA offerings and IFS’ leading-edge process technologies will provide design teams across the industry with the solutions needed to deliver in today’s competitive IC markets.” 

As part of the alliance, Siemens plans to collaborate closely with IFS to optimize best-in-class IC design tools, flows and methodologies for Intel’s world-class processes. The initial Siemens EDA product lines certified by IFS include the industry-leading Calibre® nm platform, as well as the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) platform for leading-edge circuit verification targeting nanometer analog, radio frequency (RF), mixed-signal, memory and custom digital circuits. 

“With the increasing importance of semiconductors in the global economy, Intel’s commitment to the foundry market through IFS is an important new source of innovative capacity for advanced products,” said Joe Sawicki, executive vice president, IC-EDA for Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Siemens is proud to collaborate with IFS to help provide software solutions that are tuned to allow mutual customers to get the most out of Intel process and packaging technologies.”
