Yes, graduate students can now build protoypes of their "next great idea" for IoF, maybe join up with SRC to perfect the details and grow a startup, either traditionally or with Kickstarter.

@elctrnx_lyf: This is probably great idea for tech geeks seeking out new things to design. I hope the things they put up on the cloud, if somebody makes an important discovery while working on the data available, they don't face legal trouble because a number of companies will be facilitating sensitive data, and they?ll be looking out to buy patents from anybody making discoveries using that data.

The Cloud Education

The Cloud based education system seems to be a great idea, as researchers and doctorial student alike will have access to that kind of innovative information (market sector principles of technology, and that too facilitated to them by a cloud system) without dropping too much sweat. This will probably create the grass root levels of IOT developing among researchers and students.

@Kinnar: Okay, thanks for the information!! Yeah, I see the reason why the EDA companies would sponsor the tools for the Universities/Colleges at a much subsidized price, which is a lot lower as compared to the actual commercial price of the EDA softwares. It is a win-win situation for both. I am not surprised to see that the same would not yet get open up to institutes other than the universities & educational institutes...after all the EDA companies would need to remain in business... :)

Yes and yes :)

The program is restricted to universities--professors and students-- and yes it is in cooperation with the programs EDA companies already have going at universities.

Yes, it will not be made available outside university campus, generally university research scholars are the persons who need the tools, and they use it at its extent. These are the places from where the companies as well get inputs and acceptance for their products, so they make tools available to them, and cloud options is very much suitable for extending this facility this why the companies can track the usage of it and provide better service.

The advantage of cloud computing is felt every day in our lives. May be...some day, a common place of work would be created for all...

"runs all the popular EDA suites as a part of the programs EDA vendors already have with universities worldwide."

Is this initiative restricted only to the educational institutions, Universities which are part of the programs in colaboration with the EDA companies?

>will at least make others start exploring possibilities

Yes, the won't be making multi-core MPUs right awaym but maybe some mixed-signal chips for IoT

Electronics could reach beyond one can think, but due to the lack of availabilities of manufacturing integrated circuits it is getting restricted. The process is still so sophisticated and only available at few places. This initiative will at least make others start exploring possibilities for it.
