Hi Again, and welcome to our DAC Newsletter!

At this year's conference we have a number of exciting announcements. The first (and most exciting) is WarpStorTM, our content aware, network storage accelerator.  If you’re in the position where you’re continually running out of disk space, or your workspace load and updates are taking forever due to NFS and IO bandwidth restrictions, this is the tool for you!  WarpStor is technology agnostic and will work with your existing NetApp, EMC, Dell, Fujitsu, or other storage solutions and standard backups, plugs into your NFS configuration with no client kernel changes, and causes minimal disruption to your existing IT infrastructure.  We’ve been using this technology for over a year as part of our internal regressions flow, and it has helped us tremendously.  I hope it can help you also.   More information here and a datasheet can be downloaded here.

Next up, we’re announcing a new channel through Bedrock Technology Partners.  Bedrock will be helping us expand our sales presence in the U.S. and with their focus on systems solutions, we expect them to enable the sale of WarpStor and other appliances we have in the pipeline.  We’re looking forward to working with Tom, Ravi, Avinash, Mark, and the entire Bedrock team!

We’re also announcing a new ProjectIC integration, this time to the ARM Socrates IP integration toolsuite.  We’ll be showing a seamless IP release and SoC integration at our booth.  Please email us at to schedule a personal demo.

Finally, we've made available a new white paper on the topic of Hierarchical IP management.  Please take a look and give us your feedback.

If you're coming to DAC, I look forward to seeing you there!  If not, please email and let us know if you're interested in hearing more about any of our technologies.  We'd be happy to arrange a private demonstration for you.

Best Regards,

Achieve Big Savings in Workspace Creation Time, Disk Storage Costs, and IO Bandwidth Requirements

Come See Us at DAC 2015

It's DAC time again, and Methodics once again has a lot happening!  Please visit us at booth #1114, to learn about our exciting new technology:

  • WarpStor for drastically reducing storage costs, IO bandwidth requirements, and workspace creation time

  • The latest advancements in ProjectIC and VersIC for IP Lifecycle and IP-centric Design Management

  • Integration with ARM Socrates tools that enable their partners to configure and integrate ARM IP with 3rd party IP

We are also excited to be involved in other activities around the show including:

  • "IP is Dead. Long Live IP!"
    Vishal Moondhra, VP of Applications
    Tuesday, June 9, 1:30 pm in the IP Track (Room 101)

  • “Producing Analog/Mixed-Signal IP Requires a Best-in-Class Design Flow”
    Simon Butler, CEO
    Wednesday, June 10, 10:30 am at the Cadence Theater (Booth #3515)

And, on a final note...  Please drop by our booth to enter our daily drawing for a set of cool Beats headphones!

White Paper: Hierarchical IP Subsystems

by: Vishal Moondhra, VP of Applications, Methodics

Most practical SoCs are more than just a collection of IPs and custom development. There is a clear hierarchy associated with the IPs that are used, and there are many advantages to managing your designs in a hierarchical way.  This paper examines those advantages.
