Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organising Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organising Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.

ET10.8.1 Exhibition Theatre Keynote: Design-in-the-Cloud: Myth and Reality

Start
11:00

The Cloud is promising orders of magnitude savings in time to market for integrated circuits, owing to CPU elasticity. However, practical limitations still mandate a selective approach to the product design flow and the business models have yet to be fully defined by vendors. The economic equation of designing in the cloud is challenging. In addition, design houses, IDMs and OEM customers have to decide to what extent they want to rely on Cloud service providers to maintain the confidentiality of their IP or SOC databases and honor export control requirements, in a context where such concerns are increasingly relevant in EDA vendor and IC supplier selection. This keynote will explore those topics based on ST’s own experience and trials.
