Keysight EDA at the 2024 Design Automation Conference

Keysight EDA at the 2024 Design Automation Conference
by Daniel Payne on 06-17-2024 at 8:00 am

DAC starts June 24th and I can already feel the buzz of excitement building up as I receive updates from EDA vendors like Keysight EDA. Talking with Scott Seiden, Director Strategic Marketing, Keysight EDA Portfolio, I learned that they have the largest booth on the first floor, now that’s a statement that caught my attention. This year Keysight EDA is a sponsor of “I Love DAC,” a way for anyone to freely attend – Keynotes SKYtalks, TechTalks, DAC Pavilion and Exhibitor Forum, Exhibits, Tuesday Career Development, Hands-on Training, DAC Networking Events.

Here’s what to expect from Keysight EDA at DAC this year as major topics:

  • Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM)
  • RF/uW Design and Simulation
  • HPC and Workflow Automation

Niels Faché, VP & GM, Keysight EDA will be speaking at two events:

  • Pavilion Panel Session, “Best of Both Worlds: Bridging the Gaps in Engineering Software for Semiconductors and Systems”, Monday, June 24
  • SKYTalk, “New EDA Methodologies are Transforming Engineering Lifecycle Management”, Tuesday, June 25

Simon Rance, Director of Product Management and Strategy, Keysight EDA told me that at DAC they will be showing and talking about SOS for design data management, and Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) HUB. With these tools it’s all about managing all of the pieces: IP, knowledge of an IC design, integrating IP blocks, bill-of-materials, traceability, and optimizing workflows from design concept to Tapeout including RTL/IP/ and security signoff, including TSMC flows. Expect an ELM new product introduction at the DAC event, stay tuned.

Daren McClearnon, Product Manager, Keysight EDA shared how they want to elevate your design intelligence by providing three key capabilities in their tools for enterprise EDA:

  • Open and interoperable – OpenAccess, Python-based Aps
  • Tools for high-frequency and high-speed – 3D, RF, UCIe-based support
  • AI-ready platforms – support multi-vendor flows, global optimization

Here’s a diagram of these capabilities:

The suite of Keysight EDA tools shown in the middle of the diagram are for:

Daren explained how these tools are used in open and interoperable design flows with tools from Cadence and Synopsys, plus the recent addition of a Python-based API.  ELM enables co-design, co-optimization and parameterization to be used. They also have a Chiplet PHY Designer to help you model and analyze chiplet interconnect from D2D to D2D PHY at a system level.

Engineers can do electromagnetics plus thermal analysis using the RFPro Circuit tool, starting a design in Virtuoso and interoperating.

Three Keysight EDA specialists will also have engineering track poster presentations at DAC:

  • Back End Design, “Accelerate RF Board BOM Simulation with ADS Design Automation”, by Zhen Zhan, Senior Applications Engineer Scientist
  • Front End Design, “Overcoming Collaboration Hurdles in High-Tech Product Development with Keysight Tool on Azure Infrastructure,” by Amit Varde, Director of Strategy and Solutions
  • Back End Design, “True-Hybrid SaaS Cloud Architectures for EDA Workloads”, by Nupur Bhonge, Senior Solutions Engineer

To get an overview of what Keysight EDA is all about, you should stop by booth #1501 and listen to the theatre presentation, Monday through Wednesday, June 24-26, and stick around to win a prize. Keysight’s customers and partners will also be presenting in the booth theater. Check out the schedule.

Summary

Keysight EDA is attending DAC in 2024 with an expanded presence, so you likely will have to send more than one person to find out what they are up to this year. I plan to stop by booth #1501 and blog about them at DAC, so look for my daily tweets with #61DAC. You can also visit the DAC landing page at Keysight EDA.
