The Changing Face of IP Management

The Changing Face of IP Management
by Alex Tan on 11-05-2018 at 11:00 am


Aristotle once said “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. The notion of synergism echoes the importance of leveraging design IPs to the maximum extent with the rest of the system under development, in order to ensure a successful SoC design outcome in a shorter development cycle.

Data Management for SoCs – Not Optional Anymore

Data Management for SoCs – Not Optional Anymore
by Alex Tan on 09-24-2018 at 12:00 pm

Design Management (DM) encompasses business decisions, strategies and processes that enable product innovations. It is the foundation for both effective collaboration and gaining competitive advantage in the industry. This also applies in the high-tech space we are in, as having a sound underlying SoC data management for… Read More


Managing Your Ballooning Network Storage

Managing Your Ballooning Network Storage
by Alex Tan on 05-24-2018 at 12:00 pm

As companies scale by adding more engineers, there is a tendency to spread across multiple design sites as they strive to hire the best available talent. Multi-site development also impacts startups as they try to minimize their burn rate by having an offsite design center such as India, China or Vietnam.

Both the IoT and automotive… Read More


HCM Is More Than Data Management

HCM Is More Than Data Management
by Alex Tan on 04-12-2018 at 12:00 pm

While tracking Moore’s Law has become a more expensive and difficult endeavor in the HPC design, the mobile SOC design space is also increasingly heterogeneous and complex. Strict safety guidelines such as the ISO-26262 being imposed in the automotive applications further exacerbate the situation.

Looking closer into the … Read More


ClioSoft and SemiWiki Winning

ClioSoft and SemiWiki Winning
by Daniel Nenni on 03-05-2018 at 7:00 am

There is a bit of nostalgia here since ClioSoft was one of the first companies that we (SemiWiki) worked with 7 years ago. Back then it was hard for an emerging EDA company to get noticed by the mainstream media much less collaborate with them. Since then we have published 80 blogs with ClioSoft that have garnered more than 350,000 views.… Read More


IoT SoCs Demand Good Data Management and Design Collaboration

IoT SoCs Demand Good Data Management and Design Collaboration
by Mitch Heins on 09-20-2017 at 12:00 pm

Design data management has always been important. Board designers have known this for decades as they had to have ways to keep all their discreet components organized and understood. Sourcing components is not easy as it means hours of reading and reviewing specifications, finding reliable sourcing partners and understanding… Read More


ClioSoft’s designHUB Debut Well Received

ClioSoft’s designHUB Debut Well Received
by Mitch Heins on 08-03-2017 at 12:00 pm

It was only back in May of this year that ClioSoft first introduced designHUB, a revolutionary new product that is meant to enable better use of intellectual property (IP) within a company. I wrote a SemiWiki article at the time of the announcement and mentioned it again in a lead-up article to the 54[SUP]th[/SUP] Design Automation… Read More


The Official SemiWiki #54DAC Party Guide!

The Official SemiWiki #54DAC Party Guide!
by Daniel Nenni on 06-13-2017 at 12:00 pm

With the premier conference for semiconductor design enablement just around the corner I would like to take this time and space to talk about what is really happening at the #54DAC and that would be the parties! Granted the DAC parties are nothing like we used to have in the 1980s and the 1990s since we have matured as an industry but … Read More


Scaling Enterprise Potential with ClioSoft’s designHUB platform

Scaling Enterprise Potential with ClioSoft’s designHUB platform
by Mitch Heins on 05-02-2017 at 10:00 am

I’ve had the privilege over the years to be a part of a lot of great companies, teams and projects. Some of these efforts were quite successful while others were not. It begs the question of why is it so hard to enable design reuse and capture the untapped potential of the collective intelligence within our companies? Up till now, companies… Read More


Attending DAC in Austin for Free

Attending DAC in Austin for Free
by Daniel Payne on 04-23-2017 at 7:00 am

I’ve been attending DAC since the late 1980’s and can tell you that it’s an annual highlight for me and anyone else interested in the EDA, IP and semiconductor industries. Where else can you see most of the big and little vendors of EDA software, semiconductor IP and foundries in one place? I recently blogged aboutRead More
