Having entered the EU Horizon 2020 competition, PolytEDA Cloud became the first Ukrainian company to be granted funding through this route and the PVCloud solution was born as the result. This unique solution allows IC designers to access PV tools and powerful multi-CPU machines on an hourly pay-as-you-use basis 24/7/365, giving them control over costs but still allowing them to confirm that their designs are compliant with foundry rule sets.
For those users who would like to evaluate PVCloud right away, a version is available hosted in secure and efficient Amazon AWS cloud. The evaluation is free, and you are granted $25 worth tokens for the purpose on registration. As we move toward a world where cloud-based services become an increasing part of our daily lives, PolytEDA Cloud has taken the first steps toward introducing the PV SaaS/IaaS model to the EDA world and opening up an entirely new eco-system aimed at the small and medium enterprise sector, which has traditionally not been able to meet the high cost barriers of the traditional licence-based models.
