Samsung Announces FinFET “Milestone”

Samsung Electronics claims it has surpassed a milestone in the development of 14-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology. The company says it has successfully taped-out multiple test chips at this technology node, including an ARM Cortex-A7 processor and an SRAM-based chip. The company says its existing relationships with companies  -- ARM, Cadence, Mentor, and Synopsys -- enabled  them to combine the process technology, design methodology, tools, and IPs needed to successfully create these small FinFET devices. The company says it is making available a process design kit its customers can use to develop 14nm FinFET chips. (PhysOrg)(Mentor Graphics via Business Wire)(Samsung via Business Wire)
