SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- The next generation of semiconductor design infrastructure is here. This week at the Design Automation Conference (DAC), Silicon Cloud International (SCI), providers of secure and private cloud computing infrastructure and ecosystem, will be on hand to demonstrate what the cloud can do for semiconductor design. With tools for FPGA designers and the burgeoning silicon photonics market respectively, design ecosystem partners Plunify and Optic2Connect will be demonstrating how their offerings operate with the SCI platform and highlighting the advantages that the cloud can bring.
SCI establishes secure cloud computing centers for scientific and engineering applications across the world. As an initial application, SCI's cloud is providing turn-key design-to-manufacturing semiconductor design workflows for universities and research institutions. SCI's private cloud and thin client architecture establishes a novel security model for semiconductor ecosystem providers and users.
"Conventional design platforms are resource and capital intensive -- putting them out of the reach of many universities," noted Mojy Chian, CEO for SCI. "By creating a solution that provides a secure, scalable and cost-effective platform for chip design, we are creating a paradigm shift -- and changing the way IC design is done."
Plunify for FPGA Design
Timing closure is the biggest challenge that FPGA designers face. Plunify's InTime is a new software tool that uses data analytics and machine learning to solve timing, area and power issues. As a plugin to major FPGA tools, InTime generates optimized strategies to solve design problems and has been proven to produce better quality results than existing solutions. InTime also learns from every build to improve results over time, while utilizing unused compute resources to efficiently run builds.
Plunify's patented technology enables FPGA designers to solve timing problems and dramatically accelerate design workflows -- saving time and money in the process. Running on the SCI platform, Plunify will demonstrate how InTime solves FPGA timing problems and recommends strategies for timing, area or power performance targets.
Optic2Connect for Optical Modulator Solutions
Addressing the need to simplify modulator design for the burgeoning silicon photonics market, Optic2Connect's software solutions are designed to significantly shorten product time-to-market and reduce development costs of silicon modulators. As designs become more complex, simulation tools need to scale with regard to fidelity and accuracy. Optic2Connect provides an end-to-end solution to address exacting demands for modulator design. This ensures acceleration in prototype manufacturing and lowering of production costs. Additionally, with Optic2Connect's modeling and simulation solutions running on either cloud / standalone or SCI ecosystems, the traditional roadblocks of insufficient servers / licenses, especially during periods of peak demand, are circumvented.

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...
