Optimizing electronic design automation on AWS
This whitepaper presents an overview of the EDA workflow, recommendations for moving EDA tools to AWS, and the specific AWS architectural components to optimize EDA workloads on AWS.
Best practices for deploying ClioSoft SOS7 on AWS
This paper outlines the advantages of and best practices for deploying the ClioSoft SOS design data management software on the AWS Cloud platform.
Using Ellexus Breeze for EDA workload migration to AWS
This whitepaper outlines the best practices for migrating Electronic Design Automation (EDA) workloads to AWS using the I/O profiling and dependency analysis tool suite Breeze from Ellexus. Profiling the EDA tool on premises and in the cloud ensures that the AWS configuration is right sized for the application and that costs are optimized.

Videos & webinars
How do you innovate and enable new products in an increasingly fast paced industry? Henk Coenen from NXP dives into NXP's transformation and how innovation can be enabled by embracing failure and taking the right approach to organization change.
In this session, learn how AWS helps achieve the maximum possible performance and throughput for design and verification workloads and enhances electronic product manufacturing through advanced analytics and machine learning. See optimization techniques and architectures for accelerating batch and interactive workloads. Learn to extend and migrate on-premises EDA workloads with AWS and to use a combination of instances to minimize costs.
In this session, we discuss deployment tools and methods, and use cases, for running the entire EDA workflow on AWS. Using customer examples, we show how AWS can improve performance, meet tape-out windows, and effortlessly scale out to meet unforeseen demand.
