Synopsys Keynote: Welcome to the Era of SysMoore

Aart de Geus
Chairman and co-CEO, Synopsys

Even for an industry hardened against systemic and scale complexity, building a world with 1000X more compute by the end of the decade will require revolutionary approaches to architecture, groundbreaking autonomous design systems, and disruptive engineering from cloud to edge. Founder and co-CEO Aart de Geus is set to lift the veil on a highly anticipated portfolio of design instruments that will ignite an era of exponential opportunity for humankind, and shine as a beacon of the Synopsys “Yes, if…” spirit of limitless possibility.

Industry Keynote: Increase Taiwan’s semiconductor influence through creating an EV platform

Bob Wei-Ming Chen
VP of Hon Hai Technology
Head of Semiconductor Business Group


Taiwan is a giant in semiconductor industry however the market share in automotive IC is not high. Part of the reasons is because the automotive industry is very conservative and forms a close system to the outside world. EV is a new industry with sizable TAM and attractive CAGR. The use of advanced semiconductor is increasing. It is a new market that is worth Taiwan’s semiconductor companies to explore. MIH is an independent platform founded by Hon Hai to resolve the high development cost, long development time, insufficient resource in current EV development. It can help semiconductor players to access the modularized design information at the very beginning. This presentation discusses Hon Hai’s endeavors in EV semiconductor including founding the MIH platform and make it independent. Hon Hai’s semiconductor deployment and services to semiconductor companies will also be presented.

Technical Committee Paper Award

Committee Introduction
Congratulations to Our Best Paper Winners
Listen to the committee review result and learn more about paper award winners this year.
Best Paper Award
(中文簡報) PT Power ECO Machine Learning – Effective Training Data Selection
Meng Hsiu Tsai
GUC
PT power ECO machine learning can reduce the run time effectively based on high coverage training data. How to select the effective training data is important for machine learning. More training data can achieve higher coverage but induce long run time to load training data. This paper will compare the TAT/QoR for various training data selection scenarios (by different timing closure stage). Finally, an effective training data selection methodology will be summarized.
Best Paper Award
(中文簡報) Speed Up Simulation Regression TAT Using AI/ML
HH Tseng
Realtek
Verification continues to be one of the top contributors of compute costs for any chip design. Increase in design complexity also increases verification complexity and in turn the cost, hence we need solutions targeted to improve verification efficiency. There is huge value to the user in tuning the simulation environment for optimal performance since HDL simulation contributes significantly to the compute cost. The process of simulator performance tuning today is manual, depends on design/verification environment being simulated and needs expert knowledge of simulator. In this session we present DPO, an AI/ML based VCS simulator performance optimizer that targets simulation TAT reduction. It is a mostly automated system that analyzes the simulation environment, identifies and optimizes performance bottlenecks. We present the practical process, methodology and results of deployment of DPO in a production environment. DPO overcomes the above listed challenges of simulator performance tuning and contributes positively to verification efficiency by reducing the compute cost for HDL simulations.
Best Paper Award
(中文簡報) Productivity Improvement with ICCII Freeform Macro Placement
DS Fu
GUC
Floorplan is the key to good P&R QoR. It usually costs lots of iterations to analyze and finetune macro location to meet design's PPA spec. ICC2 FreeForm Placer is a new generation of engine that considers macro and STD cell's location together. It provides good QoR result compared to manual floorplan while reducing the total turnaround time of Floorplan exploration. In this presentation we show GUC's real case using ICCII FreeForm Macro Placement to tapeout. And provide some experience sharing and enhancement discussion about ICCII FreeForm Placement.
Outstanding Paper
(中文簡報) Ultimate R2N PPA Consolidation by FusionCompiler UPS Flow
Will Lin, Yuuka Huang
MediaTek Inc.
Performance/Power/Area consolidation is a legacy challenge to digital IC design flow. Take two cases as example. Case1: at synthesis stage, over-constraint is a common solution to secure PPA quality till place-and-route stage. However, Over-constraint can also lead pessimistic PPA result. Case2: traditional synthesis flow can't consider clock tree synthesis. This kind of situation can make a natural gap between synthesis and physical design as well and get a optimistic PPA result at synthesis stage. Above examples can introduce PPA un-stable through whole implementation flow. In this work, we will demonstrate how FusionCompiler UPS flow consolidate PPA in decent range from synthesis to post-route.
Outstanding Paper
(中文簡報) New Enhancements of PowerReplay from User Feedbacks
Kuma Tu
MediaTek Inc.
When the semiconductor technology advances to nanometers, designers aggressively integrate more functions into a very small die area than that with the old technology. In addition, designers also push the design speed to the limit to fulfill the performance requirement of the 3D game and AI computing, etc. Hence, this results in very high power density, and the power consumption, IR, thermal, and System PI all become much worse than before. To predict those impact correctly and efficiently, we adopt the PowerReplay to achieve similar power and IR accuracy with the post-layout simulation but much better runtime than the post-simulation. Recently, we closely collaborate with Synopsys and accomplish several enhancements in the PowerReplay. In this paper, we will share our experiences of applying those useful enhancements on our real projects.
