Welcome to Our DAC 2018 Newsletter!
It’s hard to believe the calendar has already turned to
June which, if you are in the chip design business, you
know is DAC time. As
always, we will be at the annual gathering of EDA and IP
experts, this year in San Francisco -- so please make a
point of stopping by and seeing us at Booth #1653.
At this year’s DAC, we’ll be showing a range of solutions
for helping manage your IP portfolio, including the latest
version of our Percipient IP Lifecycle Management (IPLM)
platform. Percipient has evolved to be a real game
changer for enterprise-wide coordination of your most
critical design assets and a proven way to implement an
IP-centric design methodology.
We’ll also be showcasing how we put the 'I' in
PLM – our integration with enterprise-class PLM
solutions from partners like Siemens that also include
world-class version control systems such as Perforce
Helix. Please be sure to stop by our booth to say
"hello" to our Perforce
partners who will be joining us to showcase the latest
Another big focus for us has been the automotive
industry, and the ISO 26262 functional safety requirement
specifically. Traceability of designs is an important part
of complying with the ISO standard and we’ve got you
covered. You can read more about this in our
latest white paper, and we have a demo dedicated to
this topic at DAC.
We picked up even more automotive know-how at the recent
26262 for Semiconductors conference in Detroit. A
lot of the movers and shakers in the car business and
their electronics suppliers were at this event. We had
chance to offer our thoughts on how IP management is an
important consideration, sitting along side ARM, NXP and
Intel on a panel
Speaking of events, we held our annual Methodics
User Group Meeting this month too. Our friends at
Maxim Integrated were kind enough to host our impressive
gathering of customers and lots of great information was
shared. Special thanks to Intel, Silicon Labs,
Analog Devices, and Maxim for delivering really insightful
presentations. The interaction among our users and our own
engineering team was fantastic and extremely helpful as we
evolve our IPLM solution.
Finally, in our continuing quest to transition from
"point-tool EDA vendor" to "Enterprise infrastructure
solutions provider", I’d like to introduce everyone to a
new member of our team, Vadim
Iofis who has joined us as VP of Engineering.
Vadim brings great insights for implementing solutions on
an enterprise level and we’re looking forward to him
helping us move further up the value chain of managing our
customers most important design assets.
