EDA Challenges

As semiconductor companies continue to evolve with the development of new technology, Moore’s law (i.e., transistor count doubling every two years) continues to hold true. The trend is forcing the software and systems used to design these semiconductors to expand their use of memory in alignment with the increased gate count.

HyperCloud HCDIMM Advantage

By supporting multi-core processors with large capacity high speed memory, HyperCloud HCDIMM gives EDA professionals flexibility to run hardware and EDA software with increased server utilization thereby reducing design time and increasing design productivity. In summary HyperCloud memory has shown it can enable:

  • 15% improvement in an EDA job runtime
  • 288GB RAM in a dual-processor server running at 1333 MT/s
  • Increased design productivity
  • Reduced EDA software expenditures.
