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

Webinar – Next Generation DDRM Needs, Solutions
by Bernard Murphy on 05-02-2017 at 7:00 am

I’m a believer in product life-cycle management (PLM) for semiconductor design. It’s not an attention-grabbing topic like faster verification or improved PPA in implementation, but now massive IP-based design is routine, IP’s are sourced from multiple suppliers each cycling though multiple revisions and now that design … Read More
