Micronas Deploys ClioSoft SOS Design Collaboration Platform

Implementation of SOS for Synopsys Custom Compiler improves collaboration, design data management and IP reuse

FREMONT, Calif., May 17, 2016 – Micronas, a TDK group company and the most preferred partner for sensing and control, has deployed ClioSoft’s SOS7 Design Management Platform. ClioSoft is the pioneer and leading developer of system-on-chip (SoC) design configuration and enterprise intellectual property (IP) management solutions for the semiconductor industry. ClioSoft’s SOS platform is integrated with major EDA flows from Cadence Design Systems, Keysight Technologies, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys.

The deployment of ClioSoft SOS for Synopsys Custom Compiler™ at Micronas’ operational headquarters in Freiburg, Germany, will improve design collaboration and data management among design teams as well as continuing to promote IP reuse.

“We were pleased, during due diligence, to find that ClioSoft is very well regarded for tight integration into existing tool flows, fast bring-up, and support,” says Dr. Gernot Koch, CAD manager at Micronas. “Their tight integration with Synopsys® Custom Compiler enables our designers to manage the different versions of their design and collaborate efficiently with other team members. As our design engineers continue to tackle development of increasingly complex mixed-signal, sensor-based applications, we are looking forward to benefiting from ClioSoft’s long-term and ongoing integration with Synopsys Custom Compiler.”

“Micronas is recognized in the automotive and industrial business as a reliable global partner for intelligent, sensor-based system solutions,” says Ranjit Adhikary, vice president of marketing at ClioSoft. “It has been a pleasure to add Micronas to our ever-expanding list of European customers. We look forward for a long and mutually beneficial relationship between the two companies.”
