Realize scaling and efficiency for the semi-manufacturing flow
The challenges of on-remise compute clusters for the post-tapeout IC flow are reaching a tipping point where adopting cloud solutions becomes more attractive. Implementing a cloud solution for electronic design automation (EDA) workloads is not without it's own challenges is a great solution to many of the problems of managing on-site compute clusters.
The Calibre semi-manufacturing flow is cloud-ready and scales well and is very cost-efficient. Siemens EDA also offers scheduler solutions for the cloud that are well-suited to large post-tapeout flow environments. The Siemens EDA Reference Environment is a pre-configured AWS ParallelCluster. The Calibre Kubernetes Operator launches Calibre jobs on Kubernetes clusters either on-cloud or on-premise.
Cloud computing is a powerful environment to crush Calibre semi-manufacturing runtimes through massive scaling, and Siemens EDA offers the tools to ease the transition to cloud-based post-tapeout flows.
