Silicon Cloud International, a provider of secure and private cloud computing infrastructure, announced that its second cloud centre has been operational in Singapore since March 2015.
This cloud centre is aimed at providing a state- of-the-art design enablement infrastructure and framework for Internet of Things (IoT) node designs.
IoT devices have a very large spectrum of use with significant local (country-specific) applications. The design of IoT nodes requires extensive use of analog, mixed signal, Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and multi-physics tools.
Silicon Cloud is planning to offer an end-to-end, seamless design platform for IoT node designs. In September 2014, Silicon Cloud launched a pilot programme for cloud based semiconductor design with 11 universities in Singapore, the UAE, and Malaysia.
The semiconductor platform simplicity, lower development cost, and wide range of applications foster an unprecedented era of semiconductor design opportunities for small to medium size companies and developing countries.
“With the Internet of Everything (IoE), spiralling demands for on-demand video, cloud services, LTE mobility, and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, as well as rising customer expectations for ubiquitous high-quality service connectivity, are putting tremendous pressure on network infrastructure and operations,” said David West, CTO, Systems Engineering & Architectures in Asia Pacific and Japan at Cisco.
