Data Management for Semiconductor Design

Leverage Module-Based Design to Collaborate Globally on Hardware and Software Data

Data Management for Semiconductor Design is used by semiconductor companies to manage the hardware and software data in their products. Data can be managed at both the detailed file/directory level, and at a “modular” level of abstraction. As such, design data contributed by individual teams can be seamlessly integrated into higher level designs. The product’s SITaR workflow manages design data through its “Submit,” “Integrate,” “Test” and “Release” phases. SITaR leverages the power of module-based design in an environment consisting of multiple design modules that are then aggregated by an integrator into a higher-level system. Data Management for Semiconductor Design architecture eliminates the problems associated with integrating large designs by providing a single unified design data management system, which could exist at a single data center, or could be distributed around the world. Furthermore, Data Management for Semiconductor Design can be deployed as the foundation for a semiconductor company’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) strategy.

Data Management for Semiconductor Design is available on premise.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Enables design teams to manage data at both the detailed file/directory level, and at a “modular” level of abstraction
  • Workspaces can be tailored to particular tasks such as verification of an immutably-released design hierarchy, a hierarchy containing work in progress, or a mixture of both
  • There is no need to fetch individual components of a design; Data Management for Semiconductor Design will automatically fetch an entire hierarchy
  • A module hierarchy can be created to allow data from different modules to be fetched into the same directory in a workspace
  • Sophisticated filtering can be applied to files, directories or hrefs to provide fine-grained control over what data is fetched or operated upon
  • The “whereused” command will trace hrefs upwards, reporting all design hierarchies in which the block has been included
  • Intuitive built-in workflow called SITaR (Submit, Integrate, Test, and Release)
  • Integrations for EDA tools provided by Cadence and Synopsys are available as add-ons to Data Management for Semiconductor Design
