Predict the cost of Electronic Design Automation on AWS using simulation

Introduction Designing semiconductor requires High Performance Computing (HPC) to run Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. These workloads vary over time in both the amount and type of compute resources required. This makes it an ideal workload for the elasticity of the cloud. Customers choose optimal instance types to optimize each tools runtime. This reduces time-to-results […]

Getting Started with the Industrial Data Platform on AWS

Data is the key enabler to digital transformation and Industry 4.0. Manufacturers can use data to realize a single view of operations and derive operational insights. These insights can be used to improve production quality, make real-time prediction, and generate cost savings. Big Data analytics techniques can provide new capabilities related to measuring performance, maintenance, […]

Develop and deploy a customized workflow using Autonomous Driving Data Framework (ADDF) on AWS

Autonomous vehicles (AV) must be driven hundreds of millions of miles – and sometimes hundreds of billions of miles – to demonstrate their reliability in terms of fatalities and injuries. There is a need for alternative methods to supplement real-world testing including virtual testing and simulations, mathematic modeling and analysis, and scenario and behavior testing. In this […]

Industrial Personnel & Hazard Tracking with Amazon Location Service

Introduction Hot work is defined as any operation that could be an origin of ignition in an environment with flammable materials. According to the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB), hot work is one of the most common causes of worker death. It is also leading cause of industrial fires. A hot work […]

Integrating OPC UA machine events into the Amazon Virtual Andon solution

Introduction In modern IT, everybody speaks about microservices and integration between different systems. But when we look at the shop floor, the reality is that there are a lot of different protocols depending on the machine vendor. Even when the protocol is well understood, there is still a need to implement protocol-specific adapters to convert […]

Turning TR-069 bulk data into insights with AWS IoT Core and analytics services on AWS

Communications service providers (CSPs) often manage millions of customer premises equipment devices (CPEs) to provide services to their customers. These devices come in different types depending on the underlying communications technologies. Cable modems and xDSL modems, set-top boxes, and wireless routers are some examples of equipment types we see in customer environments. To manage those […]

Broadcom reduces workbench testing time and cost with AWS Lambda and AWS Glue

Introduction Workbench testing is a key step in the manufacturing of semiconductor chips. Testing consists of sending electrical signals to semiconductor devices and comparing output signals to expected values. It is essential to ensure that the produced devices work according to specifications. Workbench testing is also time consuming and costly, so we do not want […]

EDA Scale with FSx for NetApp ONTAP and IBM LSF

Introduction Silicon design teams are constantly under pressure to deliver more efficient products faster, while keeping costs low. Electronic Design Automation (EDA) infrastructure teams, which provide compute, storage, and other IT resources to silicon design teams, can play a critical role in shrinking the RTL-to-GDSII cycle. Historically, compute capacity for EDA workloads has come from […]
