- Easy access to cloud-ready Cadence software for customer-managed cloud environments
- High-reliability license server maintains uptime
- Can be combined with other Cadence Cloud offerings
Cloud-ready tools include the Cadence software that has been qualified to run as expected on a compute cluster provisioned on the public cloud. The initial qualification process has focused on products that natively benefit from the massive scalability of the cloud. Current Cadence products that are cloud ready include tools for circuit simulation, power and EM analysis, logic simulation, formal verification, physical verification, timing signoff, extraction, power integrity, and library characterization. Additional tools will become available based on customer need.
The Cloud Passport is suited for companies who have the means and expertise to manage their own cloud infrastructure internally. Additionally, the Cloud Passport can be combined with any other Cadence Cloud offering, so customers can subscribe both to the Cloud Passport model to run cloud-ready tools within their own public cloud environment and leverage the Cadence-managed Cloud-Hosted Design Solution or Palladium® Cloud solutions for specific peak or project needs.
Cloud Passport Partners
Moving to the cloud often requires new knowledge and capabilities that not every company possesses. The Cadence Cloud Passport Partner Program gives customers an easier path to the cloud by connecting them with knowledgeable service providers who are authorized to deploy Cadence tools in cloud environments.
We successfully ran more than 500 million instances flat using the fully distributed Cadence Tempus Timing Signoff Solution on the CloudBurst platform via AWS to complete the tapeout of our latest TSMC 7nm networking chip. This would have been impossible to achieve in the required timeframe if we hadn’t deployed...
