Today, the 2022 World Semiconductor Congress was held at the Nanjing International Expo Center, with the theme of “World Core, Future Dream”, and jointly discussed the development of the semiconductor industry.
At this conference, Chi Yu, deputy director of the Department of Industry and Information Technology of Jiangsu Province, said that in the first half of this year, the total output value of the main business enterprises of the integrated circuit industry in Jiangsu Province reached 135 billion yuan, an increase of 10.5% year-on-year. In the future, Jiangsu Province will accelerate the construction of national innovation platform carriers such as the National Integrated Circuit Characteristic Process and Packaging and Testing Innovation Center, the National Third Generation Semiconductor Technology Innovation Center, and the Nanjing Wuxi National Core Fire Double Innovation Base.
Chi Yu said that at present, the Nanjing EDA Innovation Center has been declared to the Ministry of Science and Technology and is under approval, which is the first EDA Innovation Center in China to report to the Ministry of Science and Technology.
EDA, also known as Electronic Design Automation, is used to complete the functional design, synthesis, verification, and physical design (including layout, wiring, layout, design rule checking, etc.) of the VLSI chip.  lcm tft module
In the 1970s, when chip complexity was low, chip designers could manually input, layout, and route circuit diagrams. Since then, with the development of the chip industry, chip designers have begun to use computer assistance to edit integrated circuit layout, PCB layout and wiring, etc., and the EDA industry has gradually developed and grown.
At present, chip design is inseparable from EDA software, EDA software has become the most important and necessary software tool in the field of integrated circuits, and the EDA industry has also become the most upstream and high-end industry of the entire chip industry.
The domestic EDA leader Huada Jiutian officially landed on the ChiNext board of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange on July 29, becoming the first listed company in the EDA industry on the ChiNext board.
