SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced on Thursday that NXP Semiconductors N.V. has selected AWS as its preferred cloud provider and is migrating the vast majority of its electronic design automation (EDA) workloads from NXP data centers to AWS.

The Netherlands-based company uses AWS's proven global infrastructure and capabilities in high performance computing (HPC), storage, analytics, and machine learning to enhance collaboration and EDA throughput across dozens of its worldwide design centers, the announcement said.

Running on AWS, NXP aims to achieve long-term process improvements that transform how semiconductors are designed and tested.

"We believe cloud-based EDA is critical to accelerating semiconductor innovation and getting new designs to market faster to power an increasingly digital world where more and more devices and infrastructure are connected," said Olli Hyyppa, chief information officer and senior vice president at NXP Semiconductors.

"We're excited to expand our relationship with AWS to power the next generation of EDA workloads in the cloud. This will give precious time back to our design engineers to focus on innovation and lead the transformation of the semiconductor industry," he added. Enditem
