NXP Semiconductors chooses Amazon Web Services as its cloud partner

NXP Semiconductors N.V. has reportedly chosen Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its preferred cloud provider. As part of this move, the specialized semiconductor manufacturer is shifting the majority of its EDA (electronic design automation) workloads from the company’s data centers to AWS.

Operating on the leading cloud platform on the world extends the efficiency and competitive advantage of NXP in the design, as well as verification of advanced semiconductors customized to the needs of industrial Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, communications infrastructure, and mobile businesses.

NXP uses the global infrastructure as well as the abilities of AWS in storage, HPC (high performance computing), machine learning, and analytics to improve EDA throughput and collaboration across dozens of design centers worldwide.  In addition, it reduces costs with flexible scaling of compute resources and mitigates scheduling risks for design projects. NXP engineers can now gain more time to focus on innovation instead of compute resource management, owing to the virtually unlimited scale of AWS.

Operating on AWS, the Netherlands-based company intends to attain long-term process enhancements that transform the design and testing methods of semiconductors. Before NXP can produce new chips, its designs have to go through extensive testing as well as authentication through the EDA process to assure they are functionally secure, highly performant, and high quality.

The complex EDA workflows of NXP comprise performance simulation, front-end design, and verification, along with backend workflows that comprise design rule checks, power and timing analysis, and other applications to prepare a chip for production.

Historically, semiconductor firms operate these highly iterative workflows from data centers that are on-premise with fixed compute capacity. But by powering NXP’s EDA with AWS, the company can gain the agility as well as the scale required to further several projects simultaneously on demand, irrespective of the complexity, and parallelly operate dozens of performance simulations to expedite the result time.
