Tech Focus: Three Trends Shaping the Future of EDA

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022

Niels Faché from Keysight Technologies shares his insights on the key EDA trends impacting the pace of innovation, as more systems companies move to design their own chips and electronic products.

The electronic design automation (EDA) industry is experiencing strong financial growth and is making a vital contribution to the success of much larger semiconductor and electronic systems industries.

The electronic design automation (EDA) industry is experiencing strong financial growth and is making a vital contribution to the success of much larger semiconductor and electronic systems industries.

Trend 1: Domain-Specific Design

Electronic product design is moving toward domain-specific orientation. What impact does domain-specific design have on EDA tool developers and users?

Niels Faché:

It is not enough anymore for product developers to just consider the traditional specifications for a chip or board.

They must also now consider the context in which their products will be integrated and used.

Drivers of design for context in product development teams include increased system complexity, more demanding performance and cost requirement tradeoffs, and shorter development lifecycles.

To address these issues, EDA vendors and users are seeing closer collaboration in the ecosystem from developers of components (such as an RFIC), to a sub-system (such as a radar), and a system (such as an autonomous drive system) to address integration challenges and optimise performance.

Design-for-context raises several challenges and opportunities for EDA tool providers such as:

Singapore Lags Global Index in Readiness for Digital Transformation

Monday, September 12th, 2022

Dell research suggests that Singapore and the APJ lags the world in its “Breakthrough Benchmark” – a measure of the readiness for digital transformation.

Dell Technologies’ research from over 40 countries details how despite two years of accelerated digital transformation, only 5% of the Singapore workforce has an appetite for digital change.

I was looking through a study report from Dell on digital transformation and couldn’t help but notice that the survey results seem to indicate that Singapore and APJ seems to lag the global index for its “Breakthrough Benchmark”.

The survey of 10,500 respondents from around the world measured participants’ readiness for technological change and placed them in four benchmark groups:

  1. Sprint: Traiblazers ready to chase after innovation and technological change.
  2. Steady: Poised to adopt technological change selected by others.
  3. Slow: More inclined to hold back and observe / deliberate rather than take action.
  4. Still: Take a pessimistic view of innovation based on perceived risk. Tend to anticipate problems and resist proposed technology innovations based on perceived risk.

Respondents in the “Sprint”and “Steady” groups tend to be more confident that they or their organisation will advance in areas of technology adoption, while respondents in the “Slow” and “Still” groups are more likely to see the potential risks involved and retreat.
