AI Enabling Domain-Specific IC Architectures

Artificial intelligence is providing new capabilities and driving new requirements for the semiconductor industry. For many applications in pattern recognition and data analytics, traditional chip architectures are not providing adequate performance and reduced power needed to execute the newest machine learning algorithms. As a result, there is a major acceleration in the design of new custom chips. This has also stimulated development of new chip design methodologies, many of which involve the use of artificial intelligence to improve the design process. Although AI has been around for over 30 years, key enablers are finally in place that allow AI design and startups to flourish. Specifically, high-performance computing power, the availability of big data, and advanced algorithms are all creating an environment that is encouraging a host of domain-specific AI ‘killer’ applications. At the same time, high-level synthesis design and advanced verification is helping small startups to compete with larger semiconductor companies in creating AI-based solutions.
