Introducing Synopsys Cloud

Cloud native EDA tools and pre-optimized hardware platforms. Experience unlimited EDA licenses with true pay-per-use on an hourly or per-minute basis.

Synopsys ZeBu Cloud has allowed many design verification teams to take advantage of the latest Synopsys ZeBu emulation systems without the need to create their own emulation infrastructure including emulation systems and compute. Synopsys hosts the ZeBu servers as well as all the computation infrastructure needed to compile customer source codes for Synopsys ZeBu.

Synopsys Cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has for the past year, provided our design community access to a virtually unlimited amount of compute as well as licenses through its FlexEDA model. Many customers have derived huge benefits in getting quicker Time-to-Result (TTR), better Quality-of-Result (QoR), all at a much lower Cost-of-Result (CoR).

Synopsys announced the next step in its drive to help Synopsys ZeBu customers achieve the trifecta of TTR, QoR and CoR. Synopsys ZeBu Cloud users can now take advantage of Synopsys Cloud’s elasticity to tremendously accelerate the Synopsys ZeBu compilation step. 

Synopsys ZeBu Compilation Using Synopsys Cloud

The Synopsys ZeBu Cloud SaaS Flow is a seamless connection between ZeBu Cloud’s ZeBu servers and Synopsys Cloud’s compute infrastructure. Source code is easily synched from ZeBu Cloud to Synopsys Cloud to be compiled, and the resulting ZeBu database are sync’ed back to Synopsys ZeBu Cloud servers. Customers can set up in an on-demand basis as many compute CPUs to parallelize the compilation workloads as they would like to accelerate this compilation step.

Synopsys, EDA, and the Cloud

Synopsys is the industry’s largest provider of electronic design automation (EDA) technology used in the design and verification of semiconductor devices, or chips. With Synopsys Cloud, we’re taking EDA to new heights, combining the availability of advanced compute and storage infrastructure with unlimited access to EDA software licenses on-demand so you can focus on what you do best – designing chips, faster. Delivering cloud-native EDA tools and pre-optimized hardware platforms, an extremely flexible business model, and a modern customer experience, Synopsys has reimagined the future of chip design on the cloud, without disrupting proven workflows.
