How AI Revolutionized IC Validation and Characterization

By Spencer Acain

Artificial intelligence has been a hot topic for the last few years as it starts to disrupt the status quo of countless industries but for EDA tools such as Solido, AI and ML have already become an indispensable proven technology. Solido leverages powerful machine learning abilities to provide answers that would normally require millions of simulations to acquire down to just a few thousand, offering a glimpse of where the AI industry may be going.

In this episode, Spencer Acain is joined by Amit Gupta, VP & GM of the Analog/Mixed-Signal Division at Siemens EDA and serial entrepreneur and founder of Solido Design Automation before its acquisition by Siemens EDA in 2017. Amit discusses why he and his team were such early adopters of AI/ML technology and the benefits of using it in the EDA space.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The role of AI in Solido (1:58)
  • The benefits of AI in EDA (4:00)
  • Validating multi-billion transistor chip designs using ML (8:32)
  • Why Solido was at the forefront of AI/ML adoption (15:16)
  • AI collaboration across industries (21:04)
