DVCLUB Europe | Using ML and AI in EDA Tools

Accelerating Verification and Implementation with Machine Learning for Electronic Design Automation

Conference:DVCLUB Europe | Using ML and AI in EDA Tools
Speaker:Frank Schirrmeister, Sr. Group Director, Solutions & Ecosystem, Cadence Design Systems.
Abstract:

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software has delivered semiconductor design productivity improvements for decades. EDA software utilizes an advanced toolkit of computational software to provide intelligent system design productivity. The next leap in productivity will come from the addition of machine learning (ML) techniques to the toolbox of computational software capabilities employed by EDA developers. Recent research and development into machine learning for EDA point to clear patterns for how it impacts EDA tools, flows, and design challenges. This presentation will update on trends and recent improvements in the verification and implementation flows for semiconductor design.

3 Key Points:

  • AI/ML in EDA Design Flows accelerate productivity and improve quality of results and turnaround time
  • Coverage closure and verification throughput can be accelerated using ML in dynamic verification
  • Formal verification benefits from AI/ML to optimize selection of solvers during proof orchestration
