AWS for Industries

AWS at DVCon US 2021 – Join us

Design and Verification Conference 2021 (DVCon)

The Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) is the leading event covering the application of languages, tools and intellectual property for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. Sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative™, DVCon brings chip architects, design and verification engineers, and IP integrators the latest methodologies, techniques, applications and demonstrations for the practical use of EDA solutions for electronic design.

Raising the Verification Bar: Cloud-Based Simulation Increases Verification Efficiency

Synopsys and AWS will be hosting a joint tutorial at DVCon 2021 on Thursday March 4th 9:00AM – 11:00AM PST “Raising the Verification Bar: Cloud-Based Simulation Increases Verification Efficiency”. We’ll be walking through an example of how to set up the cloud environment and what steps are needed to run VCS on AWS. Register now for this workshop.

Verifications account for almost 70% of the time and resources consumed during chip development. Moving some or even all of logic simulation to AWS allows customers to free up valuable on-premises resources for other workloads. Small and medium size customers can make use of more compute than they would otherwise have available allowing them to tackle verification workloads previously only possible for the largest chip development teams. Large customers can run larger and more comprehensive verification suites for increased coverage without impacting other teams, even during tape-out.

The tutorial will cover some challenges and demonstrate how to deploy Synopsys Verification Continuum ® on AWS using the Scale-Out Computing on AWS solution. Please check out Synopsys’ blog for this event:
