TSMC certifies the Ansys RedHawk and Ansys RaptorH family of multiphysics solutions – including Ansys Redhawk-SC Electrothermal – for next-generation CoWoS-S and InFO-R advanced packaging technologies. The certification encompasses die and package co-simulation and co-analysis for extraction, power and signal integrity analysis, power and signal electromigration (EM) analysis and thermal analysis. This comprehensive suite of power, thermal, signal integrity and EM analysis tools will help simulate, calculate and alleviate reliability issues, enabling optimal electrical performance.
“The result of our collaboration combining Ansys’ multiphysics solutions and TSMC’s CoWoS and InFO advanced packaging technologies helps our mutual customers address their design complexity and challenges,” said Suk Lee, senior director of the Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC. “Through our ongoing partnership with Ansys, customers can improve and validate their cutting-edge designs to satisfy stringent performance and reliability standards.”
“To meet demanding reliability requirements for Wi-Fi systems, 5G mobile devices and high-speed wireless components, customers require a comprehensive multiphysics simulation solution that addresses power, reliability, and thermal issues across the entire chip, package and system,” said John Lee, vice president and general manager, Ansys. “Collaborating with TSMC, our mutual customers will circumvent these challenges, enable first-time design success and expedite time to market with our leading-edge multiphysics simulation platform.”
