AWS executive insights: Innovation and leading organizational change (16:03)

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.  

AWS re:Invent 2019: Leadership session: AWS for the Semiconductor industry MFG206-L (52:57)

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.

AWS re:Invent 2019: Electronic design automation: Scaling EDA workflows MFG304 (57:10)

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.
