Aerospace & Defense Newsletter

A quarterly newsletter on aerospace and defense

Issue #2: EDA for Superconducting Electronics and Quantum Computing

Welcome to the Aerospace & Defense Newsletter

In each of these newsletters we’ll provide an update on different topics and areas where Synopsys has been working across the industry on strategic technologies. 

In this issue, we take a look at the area of superconducting electronics (SCE) and its importance to quantum computing and design. Synopsys, working in collaboration with IARPA, is on the frontline of developing tools and flows to enable the design of circuits operating near 0 Kelvin. The implementation of SCE is an important stepping stone and enabler of quantum computers which are beginning to scale in size and complexity. Quantum computers will be especially suited for aerospace, defense, and security applications.

Let us know what you'd like to see in future newsletters!
