Newsletter December 2021 - Julia Computing Launches Cedar Electronic Design Automation (EDA)

16 December 2021 | Julia Computing

Julia Computing Launches Cedar Electronic Design Automation (EDA): Analog circuit design hasn’t changed much since the 1980s when analog designers were pushing buttons and turning knobs in a GUI. Cedar Electronic Design Automation (EDA) from Julia Computing addresses the modern needs of analog circuit designers for better tools to create optimal and robust designs in today’s complex technology nodes. CedarSim is the first analog circuit simulator that is fully differentiable and CedarWaves makes it easy for analog designers to write custom measurements so that specs can be reliably measured and automatically checked. Cedar users can increase productivity dramatically using thousands of high quality open source tools to generate models that leverage data, optimization, machine learning, big data, trend analysis, data sheet generation and more. To book a consultation, please visit Cedar-EDA.com.

Julia is the fastest high performance open source computing language for data, analytics, algorithmic trading, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other scientific and numeric computing applications. Julia solves the two language problem by combining the ease of use of Python and R with the speed of C++. Julia provides parallel computing capabilities out of the box and unlimited scalability with minimal effort. Julia has been downloaded by users at more than 10,000 companies and is used at more than 1,500 universities. Julia co-creators are the winners of the 2019 James H.
