Ansys Joins Intel Foundry Services Cloud Alliance
Ansys has announced that it has joined the Intel FoundryServices (IFS) Cloud Alliance. IFS is a fully vertical, standalone foundrybusiness announced by Intel last year. As part of the company's commitment tomeet the growing demand for foundry capacity, Intel is partnering with cloudservice providers and EDA suppliers to enable a secure design environment forcustomers on the cloud. Ansys tools, including Ansys RedHawk-SC, Ansys HFSS,Ansys Totem, Ansys® PathFinder, Ansys® VeloceRF™ and Ansys® RaptorX™, areavailable as part of this interoperable, cloud-enabled semiconductor designflow that will help enable current and future Intel customers to enhance theirproductivity.
RedHawk-SC is a next-generation system-on-chip (SoC) powernoise signoff platform that is built on Ansys SeaScape, the world's firstcustom-designed, big data architecture for electronic system design andsimulation. Its underlying highly-scalable elastic compute architecture takesfull advantage of the cloud, enabling customers to load the largest designs withinseconds and quickly explore thousands of scenarios.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of the IFS CloudAlliance to accelerate design on the cloud,” said Rahul Goyal, vice presidentand general manager of Intel Product and Design Ecosystem Enablement. “We areexcited to have Ansys as an alliance partner and look forward to continuedcollaboration with Ansys to enable efficient reliability and verification flowson the cloud.”
The Cloud Alliance advances semiconductor design by ensuringthat chip designers have a robust, interoperable EDA workflow that is easilyaccessible via the cloud. The workflow allows customers to focus on creatingunique product ideas, rather than operational tasks.
"Our comprehensive suite of interoperable multiphysicsanalysis solutions are a key part of IFS first design flow supported on thecloud," said John Lee, vice president and general manager of thesemiconductor, electronics, and optics business unit at Ansys. "IFS choseAnsys as their multiphysics partner, as the Ansys platform helps enablecustomers to work on delivering unique new capabilities while benefiting fromAnsys' gold-standard simulation accuracy within popular EDA design flows"
RedHawk-SC and other Ansys multiphysics solutions work withother Ansys tools, EDA implementation flows, and even customers' internallydeveloped solutions.
