Sustainability Reporting Considerations for the Semiconductor Industry

Introduction The Semiconductor Industry is working to establish Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) standards with the help of science-based targets. According to the Science Based Targets (SBT) Initiative (SBTi), “SBTs provide a clearly defined pathway for companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, helping prevent the worst impacts of climate change and future-proof business […]

Economics of EDA on AWS: License Cost Optimization

Introduction Electronic Design Automation (EDA) workloads have traditionally run on-premises on a combination of latest and older generation compute servers. The performance penalty of running Electronic Design Automation (EDA) on older generation hardware is often neglected in discussions and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) models. With EDA license costs greatly exceeding IT spend in silicon […]
