Singapore (PRWEB) January 25, 2014
Silicon Cloud International (SCI), a provider of secure and private cloud-based computing infrastructure, announced its plans today for delivering the next generation of semiconductor design workflows and platforms for universities and research institutions.
SCI provides an end to end semiconductor design infrastructure that is maintenance-free and provisioned with the latest semiconductor process technologies, production grade workflows, semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP), and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software. SCI’s common and consistent infrastructure enables global semiconductor development and research collaboration, improves time to market, and provides secure access to leading edge EDA tools, process libraries and IP cores. SCI is working with several countries around the world to establish a national semiconductor design and computing infrastructure. “Security has long been a major obstacle for the deployment and adoption of IC design in the cloud,” said Mojy Chian, CEO and co-founder of Silicon Cloud International. “Using defense-grade security, SCI creates a trusted environment that enables universities and research institutions to access leading edge manufacturing technologies (PDK), state of the art design tools and the latest cloud computing technologies.”
According to Ulf Schneider, President of the Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association (SSIA), “SCI represents the first major disruptive technology application of cloud computing for the semiconductor industry.”
SCI is partnering with semiconductor ecosystem providers including EDA, foundry and IP companies as well as leading universities to deploy its cloud-based workflows and infrastructure. These partnerships will be announced shortly.
