When EDA users first started considering using cloud services from Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and others, their initial focus was getting access for specific design functions, such as long logic or circuit simulation runs or long DRC runs, not necessarily for their entire design flow. If you choose to use the cloud this way, you… Read More
Having worked at several semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) companies, I know how important it is to have a strong design data management platform for tracking the development and distribution of SIP products. Everyone doing semiconductor design should care about design data management. But for an IP company, it is … Read More
As companies scale by adding more engineers, there is a tendency to spread across multiple design sites as they strive to hire the best available talent. Multi-site development also impacts startups as they try to minimize their burn rate by having an offsite design center such as India, China or Vietnam.
Both the IoT and automotive… Read More
