Welcome to Our December Newsletter!
First, let me wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and a very prosperous New Year. At Methodics, 2015 has been an exciting year: we've introduced new products, doubled our sales, signed a partnership and reseller agreement with Perforce, added lots of new customers, and added new distributors in key locations. We look forward to an even more exciting 2016!
For starters, we would like to welcome David DePaula on board as our Director of Sales, EMEA beginning January 1st. David brings more than 18 years of sales and business development experience in the semiconductor and EDA industry, including 7 years developing the sales of Synchronicity/Dassault Systemes in Europe from 2005 to 2012.
We've also added a new distributor in Taiwan and China, Graser Technology. Graser have been a Cadence channel partner for a number of years and we’re very happy to be working with them.
On the technology front…
This newsletter includes two new white papers with a focus on optimizing your design environment infrastructure:
The first is called "Best Practices for Perforce Based Hardware Design” and is the product of many internal discussions we’ve had with the Perforce applications team and our existing customer base around the topic of SoC design methodologies in a Perforce/ Methodics tool environment. This methodology guidance should be a great help to any new customers considering Perforce in a hardware context, and reflects the design flow implementations at many of our most successful customers.
The second white paper is titled "Managing Your Design Environment in an IP-centric Design Methodology” and is a overview of how to treat EDA tools and other environment configurations as “IP’s” in a project configuration.
We’ve also collaborated on two SemiWiki blogs focused on improved IP development & reuse methodologies:
Again, these reflect road-tested methodologies for leveraging reuse from your existing Semiconductor IP assets, and managing dynamic and evolving project design data in an IP-centric environment.
If one or more of the topics covered in this newsletter grabs your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you'd like to hear more about it. We'd be happy to arrange a personal meeting for you.
