CAD-as-a-Service: An Overview
CAD-as-a-Service offers complementary solutions to enhance the existing CAD team’s tools and workflows or serve as the foundation for a new team. The service provider takes responsibility for maintaining, supporting and enhancing the solutions over time.
A CAD flow is software that automates and streamlines the design process with minimal user input. Typically, CAD flows are developed and customized in-house by a CAD team and not sold by EDA companies.
BCI simplifies the development and deployment of complex CAD solutions, allowing for faster and more cost-effective silicon design. With decades of experience, we have pioneered the development and deployment of CAD solutions as a CAD-as-a-Service model, providing intuitive and customizable solutions to our customers.
BCI has identified essential features for best-in-class CAD flows and created a novel framework, Dagogo©, to incorporate them. The company uses Dagogo to develop pre-build CAD flows for design verification, emulation, synthesis, and RTL2GDS. These pre-build flows are available to customers as turnkey solutions with minimal setup, and BCI can quickly customize these flows to meet customers’ unique requirements.
By using BCI as a CAD-as-a-Service provider, customers can reduce the cost and effort associated with owning and maintaining CAD flows while gaining access to the capabilities of our proprietary Dagogo framework. Our model of delivering CAD solutions can improve customers’ design processes and enhance their competitiveness.
BCI can quickly create complex CAD workflows throughout the chip design cycle by customizing pre-built CAD flows. Pre-built CAD flows are modular and require minimal EDA tool commands and configuration setup. The pre-built CAD flows are designed for easy extension to be compatible with vendor tools, methodologies, and technologies.
BCI’s engineers have extensive experience developing and deploying new flows and methodologies across various technologies on a large scale. BCI team can help onboard new and existing designs with customized flows and the appropriate tools and methodologies. Additionally, we provide personalized training and support to help our customers get started and effectively utilize our workflows.LEARN MORE
