  • On May 18, 2020, Synopsys, Inc., a U.S. based EDA tools manufacturer, announced a collaboration with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, which is a Taiwan based semiconductor manufacturing giant, to design HPC, Mobile, 5G and AI SoCs.

Introduction to Electronic Design Automation tools

EDA or Electronic Design Automation, also known as Electronic Computer-Aided Design, comprises of portfolio of software tools that assist in designing electronic systems. These electronic systems include the design of integrated circuits and printed circuit boards. These tools revolutionized the design of semi-conductor chips. The EDA tools are used in the design flow of logic gates and layouts. The function of EDAs in design include high-level synthesis i.e. conversion of machine language to digital signals and schematic-driven layouts. In electronic circuit simulation, a simulation software is designed to predict the behavior of the logic gates. Transistors and other hardware involved are emulated by CAD and electromagnetic field solvers. The circuits are then analyzed and processed for functionality, meta-stability, mathematical model tests and physical verification. The techniques of mask data protection and resolution enhancement are used to test the quality of ICs. Built-in self-tests and functional safety analysis is incorporated to meet the compliance requirements as per industry standards. Different EDA software tools are deployed to tackle different production functionalities to produce ICs and semiconductor chips. Some of the common software include AutoCAD, Orcad by Cadence, ARES in Proteus.

Market Size and Forecast
