Research Teams Selected to Lower Barriers to Modern System-on-Chip Design Announced

Under DARPA’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI), research teams from academia, commercial industry, and the defense industrial base have been selected to address today’s SoC design complexity and cost barriers. The goal is to create an environment that could catalyze the next wave of U.S. semiconductor innovation and broaden the competitive field for circuit design. As a part of the ERI Design research thrust area, the list of research teams selected to take on two new programs—the Intelligent Design of Electronic Assets (IDEA) program and the Posh Open Source Hardware (POSH) program—include the University of California, San Diego; Northrop Grumman Mission Systems; Cadence Design Systems; Xilinx, Inc.; Synopsys, Inc.; University of Southern California; Princeton University; and Sandia National Laboratories.
