Managing IP min

Design re-use has enabled IC design teams to create billion-transistor designs where hundreds of IP blocks are pre-built from internal or external sources. Keeping track of where each of these IP blocks came from, what their version status is, managing IP, or even discerning their license status can be a full-time job if tracked… Read More

Links to Cache Architecture

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 integration with Custom Compiler

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

I recently wrote about a ClioSoft® study with Google on using cloud platforms for EDA design and the importance of using persistent storage when doing that. ClioSoft will again be sharing important information on design productivity in the upcoming webinar, Reusing Your IPs & PDKs Successfully With Cadence® Virtuoso®. … Read More


IP-XACT The Answer for IP Reuse

IP-XACT The Answer for IP Reuse
by Tom Simon on 04-09-2019 at 7:00 am

To a lawyer, the term intellectual property means just about anything intangible that has value. However, when you bring that term up in the context of semiconductor design, it means something pretty specific to most people. Yet the implied meaning of the term intellectual property (IP) within the semiconductor field has changed… Read More


Hierarchy Applied to Semiconductor IP Reuse

Hierarchy Applied to Semiconductor IP Reuse
by Daniel Payne on 11-30-2017 at 12:00 pm

When I first started doing IC design back in 1978 we had hierarchical designs, and that was doing a relatively simple 16Kb DRAM chip with only 32,000 transistors using 6um (aka 6,000 nm) design rules. SoC designs today make massive use of hierarchy at all levels of IC design: IC Layout, transistor netlist, gate level netlist, RTL … Read More
