The Ruby Cherry CAD Cloud (RC3) is a BYOL customizable cloud environment for microelectronics design, research and education.  RC3 is powered by AWS and hosted in customer-owned new or existing AWS accounts.  Remote graphical Linux sessions are managed and accessed via an inutitive and easy-to-use web interface.  RC3 can be fully integrated with the complete suite of Ruby Cherry EDA CAD services.    Your RC3 design or coursework environment can be up and running within days!

RC3 for microelectionics education allows students to gain authentic chip design experience with industry-standard Linux tools. The cloud environment enables universities to take advantage of deep academic discounts offerred by leading EDA tool vendors without the expense and specialized IT and CAD knowledge needed to support on premises computing.  The RC3 for Education environment was designed in consultation with university faculty, administrators, education researchers and students.  Students connect to remote graphical sessions on individual,  dedicated vCPUs.    Underlying compute resources are hibernated when desktops are idle, controlling costs while allowing students to pick up where they left off when they resume working. RC3 for Education offers low-cost, per-student scalability,  with on-demand local desktops configured to match lower compute demands of coursework. RC3 for Education is optimized for maximal performance at minimal cost.


RC3 HPC for microelectronics design and research can be deployed at any scale. Per user and per project budgets ensure that costs can be tracked and controlled. With on-demand compute power charged by the minute, you can run batch jobs in parallel (while you grab a coffee). Servers with up to 448 vCPUs and 1.2 TB of memory are also available on demand, along with GPU desktop sessions which can be launched as needed.
