Bayes Collaborates with Findora to Securely Distribute its Analog EDA Tool Suite and IPs

February 24, 2021 inPartnershipsby Findora

Findora announced today that the company will integrate its solutions with Bayes, a pioneer in electronic design tools including a leading simulator and analog synthesizer. 

Bayes is a pioneer in applying Findora’s leading-edge Blockchain and Zero-Knowledge-Proof (ZKP) technology to revolutionize the Analog EDA and IP business. Unlike digital IP, there are a large number of small-size analog IPs in the analog design space, and the industry has been calling for a revolutionary simulator and smart synthesizer for decades. By leveraging the latest in Machine Learning and AI technology, Bayes is overcoming the last barrier of the semiconductor EDA tools industry. Now offering a lightweight portable database to collect data with a trackable and auditable level of access control, Bayes has developed a more efficient way to distribute the analog EDA and IP throughout the industry. 

“Bayes will be focusing on the ML-based synthesizer and simulator tools while leaving the IPs database’s distribution and authentication to be managed by Findora. This will also help to secure the dynamic storage and sharing of IP. The ultimate goal of our EDA tool suite is to make the analog design more efficient and scalable and the IP synthesizable and portable. Our vision is to create a new ecosystem for the wide adoption of our leading-edge analog EDA tool suite and IP,says Dr. William Yi, CMO of Bayes.

Findora is a blockchain network that leverages zero-knowledge proof technology to ensure privacy for confidential transactions or smart contracts while remaining auditable. Findora supports confidential processing, verification, and asset issuance for any encrypted IP. 

“Findora’s Zero-Knowledge-Proof (ZKP) technology is the ideal application case for superior IP authentication and protection while still remaining auditable. It achieves transparency, all changes are trackable, and the entire system is auditable. Theoretically, it will create a balance between design efficiency and IP protection,” says Matt Arney, Head of Growth at The Findora Foundation.

 

About Findora

Findora is a blockchain protocol founded in 2017 by John Powers, the former CEO of Stanford University’s $25 billion endowment fund. Recently, Dr. Whitfield Diffie, the winner of the 2015 Turing Award in computer science and one of the best-known modern cryptography gurus in the world, joined Findora as its senior advisor. At the core of the Findora blockchain protocol is a confidential ledger that supports encrypted transaction processing, verification, and asset issuance.
