ClioSoft and Silvaco Collaborate to Integrate ClioSoft’s SOS Design Data Management Platform with Silvaco’s Analog Custom Design Tools

Sponsored by Businesswire

ClioSoft and
today announced SOS for Silvaco, a SoC design management platform
developed by ClioSoft, Inc. in collaboration with Silvaco, Inc. The
solution involves integration of ClioSoft’s flagship SOS7
design management platform
, into Silvaco’s Analog
Custom Design
tool flow to provide design management and multi-site
team collaboration support for designers who use Silvaco’s Analog IC
tool suite to develop analog and mixed-signal designs for process nodes
down to 5nm.

ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management platform for Silvaco Gateway and
Expert tools provides analog/mixed-signal designers a seamless,
integrated design-management solution to improve design productivity.
Users have an easy-to-use, intuitive interface for revision control and
release management within the Silvaco tools to manage their schematics,
layouts and other views. Designers can integrate SOS7 for Silvaco into
any design flow without having to modify their existing design

“Silicon Creations provides world-class silicon intellectual property
(IP) for precision and general-purpose timing (PLLs), low power,
high-performance SerDes and high-speed differential I/Os,” said Brian
Eplett, Director of Engineering at Silicon Creations. “Our designs have
been integrated on more than 500 chips, in technologies ranging from 5nm
to 180nm. We rely on a suite of Silvaco’s products, including Gateway
schematic editor and the Expert hierarchical IC layout editor. We have
been using ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management platform on the cloud for
the past few years. With integration into Silvaco’s Analog Custom Design
tools Gateway and Expert, SOS7 enables us to securely manage our design
with our team located in multiple sites around the world. The
integration support we have received from ClioSoft and Silvaco is
excellent and the support team is very knowledgeable and prompt in
resolving issues.”

SOS7 for Silvaco features include:

  • Integration with Silvaco Gateway and Expert for auto check-out and
  • Easy access to design management commands from the library navigator
    in the tools
  • Data management operations for an entire design hierarchy
  • Built for performance, scalability and data security

These and other features of SOS for Silvaco also minimize possible
configuration errors, re-design iterations and makes design reuse more

“We are pleased to provide SOS7 design management platform for the
Silvaco Analog IC tool suite for use by leading analog and mixed-signal
design teams, such as Silicon Creations,” said Srinath Anantharaman,
founder and CEO of ClioSoft. “The integrated solution enables design
teams to collaborate efficiently in a secure design environment when
developing their IPs or SoCs either locally or across multiple design
sites. It enables design teams to successfully tapeout their designs by
mitigating the risk by sharing and using the correct version of the
design data and IPs.”

“As analog and mixed-signal designs continue to grow in complexity,
there is an increasing demand for an enterprise design data management
for design teams to build and collaborate without risking productivity
time,” said Fred Sendig, General Manager ACD Division at Silvaco. “Our
collaboration with ClioSoft delivers a proven commercial SoC design
management solution for analog and mixed-signal design teams using the
Silvaco Analog IC tool suite.”
