The opening day at DAC was Monday and I had an appointment with Simon Rance (Cliosoft) and Stephen Slater, Product Manager of Keysight EDA in their suite. Back in February Daniel Nenni wrote about Keysight EDA acquiring Cliosoft, adding design data and IP management to their software offerings. I really wanted to hear how that … Read More
During the day I do M&A work inside the semiconductor ecosystem and I have been part of more than a dozen acquisitions during my career so I know a good one when I see it and I see a great one with Keysight and Cliosoft, absolutely.
Cliosoft came to SemiWiki 12 years ago when we first went online so I know them quite well. With more than… Read More
Over the years storage has gotten very cheap, or has it? As a typical consumer, we take data storage for granted because access to it has gotten very cheap. Long gone are the days of being limited to 1.44MB floppy disks to store data. The smart devices we carry around with us can store 100’s of GB of data. That is a lot of data. But what about… Read More
Cliosoft recently hosted a webinar where Carl Grace, a scientist from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) talked about a cutting edge project for detecting neutrinos. The project is called the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) project. Many of us know what a neutron is, but what is a neutrino? Before we get… Read More
Dan is joined by Srinath Anantharaman, who founded Cliosoft in 1997 and serves as the company’s CEO. He has over 40 years of software engineering and management experience in the EDA industry.
Dan and Srinath explore the original focus for Cliosoft and how that has expanded over the years. The future of Cliosoft, as well as its plans… Read More
When talking about today’s sophisticated advanced node designs it’s easy to first think about the digital challenges. Yet, the effort to design the needed analog and mixed signal blocks for them should not be underestimated. The need for high speed clocks, high frequency RF circuits and high bit rate IOs makes the analog portions,… Read More
According to the ESD Alliance, the single biggest revenue category in our industry is for semiconductor IP, so the concept of IP reuse is firmly established as a way to get complex products to market more quickly and reducing risk. On the flip side, with hundreds or even thousands of IP blocks in a complex SoC, how does a team, division… Read More
