Julia Lang and VLSI design

It is known from various articles on internet that Julia lang has better speed and efficiency.

Can it be used in place of C++/SystemC in the VLSI design fields?

is that some embedded hardware stuff?

my understanding is that julia needs the julia runtime which is huge for small hardware like embedded.

Hi, Yes that is related to embedded stuff. But, I’m not suggesting to run Julia on hardware like an Arduino or any other microcontroller, but instead wondering about possibilities in using it in chip design.

Yes, it is possible, a GDS writer is provided in https://github.com/platawiec/Devices.jl but as far as I know there are no design or analysis tools specifically for VLSI like SPICE.

Thank you for sharing this information. Really amazing to see something like this.
