Acconsys and ClioSoft, the industry leader in SoC design and IP management solutions, continue their long association of eight years in China. As a token for the long and fruitful partnership, Jun Wu, Vice President, AcconSys personally handed to Karim Khalfan, Director of Application Engineering, ClioSoft at a function in Shanghai.
With the rapid in the Chinese IC industry, semiconductor enterprises are facing many challenges on several fronts. With the increased demand for their SoCs amidst shorter time to market window, design companies are opening up design offices in multiple sites across the world. With design teams located at different locations, it becomes necessary to collaborate together for complex design flows and ensure the design data is managed securely from concept to GDSII.
ClioSoft’s SOS7TM platform is the leading design data and IP management platform, empowering design teams located at single or multiple sites to collaborate efficiently on analog, digital, RF and mixed-signal designs. Created primarily for hardware design engineers to use across the entire product life cycle, SOS7 provides ease of use and robustness without compromising on performance. SOS7 coupled with its built-in IP management system and Visual design diff enables design teams to be more productive by easily streamlining data sharing, versioning, issue tracking, visualizing differences and release and derivative management for complex SoC designs. “Cliosoft SOS provides us a different work method, which is more convenient to engineers, and improves our productivity considerably.” says Meng-chang Li, Analog design manager at Spreadtrum.SOS7 is integrated with tools from all major vendors such as Cadence Designs, Keyesight Technologies, Mentor and Synopsys.
