The History and Physics of Cliosoft’s Academic Program!

The History and Physics of Cliosoft’s Academic Program!

academic map

It was a very late evening, perhaps 11 PM, on a warm summer night in 2008. Someone sent an email to info@cliosoft.com with a very odd question – why were we not listed in Wikipedia? The sender was a scientist working for the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Of course, this piqued my curiosity and I replied back asking why that concerns… Read More


A tour of Cliosoft’s participation at DAC 2020 with Simon Rance

Simon Rance

As chip complexity grows, so does the need for a well-thought-out design data management strategy.  This is a hot area, and Cliosoft is in the middle of it.  When I was at eSilicon, we used Cliosoft technology to manage the design and layout of high-performance analog designs across widely separated design teams. The tool worked… Read More


How to Grow with Poise and Grace, a Tale of Scalability from ClioSoft

ClioSoft published a white paper recently entitled Best Practices are the Foundations of a Startup. The piece discusses the needs and challenges associated with building a scalable infrastructure to support growth.

Before I get into more details on ClioSoft’s white paper, I would offer my own experience on this topic – the need… Read More

I had the opportunity to attend a ClioSoft webinar recently on the topic of IP traceability. ClioSoft provides a broad range of tools for design data management and IP reuse. Entitled The New Trend in IP Traceability that IP Developers and Design Managers Rely On, the webinar was presented by Karim Khalfan, director of applications… Read More


Best Practices for IP Reuse

Best Practices for IP Reuse
by Bernard Murphy on 04-08-2020 at 6:00 am

Reuse

As someone who was heavily involved with rules for IP reuse for many years, I have a major sense of déja vu in writing again on the topic. But we (in SpyGlass) were primarily invested in atomic-level checks in RTL and gate-level designs. There’s a higher level of best practices in process we didn’t attempt to cover. ClioSoft just released… Read More


WEBINAR REPLAY: AWS (Amazon) and ClioSoft Describe Best Cloud Practices

WEBINAR REPLAY: AWS (Amazon) and ClioSoft Describe Best Cloud Practices
by Randy Smith on 11-20-2019 at 10:00 am

ClioSoft has been working with the leading cloud computing providers running experiments on various EDA cloud architectures for a while now. One example of that was a project with Google I previously wrote a blog about, For EDA Users: The Cloud Should Not Be Just a Compute Farm. Since then, ClioSoft has also teamed up with Amazon … Read More

WEBINAR REPLAY: ClioSoft Facilitates Design Reuse with Cadence® Virtuoso®
by Daniel Nenni on 10-23-2019 at 10:00 am

In September, ClioSoft gave a SemiWiki webinar titled, Reusing Your IPs & PDKs Successfully With Cadence® Virtuoso®. I was happy to be the moderator of this webinar, having had the chance to work with ClioSoft’s team over many years. The webinar was informative while also being very time efficient. I think it is important for… Read More

WEBINAR: Reusing Your IPs & PDKs Successfully With Cadence® Virtuoso®
by Randy Smith on 09-13-2019 at 10:00 am

I recently wrote about a ClioSoft® study with Google on using cloud platforms for EDA design and the importance of using persistent storage when doing that. ClioSoft will again be sharing important information on design productivity in the upcoming webinar, Reusing Your IPs & PDKs Successfully With Cadence® Virtuoso®. … Read More


For EDA Users: The Cloud Should Not Be Just a Compute Farm

For EDA Users: The Cloud Should Not Be Just a Compute Farm
by Randy Smith on 09-09-2019 at 10:00 am

When EDA users first started considering using cloud services from Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and others, their initial focus was getting access for specific design functions, such as long logic or circuit simulation runs or long DRC runs, not necessarily for their entire design flow. If you choose to use the cloud this way, you… Read More


IP Provider Vidatronic Embraces the ClioSoft Design Management Platform

IP Provider Vidatronic Embraces the ClioSoft Design Management Platform
by Randy Smith on 07-31-2019 at 6:00 am

Having worked at several semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) companies, I know how important it is to have a strong design data management platform for tracking the development and distribution of SIP products. Everyone doing semiconductor design should care about design data management. But for an IP company, it is … Read More
