4 Why is TSMC Creating Libraries? To create a comprehensive choice of industry-leading standard cell, I/O and memory libraries in the leading process technologies, complementing internal offerings with 3rd party partner offeringsTo productize the cells used in wafer process development, and test them in real-world EDA flows, to provide process-tuned design architectures that fully utilize TSMC’s silicon technologyTo set the industry standard for quality with TSMC 9000 compliant productsTo fulfill increasing demand for segment-targeted building blocksTo utilize distribution partners with strong, global field organizations to serve designers throughout the design cycle
