Synopsys, an electronic design automation company, has announced the launch of a new cloud-optimized electronic design automation (EDA) deployment model that delivers ‘unparalleled levels of chip and system design flexibility’ via a single-source, pay-as-you-go approach.
Synopsys Cloud gives access to the company’s cloud-optimized design and verification products, with pre-optimized infrastructure on Microsoft Azure, to address higher levels of interdependencies in chip development.
“Our new Synopsys Cloud offering promises to be transformative, providing designers the ability to scale up or down in response to their dynamic chip design and verification needs.”Sassine Ghazi, President and chief operating officer at Synopsys
Synopsys is collaborating closely with Microsoft, its preferred cloud partner, to transform the landscape with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) chip development solution on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform.
Customers can use the SaaS approach to directly access and pay for cloud computing resources as well as any Synopsys cloud-enabled design and verification product.
Corporate vice president of Azure Hardware Systems & Infrastructure at Microsoft, Rani Borkar said, “The Synopsys Cloud software-as-a-service solution has been purpose-built on Microsoft Azure for EDA workloads, delivering a flexible design and verification environment to foster the productivity that design teams need.”
Chip development in the cloud represents a way forward for an industry dealing with exploding computational demands as well as ongoing time-to-market pressure.
