Everyone is aware of the adage, “time is money”. No industry is more aware of this than the semiconductor industry in which time to market delays can cost billions of dollars. To do anything in this business, one must do 3 things: 1) design chips, 2) transfer design shapes to a photolithography mask, and 3) fabricate designs. In this talk, we will explore the transfer of design shapes to masks using OPC. OPC is an embarrassingly parallel high performance computing workload that is typically run on Linux clusters. Historically, semiconductor manufacturers have finite on-prem compute resources. To address compute limitations, we discuss methods to enable OPC hybrid cloud bursting using managed Kubernetes services. We present scaling OPC workloads from 1,000 pods to 10,000+ pods using managed Kubernetes services. Also, we explore benefits of using managed Kubernetes services in terms of performance, set-up, and the use of autoscalers to control costs at the job level.
