Collaborative SoC design management platform offers analog mixed-signal users to seamlessly manage different revisions & releases of design data from the Tanner IC tool cockpit

Fremont, Calif., November 12, 2018
– ClioSoft today announced SOS for Tanner, a SoC design management platform developed by ClioSoft in collaboration with Mentor, a Siemens business. The solution involves integration of ClioSoft’s flagship enterprise data management software, SOS7 Design Management Platform, into Mentor’s Tanner IC Design Tool Flow to provide design management and multi-site team collaboration support for designers who use Tanner IC tools to develop analog and mixed-signal SoCs.

ClioSoft's SOS7 design management platform for Tanner’s S-Edit and L-Edit tools provides analog/mixed-signal designers a seamless, integrated design-management solution to improve design productivity. Users have an easy-to-use, intuitive interface for revision control and release management within the Tanner tools to manage their schematics, layouts and other views. Designers can integrate SOS for Tanner into any design flow without having to modify their existing design methodology.

ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management platform empowers single or multi-site design teams to collaborate efficiently on complex analog, digital, RF and mixed-signal designs from concept to GDSII. It is integrated with tools from various EDA vendors, providing a cohesive design environment for all types of SoC designs. SOS7 also includes, among other features, integrated revision control, release and derivative management, Visual Design Diff and interfaces to commonly-used issue tracking systems.

SOS for Tanner features include:
  • Easy access to design management commands from the library navigator in the tools
  • Integration with Tanner S-Edit and L-Edit for auto check-out and check-in
  • Workspaces with links to smart cache to optimize network storage
  • Data management operations for an entire design hierarchy
  • Meta data caching for enhanced remote site performance
  • Offline mode support to minimize impact of network outages
  • Built for performance, scalability and data security
These and other features of SOS for Tanner also minimize the chance of configuration errors without large re-design iterations and make design reuse more efficient. For more details please view the joint webinar titled: Enhanced Productivity with SOS7 Integrated with Tanner Tools

"As analog and mixed-signal designs continue to grow in complexity, there is an increasing demand for an enterprise design data management for design teams to build and collaborate without risking productivity time," said Greg Lebsack, EDS General Manager of Mentor, a Siemens business. "Our collaboration with ClioSoft, delivers an outstanding commercial SoC design management solution for analog and mixed-signal design teams using the Tanner IC design flow tools.”

"We are pleased to be able to provide SOS for Tanner IC tools for use by analog and mixed-signal design teams," said Srinath Anantharaman, founder and CEO of ClioSoft. "The integrated solution enables analog and mixed-signal design teams to improve design collaboration when developing their SoCs and mitigate the risk by sharing and using the correct version of the design data and IPs."
