Synopsys GenAI capabilities help accelerate chip design

Synopsys Inc. has released Synopsys.ai Copilot, a generative AI (GenAI) technology to accelerate chip design.

The new capability is the result of a strategic collaboration with Microsoft to integrate the Azure OpenAI Service, which enables GenAI capabilities for semiconductor design.

The Azure OpenAI Service gives customers access to OpenAI's large language models (LLMs) through Microsoft Azure enterprise capabilities. Together, the companies have supported the development of Synopsys.ai Copilot, which combines the generative AI capabilities of Azure OpenAI Service with Synopsys' industry-leading chip design tools and ICs.

"By 2030, there will be a 15% to 30% shortage of chip design engineers," said Shankar Krishnamoorthy, CEO of Synopsys EDA Group. "AI-enabled design will help address these challenges. Working in partnership with Microsoft, we are taking AI-enabled design to the next level with generative capabilities such as conversational intelligence introduced by Synopsys.ai Copilot."

The combination of AI-enabled design capabilities available at scale on high-performance infrastructure can deliver incremental improvements to engineering teams, helping them innovate faster and more efficiently.
