On premise and AWS Cloud enablement of Xilinx design capture and closure flows using Ansys Path FX


Simon Burke and Nitin Navale


As a major FGPA manufacturer, Xilinx Inc. has many challenges when using standard EDA tools in unique and non standard ways to deliver our products to our customers. Some of those challenges relate to scale out execution of compute intensive flows and cloud enablement of EDA tools and ecosystem is one option Xilinx is pursuing to address some of those challenges. This presentation will describe the use of Ansys’s Path FX tool both on premise and on Amazon AWS cloud environment to address some of those scale out limitations, specifically related to timing capture of delay information for our priority PnR tools.
