Virtual Experience

Why Attend?

The Hot Chips Symposium has been known as one of the semiconductor industry's leading conferences on high-performance microprocessors and related integrated circuits.  The three days of the conference will feature two tutorials, two keynotes, a panel discussion and around 25 presentations on a variety of subjects related to microprocessors and integrated circuits.

Who Should Attend?

This event provides an opportunity for chip designers, computer architects, system engineers, press and analysts, as well as attendees from national laboratories and academia to see presentations on the latest technologies and products.

Keynote Spotlight

Does Artificial Intelligence Require Artificial Architects?

Monday, August 23 | 12:30PM-1:30PM PDT

Over the past 35 years, our industry has brought about a 10 million-fold increase in semiconductor sophistication.  But as we are propelled into an era of exponential, cloud-to-edge intelligence, it’s clear that the emergent compute architectures we seek will be born in a field of systemic complexity without bound (the ‘SysMoore’ era).

Fostering that next 1000X beyond Moore’s Classic will ignite the epoch of autonomous design instruments  ̶̶- super-tools precision-guided by machine-learning algorithms, high performance computing platforms, and massive data sets.

Synopsys Founder and CEO Aart de Geus will provide a first look at data that chronicles how autonomous design flows are catalyzing the ‘SysMoore’ era  ̶̶- transforming architecture, artificial intelligence, and even architects.

Learn About DSO.ai from Aart de Geus

Synopsys announces a major breakthrough in electronic design technology with the introduction of DSO.ai™ (Design Space Optimization AI), the industry's first autonomous artificial intelligence application for chip design. Inspired by DeepMind's AlphaZero that mastered complex games like chess or Go, Synopsys' DSO.ai solution is an artificial intelligence and reasoning engine capable of searching for optimization targets in very large solution spaces of chip design. DSO.ai revolutionizes chip design by massively scaling exploration of options in design workflows while automating less consequential decisions, allowing SoC teams to operate at expert levels and significantly amplifying overall throughput.

Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM) Analytics

Randy Fish, director of product marketing at Synopsys, explains the need for Silicon Lifecycle Management, a new solution to address the entire health of IC design from design through in-package lifespan.
