Shared EDA: EDA Tools, Knowledge and IP Made Available for Start-Ups and SMEs – Presented by Christiaan van der Sluijs, Shared EDA, at the 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference, on September 26, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
The needs of today’s electronic design companies are demanding. EDA tools and Intellectual Property (IP) libraries are critical enablers for developing and maintaining successful products and services.
Shared EDA is an organization dedicated to strengthen the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) ecosystem. The organization licenses EDA tools and coordinates relevant trainings, workshops, transfer of knowledge and sharing of semiconductor IP. By sharing Licenses and IP, the electronic design companies are enabled to use EDA tools and IP as if they were a large enterprise, including the benefits (e.g. re-mix, price).
Shared EDA offers EDA tools vendors a converging business model that caters to the demanding needs of today’s electronic design companies. Over the past 5 years, Shared EDA changed the game of licensing EDA tools.
