2019 has been a tough year for semiconductor companies from a revenue standpoint, especially for memory companies. On the other hand, the EDA industry has seen another robust growth year.

Leading the charge is AI. “Big data and AI applications, including machine learning and deep learning, are now key drivers for the electronics industry,” says Rob van Blommestein, head of marketing at OneSpin Solutions. “This has led to the emergence of heterogeneous computing platforms, both traditional SoCs with embedded FPGA fabric and massive FPGAs that qualify as SoCs, too. Xilinx’s 7nm Versal adaptive compute acceleration platform (ACAP) is a good example of this trend.”
