Silimate

The co-pilot for chip designers

Silimate is the co-pilot for chip designers; it finds functional bugs, predicts PPA issues, and recommends real fixes in real-time alongside RTL development. Today, chip teams spend most of their 12-18 month design cycles converging to functional correctness and optimized PPA (power/performance/area). With Silimate, chip designers write correct, PPA-optimized RTL code from the onset and build better chips in less time.

Company Launches

TL;DR: Silimate helps chip teams converge to functional correctness and optimized PPA faster, so that they can build better chips in less time.

❌ The Problem

The world needs specialized semiconductor chips to be built faster for the rapidly-evolving software workloads in datacenters and at the edge.

Yet, chip teams today face time- and effort-intensive bottlenecks in converging to functional correctness and optimized PPA (power/performance/area). These bottlenecks account for most of the typical 12-18 month chip development cycle, and impede chip teams’ ability to make important changes to their designs in late project stages — when real, data-driven issues tend to surface from simulations.

✨ Our Solution

Silimate finds functional bugs, predicts PPA issues, and recommends real fixes in real-time alongside RTL development. Chip designers get a context-aware RTL companion that helps them write correct, PPA-optimized RTL from the onset, and build better chips in less time.

We’re live with chip design teams today.

If you’re a chip designer or lead a chip design team, we can help you eliminate weeks/months from your design cycles. Reach out to us to schedule a live demo!

🌎 Why Now

Death of Moore’s Law, an explosion of custom chip architectures, geopolitics (CHIPS Act), talent shortage, massive demand for AI chips, and increasing complexities in advanced chip design – we’re building the pickaxe for the silicon renaissance.
