AI Could Be The Next Killer App In Semiconductor Design

by | Apr 20, 2020 | Research Paper

It goes without saying that designing complex semiconductors is an extremely challenging engineering process. While the chips themselves are small, and the individual features on the chips are tiny, as small as 7 nanometers (seven billionths of a meter), the intricacy of the design process is astronomical.
