New Technical Report – Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Best Practices

With the introduction of FlexGroup volumes in ONTAP 9.1, I mention that one of the sweet spots for FlexGroup volume use cases is the EDA space, due to the high ingest and large number of files.

As such, I’ve written up a new TR for EDA best practices that can be found here:

What is EDA?

EDA stands for “Electronic Design Automation.” Essentially, it refers to software tools for designing electronic systems such as integrated circuits and printed circuit boards. The tools work together in a design flow that chip designers use to design and analyze entire semiconductor chips. Since a modern semiconductor chip can have billions of components, EDA tools are essential for their design. Here’s a list of EDA companies for reference:
