SAMSUNG Develops Design Tool for System LSI Chips

Competition over the design of highly sophisticated semiconductors is severe today. Samsung Electronics has helped to boost its competitiveness in non-memory products by being the first in the industry to develop a design tool for system large-scale integration (LSI) chips. Samsung's new "Right Ware" is an integrated CAD software program used to design system LSI chips. It cuts at least 20% of the time required to complete the Register-Transfer Level (RTL), the first stage in designing system LSI devices. With Right Ware, Samsung Electronics expects to shorten development lead-time and strengthen its ability to respond to market demands. The company will save approximately US$2 million each year in these software costs. If Right Ware was not developed, Samsung would have had to purchase hundreds of RTL software programs for US$10,000 apiece. RTL uses hardware technology language to design the operation and transfer of data from the non-memory element. This is a very important step that represents about half of the entire process for designing system LSI products. In 2000, Samsung expects its System LSI Division sales to reach US$1.8 billion, an 80 percent increase year on year. As the company concentrates more on high value-added products, it expects to bring in US$5 billion annually by 2005. About Samsung Electronics Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., with 1999 sales revenue of US$22.8 billion is a world leader in the electronics industry. The Korea-based concern has operations in about 50 countries with 54,000 employees worldwide. The company consists of three main business units: Digital Media, Semiconductors and Information & Communications Businesses.
