DescriptionWe introduce NEXA, a new cloud-native EDA platform for collaborative hardware logic design and debug. EDA tools and hardware design data co-exist as scalable, on-demand microservices. NEXA platform web applications leverage these microservices to provide new hardware design experiences like “session-based” design and debug. The platform “data sources” span across the hardware design flow: RTL design, compiled designs, RTL transforms, logic simulation data, physical design data in a concise binary form (DD), and hardware debug dumps. These platform capabilities uniquely complement the step-wise refinement implementation flow for hardware design. Use contexts for NEXA span across functional debug, logic-PD co-debug, and post-silicon hardware debug. Evaluation of the platform on industry-class high-performance microprocessor designs demonstrates the capabilities and efficiency of the platform.
