Realizing the benefits of digital twins is more complicated than translating data between tools.

Semiconductor Engineering


Semiconductor design, manufacturing, and test are becoming much more tightly integrated as the chip industry seeks to optimize designs using fewer engineers, setting the stage for greater efficiencies and potentially lower chip costs without just relying on economies of scale.
The glue between these various processes is data…

Prototypes are transforming rapidly to take on myriad tasks, but they are hampered by a lack of abstractions, standards, and interfaces.

Semiconductor Engineering


Chipmakers are piling an increasing set of demands on virtual prototypes that go well beyond its original scope, forcing EDA companies to significantly rethink models, abstractions, interfaces, view orthogonality, and flows.
The virtual prototype has been around for at least 20 years, but…

How prepared the EDA community is to address upcoming challenges isn’t clear.

Semiconductor Engineering


Dennard scaling is gone, Amdahl’s Law is reaching its limit, and Moore’s Law is becoming difficult and expensive to follow, particularly as power and performance benefits diminish. And while none of that has reduced opportunities for much faster, lower-power chips, it has significantly shifted the dynamics for their design and manufacturing.
