The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) pioneered the pure-play foundry business model. By choosing not to design, manufacture or market any semiconductor products under its own name, the key to TSMC’s success has always been to focus on its customers’ success.
TSMC-made semiconductors serve a global customer base that is large and diverse, with a wide range of applications used in a variety of end markets, including smartphones, high performance computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, and digital consumer electronics.
The TSMC EDA Alliance reduces design barriers for customer adoption of TSMC process technologies. As an EDA Alliance partner, Siemens EDA works closely with TSMC's design technology teams to address mutual customer design needs through the enablement of new EDA tool features that align with TSMC advanced process development roadmap, as well as the implementation of TSMC's design methodology in reference flows. Through this collaboration, TSMC and Siemens EDA enable mutual customers to better achieve their PPA target in a shorter period of time.
