Integrated solution offers ADS users seamlessly integrated revision control and enterprise design data management
FREMONT, Calif., May 7, 2013 – ClioSoft today introduced SOS viaADS, a new product resulting from a joint development effort between ClioSoft and Agilent Technologies. The solution integrates ClioSoft’s SOS Design Collaboration platform into Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS) to provide version control and enterprise wide design management.
ClioSoft’s SOS viaADS product -- http://www.cliosoft.com/products/sos_viaads.shtml -- provides users of ADS 2012.08 or later with seamlessly integrated design management. Users have easy right-click menu access to version control capabilities within the standard ADS user interface. Design management (DM) features include:
- Version control of libraries, cells and views
- Auto check-out and check-in when a view is edited
- Check-out locks to prevent concurrent changes
- Easy rollback to previous revisions
- Data management operations for an entire design hierarchy
- Release and derivative management
- External reference and reuse
- Multi-site global collaboration
The tight integration of the SOS platform with Agilent’s Advanced Design System improves RF and high-speed digital design team productivity, reduces the chance of mask re-spins due to configuration errors and makes design reuse more efficient.

“As high-frequency designs continue to grow in complexity, with teams of engineers working across multiple technologies, there is increasing demand for true enterprise-level design data management,” said Greg Peterschmidt, ADS product planning manager at Agilent. “Through our collaboration with ClioSoft, we can deliver a unique integration that, for the first time, brings together a platform fully dedicated to high-frequency design, ADS, with a comprehensive design data management solution, SOS.”
“Agilent is the vendor of choice for thousands of RF and high-speed digital designers worldwide,” said Srinath Anantharaman, founder and CEO of ClioSoft. “Improved productivity and cycle time are always top goals for design teams, and we are pleased to help Agilent bring them more effective collaboration and the ability to enhance the sharing and management of design data and IP.”
ClioSoft is the premier developer of hardware configuration management (HCM) solutions. The company's
SOS Design Collaboration platform is built from the ground up to handle the requirements of hardware design flows. The SOS platform provides a sophisticated multi-site development environment that enables global team collaboration, design and IP reuse, and efficient management of design data from concept through tape-out. Custom engineered adaptors seamlessly integrate SOS with leading design flows – Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS), Cadence’s Virtuoso® Custom IC, Mentor’s Pyxis Custom IC Design, Synopsys’ Galaxy Custom Designer and Laker™ Custom Design. The
Visual Design Diff (VDD) engine enables designers to easily identify changes between two versions of a schematic or layout or the entire design hierarchy below by graphically highlighting the differences directly in the editors.
