AI in Semiconductor Design

By Lee Harrison

AI has become an industry buzzword that has been embraced but also feared by the semiconductor industry. In a sector where safety and security are critical, the perception of using AI in IC design tools where process and predictability of results are critical, it’s important that adding AI enhancements and capabilities does not send designers running for the hills.

In our fourth episode of the Siemens Security by Design podcast, we are joined by Ron Press, Sr. Director of Technology Enablement for the Tessent Product Group within Siemens Digital Industries Software.

In this episode, you will gain valuable insights into how AI is shaping the semiconductor industry’s future and its alignment with Siemens’ commitment to innovation. You will also get to hear more about the potential of AI to enhance sustainability by accelerating solutions and conserving resources through digital twin modeling and AI optimization.

What You Will Learn in this Episode:

  • AI in semiconductor design and testing. (1:59)
  • AI in EDA, trade-offs and data security. (6:41)
  • AI-driven EDA tools for automotive chip design. (10:34)
  • AI in semiconductor industry sustainability and innovation. (14:00)
