Siemens, AMD, and Microsoft collaborate on EDA in the cloudCloud processing provides IC design companies with an opportunity to reduce time-to-market by accessing vastly more compute resources than are typically available when rolling into a design tapeout crunch. High-scaling tools can scale to thousands of cores to reduce runtimes…but who has a couple of thousand cores sitting around idle? The cloud gives you access to significantly more hardware for those times when you are under the greatest schedule pressure, such as block or full chip verification.

In this paper, learn how Siemens EDA, AMD and Microsoft Azure teamed up to demonstrate a solution to dramatically reduce design closure times and costs of cloud usage.
