Abstract

Facing the challenges brought by advanced fabrication processes, the industry is optimising the electronic design automation (EDA) tools with new technologies and business models. By adopting machine learning technologies, EDA tools can improve chip design more efficiently, shorten design cycle and time to market. As one of the hottest trends in EDA industry, open-source EDA tools are expected to accelerate China’s technological breakthroughs. In this webinar, a number of leading international scholars and industry experts will share the latest EDA technologies and trends, new opportunities of open-source and AI-based EDA tools for China and analyse how to make good use of the strengths of Hong Kong to support China’s EDA tool development.
