Managing the EDA Grid Workload

Posted by Andy Chan on Wed, May 06, 2015 @ 09:55 AM

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) is a segment of the software industry that helps engineers and scientists design innovative electronic and software products faster and more cost-effective. Given the innovative nature of the EDA environment, its performance demands tend to be resource intensive. Since its inception in the 1980s, the EDA community have been early adaptors of grid computing largely due to the performance limitations of a single computer (node) to run complex simulation, emulation, regression tests and software build jobs, all of the workflows that make up a large part of the design process.
