Synopsys Awarded Multi-Year IARPA SuperTools Contract

On Wednesday, Synopsys announced a multi-year research and development contract with the U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) to advance EDA tool flows for Superconducting Electronics (SCE). Synopsys will collaborate with experts in the field of SCE as part of the IARPA SuperTools Program to develop a comprehensive set of tools that increase the scale, efficiency, and manufacturability of these designs. SCE has the potential to propel the electronics industry beyond CMOS, enabling a major leap in processing speeds and power efficiency.
