Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Synopsys is looking to add generative AI to its EDA tools to boost chip design productivity.

The company already uses a range of AI techniques in its tools from deep neural networks (DNNs) to recursive neural networks (RNNs). These are incorporated into the, and tools that have been used for well over 100 chip tapeouts.

Now the company is looking at the transformer network technologies used in generative AI (Gen-AI) to further enhance the tools says founder and retiring CEO Aart de Geus.

“We intend to harness Gen-AI capabilities into We see this delivering further advances in design assistance, design exploration, and design generation,” said de Geus.
