Advanced Chip Simulator for GlobalFoundries

GlobalFoundries is a global semiconductor leader, with 10 foundries around the globe, including six in Singapore. To respond quickly to the requirements of its customers, GlobalFoundries Singapore needed an updated chip simulation system. Huawei provided a new open source computing platform with the capacity to scale rapidly for enhanced reliability. Using this new platform, GlobalFoundries increased the performance of its simulation system by more than 10 times, so simulations can now be completed in an hour instead of a day. As an added benefit, the hardware failure rate at GlobalFoundries reduced by 15%, enhancing the company's reputation for reliability in the provision of chip simulation services.
