Seraphim

Introducing Uniquify’s all in one ASIC software platform. Seraphim is an in-house framework developed by Uniquify, that helps drive our ASIC designs and projects. Seraphim provides a high degree of automation and configurability that allows engineers to adapt their environment to meet project-specific technical and business objectives. Seraphim’s silicon proven design methodology helps achieve a faster tape-out in a more efficient and predictable manner. Essentially, Seraphim acts as a Data Monitor, Build Manager, Analysis Manager, and Monitoring Manager all integrated together.

About Uniquify

A leader in SoC design services & IP since 2005.

100+ tape-outs with TSMC, Samsung, GF, UMC, & SMIC, including both digital and mixed-signal at 7nm.

Seraphim SoC platform for PD team incubation. The platform has been carefully crafted with over 17 years of SoC knowledge base: 300+ man years.

Proven global team: US, Japan, Korea, India, Vietnam.

Samsung selected Uniquify's PD team and Seraphim platform as a channel partner to all north America Samsung customers because of the consistent and convergent SoC PD flow which stems from the knowledge based SoC platform Seraphim and well-trained PD engineers at Uniquify.

Analysis

Dissects and provides intelligible summaries from generated reports.

Incubation

Recruit, train, deploy, and manage employees

automation

Eliminates the need for many manual tasks. ASIC flows can be run at the touch of the fingertip.

ENHANCEMENT

Strengthens existing ASIC flows

Seraphim Automation

Seraphim utilizes years of Physical Design experience to create a proven flow of EDA tools towards a timely and successful tape-out.  Now any Engineer at any experience level can work as efficiently as the Senior Engineers managing Seraphim.  Seraphim can generate scripts for all stages in the SoC Physical Design process: Synthesis, PNR, Extraction, LEC, STA, DRC, LVS, Physical Verification, Power Analysis, and Low Power Verification.

Seraphim Incubation

Seraphim is easy to learn and aides beginners to become fully-fledged PD engineers quicker.

Project management made easier with Seraphim.  Now every design strategy chosen by an Engineer is documented and can easily be monitored.  Both an individual Engineer progress as well as the entire Team development throughout a project.  All SoC environments are unified and organized allowing Quality of Results to be assessed quickly.  From Place and Route to Static Timing Analysis or Physical Verification, all stages can be monitored in a single location.

Recruit

Seraphim's intuitive design can be understood by fresh college graduates. This greatly opens up the pool of eligible engineers.

Train

Seraphim's automation, summary, and analysis tools greatly increase engineer's growth.

Deploy

Seraphim enabling more engineers will allow for quicker time to market.

Manage

Seraphim's monitor solutions allow for effective product management.

Seraphim Enhancement

Seraphim does not just provide post-EDA tool support, but can also be used to enhance initial design startup.  Seraphim has a known set of initial design strategies proven to give an Engineer the best understanding of a design’s limits.  Seraphim can also be used to review and clean-up design files such as Library, SDC or even the Netlist.  Any problems that can be identified early on can prevent issues that delay the project later.

Seraphim Analysis

Seraphim’s analysis goes beyond just EDA tool outputs.  Seraphim can provide insight to a design that can help minimize the number of iterations needed to reach timing closure.  For example, Seraphim can read the Netlist, SDC and Library files to provide a level of understanding of the design that the EDA tools cannot.  The design can be explored through Seraphim’s Clock Network Trace, Hierarchical Trace, and even Module Connectivity Trace.  A multitude of other information is available to any Engineer for each design of the project.

One example of the type of analysis that Seraphim will provide is the Buffer & Inverter Efficiency Report. For critical paths, Seraphim will show the average distance per delay unit that each buffer or inverter is providing.

In Post-Route STA cell analysis , Seraphim can parse the lib files and analyze whether a cell is optimized well based on its capacitance and transition from the STA reports.
