Many Design Management (DM) tools used by the Semiconductor Industry today are based on outdated, proprietary version control systems and have fallen significantly behind the state of the art. These tools are often only capable of supporting a single project per server due to the severe scalability and performance limitations inherent in their underlying technology. This ‘server per project’ limitation siloes teams and their information, preventing sharing and reuse across the organization.

This paper describes how modern DM tools are built on industry standard version control systems to take a centralized, IP based approach - one that leverages a ‘Single Source of Truth’ architecture for Platform Based Design and enables a high degree of design reuse to speed development times, improve quality, and reduce risk.
