Ansys has joined the Intel Foundry Services (IFS) Cloud Alliance. IFS is a fully vertical, standalone foundry business announced by Intel in 2021. Intel is partnering with cloud service providers and electronic design automation suppliers to enable a secure design environment for customers on the cloud, the company reports. Ansys tools, including Ansys RedHawk-SC, Ansys HFSS, Ansys Totem, Ansys PathFinder, Ansys VeloceRF and Ansys RaptorX, are available as part of this interoperable, cloud-enabled semiconductor design flow.

RedHawk-SC is a next-generation system-on-chip (SoC) power noise signoff platform that is built on Ansys SeaScape, the a custom-designed, big data architecture for electronic system design and simulation. Its underlying scalable elastic compute architecture uses the cloud, enabling customers to load large designs within seconds. 

“We are excited to have Ansys as an alliance partner and look forward to continued collaboration with Ansys to enable efficient reliability and verification flows on the cloud,” says Rahul Goyal, vice president and general manager of Intel Product and Design Ecosystem Enablement.

The Cloud Alliance advances semiconductor design by ensuring that chip designers have an interoperable EDA workflow easily accessible via the cloud. The workflow allows customers to focus on creating product ideas, rather than operational tasks.

“Our comprehensive suite of interoperable multiphysics analysis solutions are a key part of IFS first design flow supported on the cloud,” says John Lee, vice president and general manager of the semiconductor, electronics, and optics business unit at Ansys. “IFS chose Ansys as their multiphysics partner, as the Ansys platform helps enable customers to work on delivering unique new capabilities while benefiting from Ansys’ gold-standard simulation accuracy within popular EDA design flows.”

RedHawk-SC and other Ansys multiphysics solutions work with other Ansys tools, EDA implementation flows, and customers’ internally developed solutions.
