Advanced Computing in the Age of AI | Friday, June 9, 2023 Unveiled as Industry’s 1st Full-Stack, AI-Driven EDA Suite for Chipmakers 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 29, 2023 -- At its annual Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) Silicon Valley Conference, Synopsys, Inc. today launched, a suite of AI-driven solutions for the design, verification, testing and manufacturing of the most advanced digital and analog chips.

For the first time, engineers can now use AI at every stage of chip design, from system architecture to design and manufacturing, and access the solutions in the cloud. Renesas, a leader in the automotive space, is already using to shave weeks off product development times with enhanced silicon performance and cost reduction.

The EDA suite includes AI-driven solutions:

  • Digital design space optimization to achieve power, performance and area (PPA) targets, and boost productivity (used in 100 production tape-outs by January 2023).
  • Analog design automation for rapid migration of analog designs across process nodes.
  • Verification coverage closure and regression analysis for faster functional testing closure, higher coverage and predictive bug detection.
  • Automated test generation resulting in fewer, optimized test patterns for silicon defect coverage and faster time to results.
  • Manufacturing solutions to accelerate development of lithography models with high accuracy to achieve the highest yield.

"Increased complexity, engineering resource constraints and tighter delivery windows were challenges crying out for a full AI-driven EDA software stack from architectural exploration to design and manufacturing – and we've delivered it," said Shankar Krishnamoorthy, GM of Synopsys EDA Group. "With solutions, our customers' ability to search design solution spaces across multiple domains is in hyperdrive. They're finding optimal results far faster as the .ai learns run-to-run, and it's transforming their ability to meet and beat tough design and productivity targets."

Industry Leadership in AI-driven Semiconductor Design tools are now in use by 9 of the top 10 semiconductor companies, establishing Synopsys as an early leader in this space. With each design project, the solutions' AI engines continually train on unique data sets, allowing them to become more adept at optimizing results over time.

"AI has the potential to reshape virtually every field, and its benefits for the semiconductor industry are hard to overstate," said Vivek K. Singh, VP, Advanced Technology Group at NVIDIA. "We're working alongside leading companies like Synopsys to accelerate and improve production and open new frontiers for the industry."

According to industry analyst Patrick Moorhead from Moor Insights & Strategy: "AI is transforming the semiconductor industry, enabling engineers to create more complex chips that humans unaided would be unable to produce. The horizons AI will open up are hard to imagine, only we know we'll be able to move faster and do more than we can now–including how we tackle major global issues such as hunger, epidemic control and climate change. Synopsys is now clearly taking the lead in infusing AI throughout the chip development flow and we should applaud their investment in the industry's future."
