POLYTEDA CLOUD has developed an innovative cloud-ready physical verification workflow for semiconductor foundries - PVCLOUD. It consists of PV toolset PowerDRC/LVS and Nefelus Cloud Management System (CMS) specially adapted for EDA needs and tools specifics. It implies for SaaS/Pay-per-use business model.
PowerDRC/LVS is an efficient and innovative cloud-ready tool for physical verification of integrated circuits (ICs) covering principal DRC and LVS tasks both in single- and multi-CPU modes. The tool has been certified for process nodes up to 40nm by UMC fab. It was many times tested and evaluated against main competitive tool showing steady performance benefit, which grows with increasing of layout design size and complexity.
The CMS is an IT software platform built on existing cloud infrastructure technologies to make the IC design process distributed and global for fabs customers. It provides all the required infrastructure under-the-hood to run PV toolset securely and with most possible efficiency on available hardware configuration, 24/7.
