Metrics Technologies has introduced itself as a provider of pay-by-minute Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud-based verification solutions. Metrics will enable semiconductor and systems companies to instantly accommodate peak simulation demand, optimise budgets, and accelerate verification closure.
In other news today, Metrics also announced that its flagship product, the Metrics Cloud Simulator and Verification Manager, was commercially released, after nearly three calendar years and +30 person years of development, and successful deployment at multiple companies.
Metrics is delivering the benefits of a true cloud solution to SoC design and verification, including on-demand deployment, high reliability, and team collaboration. The company is also removing the traditional high overhead for configuring and maintaining the hardware and software needed for a robust verification environment. At the same time, it is addressing the historical obstacles to broad cloud adoption, such as security concerns and workflow integration.
“Cloud technology and a Software as a Service business model have already been a disruptive force in many industries. Just as the EDA software industry transitioned from perpetual licenses to term licenses over two decades ago, it is inevitable that EDA will ultimately embrace SaaS via cloud solutions,” said Jim Hogan, Metrics Board Chairman.
“I’ve joined the Metrics board of directors because they have the vision and the technology basis to pioneer this shift.”
“We founded Metrics to bring the compelling advantages of a secure, collaborative, cloud-based workflow to SoC design and verification teams,” said Doug Letcher, President and CEO of Metrics. “Our solutions are built to plug-and-play into existing workflows - to enable companies to achieve optimal utilisation of software licenses, compute hardware, and engineering staff time.”
