GPUs May Speed UP EDA Algorithms

The sequential EDA algorithms of old cannot keep pace with increasing design complexity, which is driving the industry to look at parallelism and other computational architectures such as the graphical processing unit (GPU). A 10X or 20X speedup for gate-level simulations means that a test that runs today in a week will run in less than a day, and a test that runs today in a month will run i... » read more
