HLS for Vision and Deep Learning Hardware Accelerators

Deep learning applications are exploding, especially those that use images for computer vision. We see these applications in everything from self-driving cars to significant advances in healthcare. However, AI-infused applications that need to be deployed at the edge as inference solutions, are challenged by the power and performance needed to execute them. Leading companies like NVIDIA, Google, Bosch, Qualcomm, and many others have turned to High-Level Synthesis (HLS) to address this. Using HLS in their design and verification flow enables them to go from idea to silicon, with PPA (power, performance and area) that is equivalent to hand-coded RTL, but in a fraction of the time.

This 8 part technical webinar series is designed for those that know very little about HLS and those familiar with its concepts, but want real examples applying it to computer vision and deep learning implementation. We recommend watching the videos in order for a full understanding.

Enhance Your Layout Productivity Using Schematic Driven Layout (SDL)

June 10, 2021

Live Webinar


This webinar will provide an overview of how to take a schematic from S-Edit and push your netlist directly to L-Edit using Schematic Driven Layout (SDL). We will also cover productivity features in L-Edit that will allow the layout designer to quickly arrange instances and draw and verify routing connections based upon the connectivity that is transmitted using SDL.

What you will learn:
  • Pushing a schematic netlist from S-Edit to L-Edit
  • Using flylines in L-Edit
  • Manual assisted routing in L-Edit
  • Using the SDL Navigator in L-Edit
  • Checking connectivity in L-Edit on routed nets
  • Syncronization between S-Edit and L-Edit
  • ECO indications
Who should attend:
  • Analog IC layout engineers
  • Layout managers
