A Brief History of IP Management

A Brief History of IP Management
by Daniel Nenni on 04-24-2019 at 12:00 pm

As RTL design started to increase in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, it was becoming apparent that some amount of management was needed to keep track of all the design files and their associated versions. Because of the parallels to software development, design teams looked to the tools and methodologies that were in use by software… Read More


Three things you should know about designHUB!

Three things you should know about designHUB!
by Daniel Nenni on 03-13-2019 at 7:00 am

One of the key growth areas for the semiconductor ecosystem is IP which of course includes IP related EDA software. In May of 2017 design management/collaboration expert (one of my personal favorite EDA companies) ClioSoft announced designHUB[SUP]®[/SUP] for IP management and re-use.

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.

SoC design cost and entry point
For over… Read More

There is a bit of nostalgia here since ClioSoft was one of the first companies that we (SemiWiki) worked with 7 years ago. Back then it was hard for an emerging EDA company to get noticed by the mainstream media much less collaborate with them. Since then we have published 80 blogs with ClioSoft that have garnered more than 350,000 views.… Read More
