White Paper Overview

The demand for third-party public cloud resources in conjunction with electronic design automation (EDA) applications such as the Calibre® nmPlatform is growing stronger every day. We are now at a nexus where computational demand, technology and enhanced security make it both possible and necessary to leverage the cloud to get your next integrated circuit (IC) design to market. Let’s briefly explore why the cloud became a viable option for EDA, and then discuss how your company can use it to expand your compute options at both established nodes (e.g. 45nm to 28nm) and leadingedge technologies (e.g., 7nm to 3nm).

In this white paper by Siemens, we'll examine how the relentless growth in semiconductor computational needs means that not only has the number of checks gone up, but the types of checks have expanded, and the number of check operations has grown drastically, so the overall compute is exponentially larger than it ever was historically.
