As we approach Thanksgiving, it's worth reflecting on the many things we must be grateful for. Among them is the world of technology, which is constantly innovating to bring about a more sustainable future. One area where this is particularly evident is in the semiconductor industry, where artificial intelligence (AI) is being used to enhance chip design and create new possibilities for innovation. As we reflect on the many things we are thankful for here at Cadence, we are incredibly grateful to our customers and vendors who partner with us in making the world a better place.
The Impact of Cadence Products on the World
Our tools and technologies are integral to at least one product that you use on a daily basis.
Our products are making a significant impact on the world, and we are thrilled to see our customers doing incredible things with them. For instance, Neurinnov uses Cadence's products to restore hand movements in patients with complete tetraplegia following high-level spinal cord injury. Butterfly Network leveraged Cadence's design and analysis technology to create the world's first 3D ultrasound imaging system that can fit in your pocket. The Leibniz University of Hannover’s Institute für Mikroelektronische Systemes built next-generation commercially oriented hardware systems for digital hearing aids with increased computation performance using Cadence's tools. The University of Manchester used Allegro tools to design the chips and boards of their SpiNNaker machine, the largest neuromorphic computer in the world that is being used to model the human brain.
We are proud to be part of countless stories of helping our customers bring smiles to more people every day.
Our Sustainability Efforts
Cadence's impact goes beyond just creating cutting-edge technology. As the effects of climate change become more severe, our impact goes beyond just creating cutting-edge technology. Cadence is taking an innovative approach to reducing power consumption and promoting sustainable practices in the tech industry with the aid of AI. In today's world, technology is integral to almost everything we do, and exploring new ways of reducing energy consumption is crucial. We collaborate with our clients to efficiently design their electronics systems and manufacture powerful, sustainable products.
Our computational software algorithms detect opportunities to achieve up to 30% overall power reduction. With the help of our AI-based tools, we explore numerous combinations of options to reduce further power consumption, which can lead to up to 35% additional savings.
We believe in taking a holistic approach to system design in order to contribute to a better future. Cadence is excited to support our customers and partners in this endeavor because if we don't seize sustainability opportunities, there may not be enough electricity to power the future of semiconductors. We hope Cadence can help everyone create sustainable products and systems that will help secure a better future.
Artificial Intelligence to Forge Intelligent Design
The chips that power AI systems are becoming increasingly powerful, resulting in faster data processing, improved machine learning models, and superior overall performance. This constant evolution in semiconductor technology is paving the way for AI to expand its reach into various fields, such as healthcare and finance, increasing its impact on our daily lives.
As a transformative force, AI stands out as a game-changer, molding and influencing every facet of our existence, enabling us to impact how we do things positively. The realm of electronics is no exception, as it has wholeheartedly succumbed to the influence of this technological superpower. AI has revolutionized the semiconductor industry by propelling the power of electronics to unprecedented heights, raising the bar and challenging the semiconductor segment to keep up with its exponential computational performance. By integrating AI and EDA tools, designers can unlock unprecedented levels of computational power and energy efficiency, pushing the boundaries of AI hardware and accelerating the development of innovative AI-driven applications that shape the future of technology. According to Forbes, Cadence AI Can Increase Chip Design Quality And Chip Designer Productivity Over 1000%.
The GenAI Solution
Over the years, Cadence has researched deeply into AI and integration. AI algorithms have enhanced core tools, expanding our capabilities. Recent progress has extended to design flows, with new generative AI (GenAI)-powered products across various domains. This distinguishes us from our EDA history. Our innovation is powered by AI-driven reinforcement learning for multi-run optimization, which produces superior chips swiftly.
We provide a comprehensive generative AI solution, covering everything from chip to system to product. It seamlessly integrates with Cadence's existing design tools and platforms, allowing designers to leverage the power of generative AI without disrupting their workflows.
The Cadence generative AI solution has been successfully applied in various fields, from drug discovery to life sciences and specification to manufacturing. In drug discovery and development, generative AI can speed up the design of new drugs and molecules, thus optimizing their efficacy and safety. In life sciences, generative AI can enable the creation of innovative biomedical devices and systems, leading to better patient care and outcomes.
At the heart of Cadence's AI-driven approach to chip design is reinforcement learning (RL). This technology utilizes multiple chip floor designs to achieve the best power, performance, and area (PPA) configurations. This approach and Cadence's deep expertise in EDA have significantly improved chip design quality and designer productivity.
