No good EDA Software , Making a good chip has become empty talk .

Just one sentence , Is enough to show EDA Importance . that ,EDA What is it , Can have such great power ?

Small as the market is , Great importance

According to the ESD Alliance The published data show that ,2020 In the world EDA The market size is just 114.7 Billion dollars . Tell the truth ,EDA The size of the market is not large , Many people may ignore EDA Importance .

But in fact ,EDA But it firmly holds the global trillion dollar chip market . In the early stages of the chip industry , Chip design is not too complicated , It can be done by hand drawing . But now , Tens of billions of transistors are contained in a chip the size of a fingernail , It is impossible to realize chip design by hand .

therefore , As an aid EDA It came into being . Whether it's chip architecture design 、 verification 、 Layout and wiring , Or do Power Analysis 、 Physical implementation , All depend on EDA Tools .

therefore , Located at the top of the chip industry chain EDA To obtain the “ The mother of chips ” The title of .

It's no exaggeration to say , If it were not so EDA Software , The whole chip industry will no longer exist .

Severely monopolized

However ,EDA The lifeline of this domestic chip is in the hands of foreign capital , The three major American enterprises are all over the world EDA Has dominated the market for many years .

It is understood that in the world EDA On the track ,Synopsys Proportion 36%,Cadence Proportion 25%,Mentor Graphics Proportion 14%. It's not hard to see. , The three have formed an oligopoly .

These three companies are among the few in the world that can achieve full tool chain coverage , Have a strong competitive advantage .

and , The three will also EDA The core patents in the field are in their own hands , So as to form higher business barriers .

To 2020 in ,Synopsys hold EDA Of the total patents in the field 31%, by 4463 Pieces of ; and Cadence Hold one 21.6%.

Under such heavy pressure , China EDA It is very difficult for enterprises to break through the encirclement .

What's more? ,EDA The industry still has a high technical threshold 、 Verification with downstream manufacturers is required 、 Limited Market increment and other problems , Have increased domestic production EDA The difficulty of breaking through .

According to the SEMI The published data show that , In the first quarter of this year, Chinese Mainland EDA In the case of a big increase in sales , China EDA The proportion of local enterprises in the market is still less than 15%.

China EDA The situation of being controlled by others is very serious and difficult to change for the time being .

Chinese enterprises break out of the Siege

The good news is that , Even though EDA There are many difficulties in breaking through , However, there are still many people in China who have come up against difficulties . Huada nine days 、 Generalized electron 、 Core vision 、 Xinhuazhang and others are all Chinese EDA The best on the track .

among , The heart is in 11 month 24 It also announced heavy new products , For domestic EDA The development of has injected a force .

This day , Xinhuazhang announces the wisdom of unified underlying architecture V Verification platform , And four models created on this platform EDA Tools : Huajie high performance FPGA Prototype verification system 、 Dome Digital Simulator 、 Gongjing new generation intelligent verification system and gonghan extensible formal verification tool based on word level modeling .

According to Wang Libin, chairman of xinhuazhang , The above products have solved the three major pain points that chip design verification is facing ——EDA Tools lack compatibility 、 Fragmentation of data and EDA Lack of innovation in tools .

Affected by the algorithm engine can not achieve effective interaction 、 Restrictions on sharing , Chip R & D often has to go through a lot of repeated roads . So , Xinhuazhang has created a verification platform for unified underlying architecture , To address compatibility issues .

Data fragmentation further increases the difficulty of debugging, analyzing and verifying the convergence of the results , Making chip verification longer and more difficult . The new platform of xinhuazhang makes use of cloud technology , It greatly increases the flexibility of resource mobilization and resource utilization .

and EDA Lack of innovation in tools , Then make the existing tools and artificial intelligence 、 The integration of new technologies such as cloud native becomes difficult . Need to know , Now the industry is using “EDA 1.0” The design and manufacturing process is in 2000 It took shape in , thereafter “EDA 1.0” Just make up , Without big innovation .

So , Xinhuazhang creates a brand new EDA Tools merge AI And cloud native technology , Achieved innovation and upgrading .

Can see , Xin Huazhang has great ambition , Want to open up “EDA 2.0”.

If China has been following the old path of other enterprises , Run after them , That made in China EDA It will be difficult to break through . Xinhuazhang chose to take the initiative , utilize AI、 New opportunities brought by technologies such as cloud native , So as to highlight the Siege .

At the end

Xinhuazhang has not been established for a long time , stay 2020 year 3 It only came out in June . however , Xinhuazhang has assembled a strong scientific and technological force , With many industry scientists 、 Senior experts 、 Engineers and so on , This enables xinhuazhang to quickly achieve key breakthroughs , To become a domestic EDA A force that cannot be ignored in .

I hope xinhuazhang can continue to work hard , Lead domestic enterprises EDA Break through as soon as possible . meanwhile , Nine Huatian 、 Core vision and other enterprises are also working hard , For domestic EDA Contribute to development .

stay EDA In the market , China has great potential . Also hope that , domestic EDA The day of rise can come as soon as possible .
