Cadence launched cloud for semi design at DAC 2018 and has since witnessed enthusiastic customer and partner responses. Discussions have shifted from the basics of security and IP, to cloud use models and deployment options. Cloud for semi design has evolved from being a “what” question to a “when” question and is now primarily a “how” question. This panel includes experts from companies who are already doing cloud-based semiconductor design. Some have abandoned on-premises data centers and are fully in the cloud. Others have opted for a peak-use-only strategy. Some have built and manage their own cloud environments while others have engaged with Cadence and third parties to accelerate the adoption process. The discussion will provide any semiconductor company with ideas about how best to use the cloud to achieve breakthrough results.
