Strategic CAD Labs Mission

The Strategic CAD Labs (SCL) is the primary CAD research group at Intel. SCL is part of Intel’s Design Technology department, which supplies CAD tools for CPU design teams. SCL research addresses infrastructure, algorithms, models, applications and design methodology covering the design flow from architecture to layout.

SCL works closely with academia through the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), Gigascale Systems Research Center (GSRC) and via joint collaborations funded internally. The team also works closely with Intel design teams and CAD developers to invent new concepts and productize the results for general use. Researchers in SCL have the opportunity to apply their research on real designs and influence the way microprocessor design is done at Intel.
