As the 50th Design Automation Conference opens, attendees rushing through the doors early Monday may have their heads in a Cloud. Cloud computing that is, and heading straight toward Booth #846.
That’s because OneSpin Solutions in Booth #846 figured out the gnarly security problem that’s prevented more widespread adoption of the Cloud in EDA and the semiconductor industry. The need for proprietary design code to leave the office has been eliminated.
Briefly, OneSpin’s technology analyzes the design code locally and only transmits an encrypted mathematical abstraction of the verification problem with all the descriptive details stripped away. After processing, results are returned to the local machine and the descriptive details are reapplied. No data is retained in the Cloud. Functionality is provided by OneSpin’s formal verification tools, 360 DV-Inspect and 360 DV-Verify, and is meant to be simple to use and easy to adopt in a flow.
Let’s not focus too heavily on the OneSpin Cloud Strategy, though it’s an important breakthrough. Instead, I invite you to stop by its DAC Booth #846 to see for yourself and, if you’re interested, sign up to become a Beta user. Approved project teams will be able to access cloud servers at no charge, less a minimal charge to OneSpin Cloud System host Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, until August 30.
