Superconducting Electronics Design Automation (S-EDA): Recent Developments and Upcoming Challenges
Tsung-Yi Ho - National Tsing Hua Univ.
The special session offers attendees an opportunity to bridge the semiconductor ICs/system
technology with the superconducting electronics and quantum computing technologies. The special
session will first describe the most ambitious development program for superconducting electronics
circuit design tools to date—the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)
SuperTools Program—and provide a comprehensive overview of the state of design tool
development as well as the circuit technology in the superconducting electronics community.
Earlier design software roadmaps and tools were focused heavily on the device and gate level,
with reasonably simple synthesis at the level of thousands of gates. Superconducting electronics
circuit design tools today are still fragmented, incomplete, and insufficient for the design of very
large scale integration circuits. EDA tools should enable design and verification of integrated
circuits from process modeling right up to full system yield and reliability modeling. Recent
development and upcoming challenges of EDA tools for superconducting electronics will be
discussed. The session will consist of four talks on complementary aspects of these emerging
technologies, including technology overview, circuit technology, manufacturing, test, and physical
design optimization. We believe that the special session will generate interest in this topic, leading
to more research, future challenges, and several open problems in this area. This is a novel and
multidisciplinary topic of relevance to the EDA community.
