Please join me for an IP conversation in collaboration with ClioSoft on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 @ 11:00 AM PST. At the EDPS Workshop IP day there were two interesting presentations on IP reuse. The first one was by Warren Savage of IPextreme: Top Ten Reasons Why Internal IP Reuse Fails. The second was by Ranjit Adhikary of ClioSoft: Making Design Reuse Work. Take a look at the slides and let’s talk about it.
Topic: Making Design Reuse Work
When: Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 @ 11:00 AM Pacific
Presenter:Daniel Nenni, SemiWiki
Who should attend
- Managers and engineers using IP’s in their SoC
- CAD engineers/managers
Design Reuse and IP Management are common buzz words in our industry. Yet of late, they have gained more significance with a number of companies emphasizing the need to reuse designs as much as possible.
In order to make design reuse work a number of things must be considered: Selecting the desired IP and integrating it into the design while simultaneously managing the updates to the IP is one aspect of the design flow which must be fine-tuned. It is also necessary to increase the participation of designers in creating reusable IP and provide a forum through which designers can collaborate. Finally, to further the cause of design reuse, it is important for us to move away from the traditional IP model and identify other things in the design flow which can be considered as IP. In this presentation, we will focus on how we can make design reuse work more productive.

About ClioSoft, Inc.
ClioSoft is the premier developer of hardware configuration management (HCM) solutions. The company’s SOS Design Collaboration platform is built from the ground up to handle the requirements of hardware design flows. The SOS platform provides a sophisticated multi-site development environment that enables global team collaboration, design and IP reuse, and efficient management of design data from concept through tape-out. Custom engineered adaptors seamlessly integrate SOS with leading design flows – Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS), Cadence’s Virtuoso® Custom IC, Mentor’s Pyxis Custom IC Design, Synopsys’ Galaxy Custom Designer and Laker™ Custom Design. The Visual Design Diff (VDD) engine enables designers to easily identify changes between two versions of a schematic or layout or the entire design hierarchy below by graphically highlighting the differences directly in the editors.
