With the right software, GPUs can speed chip design.
A recent, broad-reaching IBM document explored the limitations engineering-oriented firms are facing, and what the role of the cloud can be as they address shortfalls.
This week an announcement from EDA giant Synopsys brought the concept of cloud computing for the industry one step closer to reality.
Cloud computing has been a consistent item on the programs of a number of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry events. To add to the discussion we explored the current role of clouds and looked to the future with five EDA executives to gauge their sense of cloud adoption and the reasons behind (or working against) it.
The EDA industry has produced a few solid use cases supporting the value of EDA software as a service, however sentiments about the role of clouds for the industry are mixed among top officials.
An outsource management team is the control point for the outsourcing of your infrastructure. Through this group, you maintain control over your infrastructure, and therefore can have full trust in your outsource partner (because you know exactly what you want, and you know how to measure if you are getting it).
It is critical that there is a healthy cloud ecosystem for vendors and those who use their services, which can only be propelled by trust. The longevity of the cloud computing paradigm as a form of outsourcing critical applications depends on this ecosystem but trust can be easily compromised.
GPUs delivering 20 teraflops expected by 2015.
EDN talks with David Stewart, founder and chief executive officer of CriticalBlue, about hardware/software co-design, multicore programming, and more.
Event-driven cloud computing is getting a lot of attention, but it’s the underlying architecture that counts.
