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.

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
Welcome to my newly relocated column, I am so excited about my new relationship with Daniel Nenni, and the other esteemed bloggers on SemiWiki. For those who do not know me, I have been a featured columnist on another EDA portal for the past 12-plus years, and in EDA for 20-plus years. As the leading recruiter in our industry, (or so … Read More
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
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
Software configuration management (SCM) has been around for a long time with commercial SCM offerings such as ClearCase and Perforce and public domain mainstays such as CVS and Subversion. Similarly, over the last two decades we’ve seen a big uptake in the adoption of hardware configuration management (HCM) methodologies driven… Read More
ClioSoft is well known for their SoC design data management software SOS7 and more recently for their IP reuse ecosystem called designHUB. What is less known is how designHUB enables design teams to collaborate efficiently and better manage their projects by keeping everyone in sync during development. Not only does it provide… Read More
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
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
