Cloud based education is a in need in developing countries and sure in developed countries it has already reached mature model. Abu Dhabi is coming up as a new node for IT hub. THe Government is putting in all efforts to get the infrastructure ready. But there are hardly any hardware or software engineers there, may be this will initiate a new era there.

Nice initiative! Let us know @synflow if you'd like to include support for languages other than VHDL/Verilog :-)

Should this be provided for interested individuals who would like to learn and work in these areas.

This step is a very nice initiative. In-fact semiconductor manufacturing is only a business of few giant corporate. If the spread of that is not made available to larger number of people or companies then this will be lead to a dead lock in worst conditions like natural calamities or world war. In developed countries the general scenario is of centralization of techniques/technologies, only china can make it available to larger number of instances. The way they have did it for the mobile phones. In US you can find only Apple and Asus, where as in china you will be able to find so many manufacturers.

One thing I forgot to mentioin, is that SRC is now letting smaller companies sigh-up for just a part of there efforts-for instance, a startup can sign-up just for IoT support or its low-power efforts. This should be a real boon to companies that don't have the resources to become a regular member of SRC.

Yes, we enjoy one of the world's highest standards of living, but if the rest of the world could enjoy the fruits of electronic design, it would be all the better for all of us.

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.

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

Advantage cloud

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?
