The new award-winning artificial intelligence (AI) design system DSO.ai enables Renesas to explore a larger scale of choices in existing chip design workflows, paving an accelerated path to meeting performance-power-area (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," said 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 demonstrates AI technology advantages and accelerates the process of searching for optimal solutions by enabling autonomous optimization of broad design spaces. The DSO.ai engines ingest large data streams generated by chip design tools and use them to explore search spaces, observe how a design evolves and adjust design choices, silicon-technology parameters and workflows to guide the exploration process towards multi-dimensional optimization objectives. AI makes it possible to standardize reuse across the organization, enabling design teams to consistently operate at expert levels and maximize compute resources' efficiency. With Synopsys DSO.ai, design teams can reimagine the chip design workflow to achieve better PPA, maximize the benefits of silicon process technologies, and slash lead times to bringing new or derivative products to market.

"Synopsys is committed to innovation leadership and working closely with leading semiconductor companies, like Renesas, on AI design technology," said Stelios Diamantidis, senior director of Artificial Intelligence solutions at Synopsys. "In only its first year in the market, DSO.ai has already helped many customers achieve better PPA solutions in dozens of design projects – all at a fraction of the time and effort typically involved. AI is giving EDA a new dimension for addressing the increased complexity of silicon technologies, accelerating product timelines, and enabling engineering teams to scale."
