Is Democratization of Chip Design Already Happening?

DescriptionSilicon has become ubiquitous in a way none of us could have imagined. No longer restricted to powerful servers, silicon content has found its way into many systems. Bespoke silicon is no longer rare – and in many cases a necessary step towards differentiation. Be it automotive, mobile or edge, silicon content continues to increase. However, silicon design and manufacturing continues to be accessible to just a few – with a substantial barrier to entry. The panel will discuss how far we have come (or how far behind we are) when it comes to democratizing silicon.
