AI in PCB Layout Design
« on: May 08, 2023, 12:31:20 pm »
Hello there, I’m trying to better myself in understanding the influence of AI in terms of PCB design.

Have anyone tried InstaDeep’s deepPCB, or do you have any knowledge about it? Or have you seen any articles/papers discussing it or its functionality? I would be happy to hear!

It's a problem that should be solvable with AI, but so far there's nothing that does even a passable job at it.

its solvable, but projects with electronics and simulations arent open source - you need a lot of data to teach ai something . Maybe companies may make own ai versions for more complex design without errors - but i dont think it will be free.

How come you say it should be solvable by AI? Are there consensus that AI should solve unsolved NP-hard problems?

Its not so much that you need to "solve" the PCB, it doesn't need to be perfectly solved, it just needs to be good enough.
