Product LifeCycle Management (PLM) systems have shown incredible value for integrating the enterprise with a single view of the product design, deployment, maintenance, and end-of-life processes.  PLM systems have traditionally grown from the mechanical design space, and this still forms their strength.

Meanwhile, due… Read More


Resilient Supply Chains a Must for Electronic Systems

Resilient Supply Chains a Must for Electronic Systems

three phase approach to supply chain resilence

The last few years have seen multiple disruptions in the supply chain in many industries. One of the key technologies that many fingers have pointed to is the semiconductor technology.  As products in all industries become more electronics based, semiconductors play a key role since no end system could function today without … Read More


Combining IP and Product Lifecycle Tools

Combining IP and Product Lifecycle Tools
by Daniel Payne on 04-03-2018 at 12:00 pm

No single EDA company provides all of the tools needed to define requirements, design exploration, track IP, simulate, manage and verify a complex SoC system, so it makes sense that EDA vendors and point tool companies have tools that work together to achieve all of these difficult tasks. Systems design has been around for decades… Read More


Webinar – Next Generation DDRM Needs, Solutions

Webinar – Next Generation DDRM Needs, Solutions
by Bernard Murphy on 05-02-2017 at 7:00 am

I’m a believer in product life-cycle management (PLM) for semiconductor design. It’s not an attention-grabbing topic like faster verification or improved PPA in implementation, but now massive IP-based design is routine, IP’s are sourced from multiple suppliers each cycling though multiple revisions and now that design … Read More


Dassault Systemes Hosts New Microsite Focused on IP Reuse Challenges

Dassault Systemes Hosts New Microsite Focused on IP Reuse Challenges
by Mitch Heins on 01-04-2017 at 12:00 pm

I recently wrote an article about networks-on-chip (NoC) and how Systems-On-Chip integrated circuits (SoCs) are becoming increasingly more complex and heterogeneous in nature. While researching for that article I came upon a new micro-site by Dassault Systemes that goes into great detail about the operational challenges… Read More


Making PLM Actually Work for for IC Design

Making PLM Actually Work for for IC Design
by Tom Simon on 04-12-2016 at 12:00 pm

The topic of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) conjures up images of usage on airplanes, tanks and cars. That’s because it was developed decades ago to help make product development and delivery more efficient for big expensive manufactured products. It worked well for its intended markets by combining and managing all the … Read More


Dassault’s Simulation Lifecycle Management

Dassault’s Simulation Lifecycle Management
by Paul McLellan on 09-21-2013 at 4:29 pm

The first thing to realize about Dassault’s Simulation Lifecycle Management platform is that in the non-IC world where Dassault primarily operates, simulation doesn’t just mean functional verification or running Spice. It is anything during the design that produces analytical data. All of that data is important… Read More


Who is One Step Above Colgate and One Below P&G?

Who is One Step Above Colgate and One Below P&G?
by Paul McLellan on 08-21-2013 at 1:13 am

So who do you think is #31 on the list on Forbes list of the most innovative companies in the world? One place above Colgate and one place below Procter and Gamble. Your first thought is probably why am I asking this on a blog covering semiconductors and going on about toothpaste manufacturers. The answer is Dassault Systèmes. Perhaps… Read More


PinPoint in Practice

PinPoint in Practice
by Paul McLellan on 05-23-2013 at 10:40 pm

I talked with a mystery person earlier this week. I would love to tell you his (or her) name and the company he (or she) works for but they are the sort of company that doesn’t casually endorse any suppliers so it all has to remain anonymous. But they have been a customer of Pinpoint, originally from Tuscany Design Automation until… Read More


Dassault DAC Assault

Dassault DAC Assault
by Paul McLellan on 05-19-2013 at 3:25 pm

Dassault Systèmes is not a company entirely new to DAC, but with the acquisition of Matrix One (which had already acquired DesignSync) a few years ago and Tuscany Design Automation’s PinPoint last year they now have a richer portfolio to support various aspects of electronic design. By the way, Dassault is a French company… Read More
