Design and Enablement on Cloud

Enabling partners to boost productivity and reduce costs in electronic design environments.


Since IBM created electronic design automation (EDA) in the 1950s, we have continued to advance our design infrastructure, including AI-infused EDA workflows. Today, IBM leverages this expertise to help EDA companies provide their offerings to clients as a service. By boosting EDA productivity in the cloud, our goal is to accelerate the time to market of leading-edge technologies. Clients can leverage IBM assets such as LSF and Spectrum Scale on hybrid cloud architectures, providing solutions for fabless companies and semiconductor foundries to run their workloads in the cloud. This approach reduces costs by optimizing EDA tool use and efficiently sharing IT resources both in the cloud and on premise. Additionally, our custom design partners can leverage IBM’s wealth of world-class research and expertise in system architecture, industry leading I/O and high-speed interconnects, processor and AI chip design, memory design, and the co-design of software and hardware to deliver state of the art solutions.
