SaaS Solutions for Semiconductor Design
For more than a dozen years, Cadence has deployed an advanced collaboration infrastructure (“VCAD”) to help you leverage the breadth of Cadence expertise and decrease risk on your production designs. Now this secure remote access capability is combined with the optimal software-as-a-service (SaaS) infrastructure for the semiconductor design industry. This results in proven production design environments that provide business and engineering efficiencies by:
- Delivering proven methodologies and use models along with leading EDA technologies
- Leveraging a highly reliable and secure infrastructure
- Reducing TCO for design environments and associated IT infrastructure
- Establishing an environment for intra- and inter-company collaboration
In addition, Cadence Hosted Design Solutions are available across many design disciplines, including:
- Custom IC design
- Logic design
- Physical implementation
- Advanced low-power design
- Block-level functional verification
- Chip-level functional verification
Adapting the SaaS Model to the Unique Needs of Semiconductor Design
Cadence Hosted Design Solutions apply the same concepts captured in the traditional SaaS application stack, and adapt them to the demanding data and processing requirements of leading-edge semiconductor design. As with software companies like Oracle and SAP, who have adapted the SaaS model for their offerings, leveraging this model for semiconductor design provides Cadence with a new method to enable you to achieve breakthroughs in efficiency, visibility, and capability.
Leveraging the Breadth of Cadence Expertise
Cadence Hosted Design Solutions not only provides the infrastructure but also a fully integrated and proven environment that leverages knowledge from across the Cadence engineering, services, and applications teams. The result is a robust and streamlined flow enabling you to take advantage of all the latest design techniques and advanced product capabilities.
If your design has unique requirements, or should a problem arise, the collaborative aspect of the infrastructure makes it easy for Cadence experts, regardless of location, to work together with your team.
Scalability, Stability, and Security
Cadence Hosted Design Solutions can easily scale to support your team as it grows and changes. A state-of-the-art IT and security infrastructure further ensures that the environment is always available, backed up, and protected from unauthorized access.
