Concurrency and Collaboration – Keeping a Dispersed Design Team in Synch with NetApp

 

In a recent post, I discussed how NetApp provides comprehensive support for moving your EDA flow to the cloud. In that post, I explored the tools, technologies and services that help design organizations move to the cloud in a coherent, predictable, and incremental manner. Having a smooth-running hybrid/on-premise or… Read More


Data Management Challenges in Physical Design

Data Management Challenges in Physical Design
by Alex Tan on 02-08-2019 at 7:00 am

IC physical design (PD) teams face several challenges while dealing with tapeout schedules. With shrinking process nodes and stringent PPA targets, the complexity of physical design flows and EDA design tools has increased multifold. In addition the amount of design data that needs to be managed has also increased exponentially.… Read More

Qorvo Uses ClioSoft to Bring Design Data Management to RF Design
by Mitch Heins on 02-13-2017 at 12:00 pm

A couple weeks ago I gave a heads-up about a webinar that was being hosted by ClioSoft, Qorvo and Keysight. The topic of the webinar was how to manage custom RF designs across multiple design teams and CAD flows. The webinar was held on February 1st and included presentations by Marcus Ray of Qorvo and Michele Azarian of Keysight.

Managing International Design Collaboration

Managing International Design Collaboration
by Bernard Murphy on 12-09-2016 at 7:00 am

Customer perspectives on a tool are always interesting, as much for why they felt the need for the tool as how it is working out for them in practice. Active-Semi, an emerging leader in power management and digital motor drive ICs gave a presentation at CDNLive describing why they adopted ClioSoft tools for design collaboration … Read More


3 Small-Team Design Productivity Challenges Managed

3 Small-Team Design Productivity Challenges Managed
by Don Dingee on 09-21-2016 at 4:00 pm

“Data management tools? We use small teams doing small designs. Each project only has two or three designers. Everyone uses the same EDA tools. Why do we need another tool for collaboration?” Good question. If you enjoy frequent meetings and redoing work because someone didn’t understand the status of IP blocks, the answers may… Read More


Go Native – With Methodics at DAC in Austin

Go Native – With Methodics at DAC in Austin
by Tom Simon on 06-01-2016 at 7:00 am

DAC is often a yearly reflection point for the companies that exhibit and attend. For the innovators it is an opportunity to look back and see a year of progress and development. Fortunately, this is the case for Methodics, which has had a strong year both in terms of business and technical development. Though, we easily see how these… Read More


Bulking Up of Design Data Calls for Version Control on Steroids

Bulking Up of Design Data Calls for Version Control on Steroids
by Tom Simon on 05-17-2016 at 4:00 pm

Even though design management systems are gaining popularity as a way to manage design data growth, they actually contribute to the problem of exploding data size. What we already know is that a linear increase in die size causes exponential growth in chip area, and that smaller feature sizes compound this effect in the same way.… Read More
