    One of the benefits of being part of SemiWiki is building relationships with a wide variety of companies covering every semiconductor design application imaginable. We are blessed, absolutely. Another benefit of being part of SemiWiki are the invitations to attend, participate, and even organize events such as EDPS. Last year I organized FinFET Day which was a huge success. This year I organized IP Day with a keynote from Martin Lund ...

    For most of my career, I worked as a CAD and design flow engineer. In the fall of 2012, I moved to a different role, as an applications and support manager at ClioSoft Inc. In my opinion, this was a very good opportunity for me to work with other CAD engineers and teams.

    Having worked with different CAD teams in my career, ...

    Cliosoft was one of the first companies to work with SemiWiki so they are an integral part of our amazing growth and we are part of theirs. I remember talking to Srinath Anantharaman (Cliosoft CEO) for the first time and discussing the goals of working together. It was simple really, there was disinformation in the market about Cliosoft and they wanted to set the record straight. The best way to do that of course was to talk to customers ...

    In last few years IP design has grown significantly compared to the rest of the semiconductor industry. There are newer IP start-ups opening across the world, particularly in India and China. Amid this rush, I wanted to understand the actual dynamics pushing this business and whether all of these IPs follow quality standards. Quality is a must considering IP integration into high-end SoCs. I found a very nice opportunity talking to Ritesh Saraf, CEO at OmniPhy. OmniPhy develops specialized IPs for ...

    Arasan recently adopted ClioSoft for data management (DM) for design and development of Arasan's Silicon IP products. This morning I talked to Erik Peterson, Senior CAD and Verification Engineer AMS Design about their experiences bringing up ClioSoft.

    Data management infrastructure is critical with engineering projects shared across different continents. Arasan’s development ...

    With the award of the Nobel prize for physics to Higgs (who used to work in the same building at Edinburgh as I did, reflected glory) and Englert yesterday, CERN has been in the news. ClioSoft has an interesting presentation given at CERN about designing a detector chips. The work was done two or three years ago, managed from Lawrence Berkeley ...

    One of the challenges in doing a complex analog or mixed signal design is that things get out of step. One designer is tweaking the schematic and re-simulating, another is tweaking the layout of transistors, another is changing the routing. This is not because the design flow is messed up, but rather it reflects reality. If you wait until ...

    GenApSys is a biotech company developing proprietary DNA sequencing technology. As part of that they develop their own custom sequencing chips. These have an analog component and like many people they use the Cadence Virtuoso analog design environment for this.

    I talked to Hamid Rategh who is GenApSys's VP engineering. In previous companies over the ...

    VIA Telecom, who makes CDMA base-band processor chips, picked ClioSoft SOS for use by its analog mixed-signal design teams. Like many such teams they use Cadence's Virtuoso layout platform. ClioSoft's SOS is seamlessly integrated into Virtuoso so that designers don't really need to spend much time worrying about hardware configuration management (HCM), most operations ...
