National security and government applications focus on securing vital information systems and decision networks, requiring scalable design and production capabilities. Securing these chips requires end-to-end capabilities across the semiconductor design and manufacturing life cycle. A closely coordinated effort between leading-edge manufacturers and their EDA, IP and design service partners is crucial to deliver the functional and operational security required by MAG applications.
As the only U.S.-based foundry with the leading-edge process capabilities, Intel Foundry Services (IFS) is uniquely positioned to lead the effort and collaborate with trusted partners to bring state-of-the-art U.S.-based microelectronic design and manufacturing to serve national security and government applications. The IFS United State Military, Aerospace and Government (USMAG) alliance, built on IFS’ leadership role in the U.S. Department of Defense Rapid Assured Microelectronics Prototypes - Commercial (RAMP-C) program, will ensure that EDA tools are optimized to deliver secure design methodologies and flows and enabled to operate in secure design environments, while meeting the requirements of IFS’ process design kits (PDKs). IFS will also work with IP partners to deliver design IP blocks that serve MAG specifications on quality and reliability. The USMAG alliance will provide a secure and scalable path for customers to deploy designs that fully achieve the unique requirements of MAG applications.
