Synopsys' DSO.ai solution shows AI technology advantages and expedites the process of searching for optimal solutions by allowing for autonomous optimization of broad design spaces.
FREMONT, CA: Synopsys has announced the adoption of DSO.ai (Design Space Optimization AI), Synopsys' award-winning autonomous artificial intelligence (AI) design system, by Renesas into its advanced automotive chip design environment. With DSO.ai's reinforcement learning technology, Renesas can augment its capability of searching vast design spaces for better performance-power-area (PPA) solutions, pushing the envelope on energy efficiency for cutting-edge automotive ICs without forgoing operating frequency. This allows Renesas to explore a larger scale of choices in existing chip design workflows, paving an accelerated path to meeting PPA targets.
"Our collaboration with Synopsys on DSO.ai exemplifies how AI can lead to disruptive design solutions, revolutionizing the way we design automotive products," stated Satoshi Shibatani, director, Digital Design Technology Department, shared R&D EDA division at Renesas. "We expect that DSO.ai will identify better PPA solutions, and going forward, we are excited to expand our collaboration with Synopsys to unlock higher productivity for our design teams."
Synopsys' DSO.ai solution shows AI technology advantages and expedites the process of searching for optimal solutions by allowing for autonomous optimization of broad design spaces. The DSO.ai engines take in large data streams generated by chip design tools and use them to explore search spaces, observe how a design progresses and adjust design choices, silicon-technology parameters, and workflows to guide the exploration process towards multi-dimensional optimization purposes. AI makes it easy to standardize reuse across the organization, allowing design teams to consistently operate at expert levels and also improve compute resources' efficiency. Design teams can reimagine the chip design workflow with Synopsys DSO.ai to improve PPA, maximize the benefits of silicon process technologies, and reduce time to market for new or derivative products.
