Cadence Design Systems, Inc. has introduced a new Cadence OnCloud system as a service and e-commerce platform powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for companies adopting a “cloud-first” approach for design and analysis solutions that can be accessed anywhere from any device.

The new e-commerce platform offers instant access to purchase and deploy products in minutes. Cadence OnCloud is targeted for those with limited infrastructure or resources and offers support options, including self-help and a range of SaaS delivery options.

The platform allows users to subscribe to their preferred consumption-based usage models depending on design needs and project duration. Cadence OnCloud initially provides the system design and analysis packages below:

  • Mainstream PCB Design: Provides PCB design software that is easy to use from start to finish with Cadence OrCAD PCB design technologies.
  • Advanced PCB Design: Provides schematic design and layout capabilities with the in-design analysis verification tools in Cadence Allegro technologies.
  • Multiphysics Analysis: Provides multiphysics computational software for electromagnetics, thermal, power and signal integrity, using the Cadence Clarity, Sigrity and Celsius solvers.
  • Mainstream and Advanced CFD: Provides computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workflows—from meshing all types of flow domains to solving multiphysics flow problems to advanced flow analysis post-processing—using Cadence Fidelity CFD Software.

Cadence OnCloud also eliminates on-premises compute and server resources that require high maintenance and operational overhead and consume high levels of power. With Cadence OnCloud, users can scale and adjust their resources for businesses and design project workloads. Together with AWS, Cadence extends its cloud leadership and offers the scalability needed for tens of thousands of users, who may not traditionally have access to advanced technologies.

“AWS has worked closely with Cadence during the development of the Cadence OnCloud SaaS and e-commerce platform, which provides our mutual customers near-instant access to advanced system analysis and design solutions with the flexibility, performance and accessibility of AWS Cloud,” says Ian Colle, GM HPC and Batch Computing, AWS. 

In addition, Cadence OnCloud allows users an online shopping experience that many have come to expect, with instant credit card and ACH purchasing and packages in app form tailored to specific user types, skills and needs. It is built on security with multiple layers of defense from the infrastructure level to the user level.

In support of Cadence’s sustainability goals, Cadence OnCloud contributes to lowering the overall carbon footprint by enabling the transition of development tools from enterprise data centers to carbon-optimized cloud data centers for which research has shown improved sustainability.
