23 new customers; significant growth in Europe
FREMONT, Calif., March 8, 2012 -- ClioSoft, Inc., developer of the premier hardware configuration management (HCM) solutions for the electronics design industry, reported a 53% annual increase in bookings for 2011. The rise in bookings was attributed to increased adoption by existing customers as well as the addition of 23 new customers. Growth in all regions was steady, with the highest growth in Europe, which booked a 139% increase over 2010. This included new enterprise deployments at Allegro Microsystems, Lattice Semiconductor, ON Semiconductor, and Rohde & Schwarz as well as significant growth at Analog Devices, International Rectifier, Linear Technology and others.
ClioSoft’s SOS hardware configuration management platform provides management and version control of design data, streamlining the design process by enhancing communication and facilitating efficient and accurate sharing of design data from concept through tape-out. The tight integration of ClioSoft’s design data management suite with major design flows improves hardware design team productivity, reduces the chance of mask re-spins due to configuration errors and makes design reuse more efficient.
Talking to Daniel Payne of SemiWiki in 2011, ClioSoft users said:
“I took over the responsibility for ClioSoft tools, did upgrades and handled Cadence transitions, and I only had to make a few phone calls to get help. Tech support was never stumped. They can monitor my screen to see what I’m doing, find the issue, and tell me how to fix it. ClioSoft has offered me the best EDA support that I've seen in 30 years.” - Grego Sanguinetti, Tektronix.
“Because of our multi-site IC design process we needed design data management that worked inside of the Cadence Virtuoso Schematic and layout tools and it had to support multi-site (schematics in US, layout in India), so we chose the SOS tool from ClioSoft. We had evaluated other companies and decided on ClioSoft [because of] many significant features. Some of them are the usage of low disk space using cache mechanism, multi site design support, reference project features and so on.” – Nani Subramanian, Mosys.
“[We were looking for] an HCM system that felt invisible to users, helped us automate our tool flow, enforced design conventions, and gave us notification of changes and a way to see changes. Within the first day we had SOS up and running the way we wanted it. It protects our designers from accidentally loosing valuable data, plus it gets rid of manual tracking of design version details.” - James Rollins, Avnera.
“[When I was] At Zarlink, we used
ClioSoft SOS, so it was our first choice to use at Moortec also. ClioSoft is used inside of the Custom Designer menus, making it easy to checkin and checkout schematics and layout. The GUI interface is intuitive to use (we tried other freeware tools that used Subversion, but gave up on it). The embedded integration of SOS makes it look like another feature in Custom Designer.” – Stephen Crosher, Moortec.
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 – Cadence’s Virtuoso® Custom IC, Synopsys’ Galaxy Custom Designer, Mentor’s IC flows, and SpringSoft’s Laker™ Custom Layout Automation System. ClioSoft's innovative Universal DM Adaptor technology "future proofs" data management needs by ensuring that data from any flow can be meaningfully managed. The Visual Design Diff (VDD) engine enables designers to easily identify changes between two versions of a schematic or layout by graphically highlighting the differences directly in the editors.
