Maxim Selects Methodics as IP Lifecycle Management Platform to Enable Enterprise IP-Centric Design Approach Across Global Design Network

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Methodics Inc, the leader in IP lifecycle management, today announced that Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:MXIM) has selected its Percipient platform for Maxim’s worldwide chip design operations. Citing the need to support an “IP-centric design methodology” across the enterprise, Maxim’s global team will use Methodics’ Percipient solution in the development of products using their next-generation process technology.

“With each generation of design, the volume of design data and IP generated throughout the organization grows exponentially and the old way of managing that complexity simply doesn’t work anymore. We realized we needed a system that helps us manage the IP we have today and supports best practices for IP re-use moving forward,” said Rick Stawicki, Executive Director, EDA Engineering at Maxim Integrated. “Methodics offered a powerful solution by providing us with a collaborative platform to perform IP re-use more efficiently and in a sustainable, scalable way.”

The Methodics platform provides a way for Maxim’s ever-growing portfolio of design data to be identified, stored, traced and organized. The platform is built on a high-performance database that speeds search, reduces synchronization time, and reduces workspace size significantly. The system’s advanced caching and data distribution capabilities are geared for enterprise requirements, eliminating network latency, reducing workspace creation time, and reducing disk-space consumption.

Hierarchical approach for better efficiency

Maxim looked to Methodics for its ability to manage hierarchical IP. Methodics natively organizes IP, hierarchically yielding a better understanding and traceability of relationships between various elements of the design. By using Methodics’ hierarchical capabilities, Maxim designers can significantly reduce the time to manage common tasks, such as querying the status of a hierarchical IP in a workspace or generating trees to view conflicts. This allows advanced tracking of parent-child relationships ensuring that errors found by one project are visible to all users of that IP across the enterprise.

The Percipient system offers a broader view of design and IP data, including critical information on IP specifications, bug history, versions, and hierarchy – all of which allows them to search and identify the right IP for the task at hand. The system’s ability to set up a taxonomy of keywords and values as search terms dramatically reduces the time and effort in seeing the entire range of available design assets.

“We’re encouraging our teams to take an IP-centric view of what they are doing – designing IP and assembling chips, rather than simply designing chips. We need to lower all barriers to reuse and make it efficient for the designer. Methodics does this, giving us visibility and traceability across our entire IP portfolio and across the entire enterprise. The Methodics’ system natively leads us to do design reuse right,” Stawicki said.
