Mentor has added three companies since its acquisition a little over a year ago - and there's method to this buying spree.
The rapid growth of interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence has prompted Synopsys to bring all its AI IP together in a microsite and brochure.
IP supplier FotoNation has decided to embrace the use of high-level synthesis in the creation of cores for smartphones and other high-integration, low-power systems.
The embedded FPGA is beginning to find a market, with communications leading the way but machine learning likely to drive further adoption.
Fifteen years on from the design gap that triggered the IP revolution, implementation costs have created a new one.
Machine learning is gradually moving into implementation and verification tools for EDA.
For nVidia chief scientist and Stanford professor Bill Dally, now is a great time to be involved in hardware design, thanks to the rise of AI.
Mentor will be present throughout the DAC program but with a particular focus on machine learning, artificial intelligence and automotive challenges.
DAC 2018 will see Synopsys focusing on close links with foundry partners, as well as exploring ways to exploit the potential of machine learning, in both SoC architectures and SoC design flows.
Synopsys applies AI to speed PrimeTIme, as part of wider strategy to exploit machine learning to ease chip design
