ClioSoft to Present Design Data Management Support for Cadence IC 6.x

ClioSoft, Inc., supplier of the leading design data management suite for hardware and software developers, will be demonstrating design data management (DDM) support for the Cadence® Virtuoso® custom design platform at the 13th Si2/OpenAccess+ conference in Santa Clara on Monday, October 13, 2008. ClioSoft and Cadence will jointly demonstrate the seamless integration of the ClioSoft SOS Design Collaboration Platform with the Cadence Virtuoso 6.1.3 release, compliant with the OpenAccess standard. SOS provides management and versions control of design data, streamlining the design process by enhancing communication and facilitating efficient and accurate sharing of design data from concept through tape-out. The tight integration of ClioSoft’s DDM suite with the Cadence Virtuoso design flow improves design team productivity, reduces the chance of mask respins due to configuration errors and makes design reuse more efficient.

“ClioSoft is an important member of the Cadence Virtuoso eco-system,” said Steven Lewis, product marketing director at Cadence. “ClioSoft’s SOS DDM, combined with the Virtuoso 6.1.3 release, provides customers not only with an optimized design flow, but also with the confidence to easily track and maintain their design IP.”

“ClioSoft’s SOS Design Collaboration Platform is seamlessly integrated with Virtuoso 6.x just as it is with the earlier releases of Virtuoso using the CDBA database,” said Srinath Anantharaman, CEO of ClioSoft. “We have been surprised at the rapid rate of adoption of Virtuoso 6.x. Several of our larger customers have been using the SOS DDM integrated with the Virtuoso 6.x flow for over a year.”

In June 2008, Cliosoft introduced a free, “lite” version of the SOS DDM system that provides a complete revision control solution for Cadence Virtuoso, suitable for small teams of engineers working at the same location.
