Workers at Microsoft headquarters are back in the office after the US Thanksgiving holiday. With just a few weeks to go until the end of the year, Microsoft is wasting no time issuing small but important announcements about Azure, rounding out a week rich in channel collaboration news.

Microsoft’s director of Semiconductor and EDA, Richard Paw, shared details about Voltus on Azure. With the growth of AI and hyperscale designs, Voltus is an IC Power Integrity Signoff Solution from Cadence Design Systems used to verify the reliability of power networks on chip. Paw wrote:

The elasticity of Voltus architecture enables the tool to run faster with a higher number of CPUs and since the CPUs are used for a smaller amount of time, the result is that the total cost drops to an optimal point…This is a win-win situation where you can improve your performance and reduce your costs.
