EDA is Better in the Cloud. Here’s Why the Cloud is the Future of EDA

The semiconductor industry is finally on the cusp of joining the cloud revolution. The cloud has offered the promise of greatly expanded resources for years, but adoption has been slow due to lingering concerns. The biggest contributing factor for the concern over moving from on-premise EDA servers to cloud-based servers is, surprisingly, the rise of third-party IP. In the old days, if you were developing 100 percent of your own IP, and if you put that IP on a public cloud, and it somehow leaked out, well shame on you. That would certainly be bad for business. It might hurt your reputation a bit. But these days, with so much third-party IP being embedded into chips, if that third-party IP leaks out, that’s a lawsuit-fest in the making.
