In chip design 、 In many aspects of manufacturing , Lithography and other core equipment play a crucial role . Little imagine , Among the many core devices ,EDA Tools are the real top priority .
domestic EDA Welcome the dark horse
Why say EDA Tool is an important equipment of lithography ？ This is because ,EDA The main use of tools is in chip design . without doubt , Chip design is the bottom process of the whole chip industry , Only with excellent design can we talk about chip manufacturing in the future 、 Sealing test and other processes .
However , Just like the lithography machine , At home EDA The field also faces a neck dilemma . however , After years of hard work , There are also many dark horse enterprises in the domestic industry , For example, Qijie Technology .
Qijie technology is a company founded in 2014 Young enterprises in , The company's “ Representative work ” That is EDA Tools EasyECO, The tool can automatically repair Functional ECO problem , That is, it can realize automatic logic function change .
Popular speaking , In the whole process of chip design , The logic construction in the early stage has a high degree of automation , Later, it needs more logic correction . And because of foreign ECO Monopoly of tools , At present, most domestic enterprises still use the traditional manual correction method .
therefore , The breakthrough of Qijie technology is of great significance . It is reported that , The founding team of Qijie technology has won international awards for three times in a row CAD The champion of the competition , The technical strength is recognized by the international chip design field .
Break through completely A long way to go
at present , Qijie technology's ECO The tool has been tested by dozens of world-class chip design companies , And has been widely praised ,EasyECO It's already possible to 7nm Inspection of chip process circuits .
For domestic EDA In the field of tool development ,EasyECO No doubt it fills a part of the gap . And represented by Qijie Technology , More and more technology enterprises will realize EDA Breakthrough in tool Segmentation , So as to form a complete set of technical system .
From this point of view , domestic EDA It's just the beginning of our breakthrough . In the global market ,EDA Three giants Synopsys、Cadence and Mentor 90% of the market share , The same is true in the domestic market .
On the one hand, it is the monopoly of international giants , On the other hand, the domestic industry is facing a serious shortage of talents 、 The technological level is weak 、 Poor market awareness and many other problems , It can't be solved completely in a short time .
Besides Qijie Technology , Huada nine days 、 Core vision and many other domestic enterprises are making continuous efforts , The domestic EDA The talent training system is also gradually improving , This is for EDA The localization of tools is good news .
At the end
Predictably, , Group development will be an important direction for domestic semiconductor industry to break through . With chip design 、 Production and other upstream and downstream industrial chain cooperation , domestic EDA The spring of tools will really come .
