The TSMC Open Innovation Platform® initiative is a comprehensive design technology infrastructure that encompasses all critical IC implementation areas to reduce design barriers and improve first-time silicon success. OIP promotes the speedy implementation of innovation amongst the semiconductor design community and its ecosystem partners using TSMC's IP, design implementation and design for manufacturability (DFM) capabilities, process technology and backend services.
Crucial to OIP are ecosystem interfaces and collaborative components initiated and supported by TSMC that more efficiently empower innovation throughout the supply chain and, in turn, drive the creation and sharing of new revenue and profits. TSMC's active accuracy assurance (AAA) initiative is key to OIP, providing the accuracy and quality required by the ecosystem interfaces and collaborative components.
TSMC's Open Innovation® model brings together the creative thinking of customers and partners under the common goal of shortening each of the following: design time, time-to-volume, time-to-market and, ultimately, time-to-revenue. The model features:
- the foundry segment's earliest and most comprehensive electronic design automation certification program, delivering timely design tool enhancement required by new process technologies;
- the foundry segment's largest, most comprehensive and robust silicon-proven IP (intellectual properties) and library portfolio; and
- comprehensive design ecosystem alliance programs covering market-leading EDA, library, IPs, Cloud, and design service partners.
TSMC provides the robust design ecosystem, technologies and manufacturing excellence that are the foundation of the IC industry and promote the highest level of collaboration to drive you next innovation with TSMC.
