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.

One of the first companies we worked with when SemiWiki went live in 2011 was ClioSoft. They had a problem with a competitor spreading misinformation which is certainly not unheard of in EDA. When a company cannot compete technically sometimes they resort to dirty tricks or legal distractions. The first ClioSoft article we published… Read More
