How NXP is Moving Chip Design to AWS

In 2021, NXP selected AWS as its preferred cloud partner to migrate the vast majority of its silicon design workloads from NXP data centers to AWS. The migration is well underway, and a number of teams have already taped out projects in their AWS cloud environment. In this blog post, we share more about NXP’s […]

Driving High Performance and Efficient Physical Verification with Synopsys IC Validator on Amazon EC2 X2iezn Instances

Introduction Chip designs are increasing in complexity and size, which has resulted in additional transistors driving a need for greater processing power and memory. Greater silicon complexity makes physical verification with electronic design automation (EDA) applications more essential as any delays close to tape-out significantly impact production timelines. Silicon designers now require increased CPU and […]

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 […]
