back to article Nvidia hooks TSMC, ASML, Synopsys on GPU accelerated lithography

Nvidia's latest gambit? Entrenching itself as a key part of the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain. At GTC this week, the chipmaker unveiled cuLitho, a software library designed to accelerate computational lithography workloads used by the likes of TSMC, ASML, and Synopsys, using its GPUs. The idea behind the platform …

    Great idea. Imagine finding a bug in a design that contains billions of transistors and when the tests pass, because AI wrote them too.

    cuLitho, seriously? LOL

    I guess nobody is going to talk about how cuLitho just sounds like "culito" in Spanish, ROFL, look it up.

    I have already seen some amusing memes. Spanish is my mother tongue, and everytime I read something about this is funny, difficult to take it serious.

    Corpos thinking that the whole world speaks only English, nothing new.
