Monitoring and Data Analytics

From the wafer substrate to the end product

SiliconDash provides users with real-time visibility and insight into high-volume data streams from geographically dispersed manufacturing and test operations.

The automatically generated reporting infrastructures, traffic light dashboards, and custom reports give aggregated information and metrics at a glance and empower individuals to quickly make informed decisions for optimizing corporate operational performance. In addition, these metrics serve as the starting point for engineering analysis - quickly drilling down into details, performing root cause analysis, what-if-scenarios, modeling and tying anomalies to specific transactions in manufacturing and test activities.

Automatically generated analytic results, insights and alerts

On live data feeds and historical data

The SiliconDash operational intelligence engines continuously monitor and analyze high-velocity, high-volume content rich data streams.  Organizations gain the ability to instantly make decisions on incoming data and act on analytic insights, through manual or automated methods.

Central compute engines are automatically triggered by incoming data to execute queries along with a large set of advanced detection, classification and correlation algorithms against streaming data feeds and manufacturing event data. As a result, SiliconDash delivers real-time analytic results that can be made available to the end-user in the form of stored meta data, reports, textual conclusions, alert signals, chart images, and emails.

SiliconDash contains a variety of continuously growing built-in algorithms. These algorithms, and scripts can also be designed, developed, customized, and inserted into the production data flow by individual users. These then triggered by incoming test and manufacturing data.

Loading data streams from anywhere

Simultaneous coverage of multiple sites

SiliconDash uses modern data communication channels to ensure reliable and secure data transfer to-and-from multiple worldwide manufacturing and test sites.

Worldwide user access and collaboration

Gather deep insight wherever you are, at the office or on the road.

SiliconDash simultaneously loads incoming data and serves up to hundreds of users through secure web infrastructures enabling extremely fast response times and virtually instant data visualizations and content delivery.

SiliconDash provides a wide range of collaborative features that enable scattered, worldwide organizations to effectively collaborate together and share data, working methods and results.

Security, availability and performance

ISO 27001 certified

To ensure premium access to the major business areas in the U.S, Asia and Europe, each of our partner data centers meet the highest specifications for performance, availability and security.

Synopsys partners with top tier data centers across the globe that use the latest technologies to guarantee high performance and availability.

Reliability and availability are key. SiliconDash has built in multiple levels of redundancy to ensure consistently high performance, including many redundant components and multiple active paths for cooling and power distribution. If any one of the data centers suffers power loss, emergency backup generators are triggered to maintain continuity of service.

The data centers, your data, and SiliconDash are secure. When it comes to sensitive business data, we don’t take any chances. Fully compliant with the latest security policies and audit guidelines, we take a meticulous approach ensuring that your private data stays private and is protected at all times.

Software and Platforms as a service

SiliconDash is centrally hosted and delivered as a combination of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). The application can be securely accessed by an unlimited amount of authorized users using a thin client via a web browser. This allows customers to run scalable and powerful platforms without the costs of building and maintaining the complex infrastructures typically associated with data analytics across world-wide operations.

SiliconDash can be delivered in two ways: as a cloud service that is centrally hosted within a 3rd party data center, where Synopsys takes care of hardware and software deployment, configuration, monitoring, maintenance, data integration, and data management operations, - or in private data centers and jointly managed by internal IT departments and Synopsys.
