Inphi speeds time-to-market using hyperefficient workflow management and performance optimization from Altair.

Altair has enabled Santa Clara, CA-based Inphi Corporation, a company involved in high-speed data movement interconnects, to realize cost savings and speed up design using Altair Accelerator, Altair reports.

“The performance optimization benefits provided by Altair are significant in the semiconductor space, specifically regarding license utilization and scheduling speed,” says Weikei Sun, associate vice president, engineering at Inphi. “Altair Accelerator’s scheduling speed is ten times that of the competitive solutions we have evaluated. Performant license-based scheduling enables our designers and engineers to explore more designs, faster, so we maintain an agile team and optimize utilization of expensive Electronic Design Automation (EDA) licenses.” 

Altair Accelerator is a high-throughput, high-efficiency job scheduler designed to meet the complex demands of the semiconductor industry, the company reports. The high-performance computing (HPC) requirements of EDA tools make Altair Accelerator a solution to achieve performance while optimizing customers’ EDA license and hardware expenditures, the company adds. It's reportedly an adaptable solution capable of managing compute infrastructures from small, dedicated server farms to complex, distributed HPC and cluster environments. 

“Inphi has a history of being first-to-market with new high-speed data movement interconnects technology,” says Mahalingam Srikanth, chief technology officer at Altair. “Altair is proud that our HPC technology remains an integral part of Inphi’s toolset as they lead from ahead in this highly competitive industry with faster time to market.”
