SCI's Cloud defines and constrains the end-to-end work flows that constitute the entire design-to-release-manufacturing workflow for all semiconductor process nodes provisioned in the cloud. Users assemble a heterogeneous suite of sub-workflows into a top-level signoff workflow for the project. The project work flow is the basis upon which the entire project is monitored and constrained for a qualified tapeout to the chosen silicon foundry. SCI works in partnership and concert with silicon foundries, IP providers and EDA ISVs to integrate workflow components and design databases into production signoff-grade cataloged workflow objects. The result is a secure and trusted WorkFlow-as-a-Service System (WFaaS).
