Cloud-based chip design research and education
July 23, 2014
umbai, July 23 -- Engineers qualified for complex systems-on-chip (SoCs) are increasingly scarce, especially in developing countries, but that may come to an end soon as a result of a joint program announced today by the Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC) of Research Triangle, N.C., and startup Silicon Cloud International (SCI) of Singapore. By deploying electronic design automation (EDA) hardware and software in a private cloud accessible only to researchers and doctoral candidates at universities worldwide, SRC and SCI hope to grow a whole new crop of qualified SoC design engineers in developing countries worldwide. "All of our programs have a major chip design component. For instance, SRC has funding now from Abu Dhabi to help improve their university system to meet the unique needs of companies that they want to recruit to come over to Abu Dhabi," Larry Sumney, president and CEO of SRC, told EE Times. "But companies won't come unless there are engineers there to hire, and our new program with SCI will fulfill that roll with its educational agenda."
