ClioSoft Closes 2016 with Continued Growth

Best-in-class design collaboration platform drives new contracts, customers and renewals

FREMONT, Calif., February 28, 2017 – ClioSoft, Inc., a leader in system-on-chip (SoC) design data and intellectual property (IP) management solutions for the semiconductor design industry, today reported a 20% increase in new bookings for 2016 along with further adoption of ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management platform by existing customers. Thirty new accounts were added to ClioSoft’s existing customer base of over 200 customers in 2016. The rise in bookings was due to an increased growth in analog and RF designers adopting ClioSoft’s SOS7 solution and an upsurge for it's IP management solution.

SOS Virtuoso and SOS ADS , used by the analog and RF designers, is built on top of the SOS7 design management platform. The SOS7 design management platform enables designers to work with other team members, located either locally or at remote design sites, to build and collaborate on the same design, from concept to GDSII.

“It has been a good year for us especially for the SOS7 Design Management Platform” said Srinath Anantharaman, founder and CEO of ClioSoft. “SOS7, which is the re-architected update to the existing SOS design management platform, is being received very well amongst our customers. Released about a year and a half back, a number of companies have now started to standardize on the SOS7 design management platform, which has been built for performance, security and reliability. SOS7 takes design collaboration to a whole new level and has helped us win enterprise accounts from our competition."

“ClioSoft's SOS7 design management platform has helped us collaborate efficiently between designers located at multiple sites and improve the productivity of our design teams,” said Linh Hong, Vice President and General Manager of OTP Division. It is important for us to manage the numerous design revisions and at the same time enable the design teams to work efficiently. The tight integration of SOS with EDA tools such as Cadence® Virtuoso® Platform makes it easy for our engineers to develop the next generation memories and work together without stepping on each other's toes. SOS provides high performance and the flexibility needed to manage the handoffs of complex design flows including fine grained access control to our project data. Moreover, the quality and responsiveness of ClioSoft's support team is outstanding.”

ClioSoft provides the only design management platform for multi-site design collaboration for all types of designs – analog, digital, RF and mixed-signal. By facilitating easy design handoffs along with secure and efficient sharing of design data from concept through tape-out, SOS7 platform allows multi-site design collaboration for dispersed development teams. Tight integration with several EDA tools from Cadence, Keysight Technologies, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys® with SOS7 provides a cohesive design environment for all types of designs and enables designers across multiple design centers to increase productivity and efficiency in their complex design flows. In addition to enabling design engineers to manage design data and tool features from the same cockpit, SOS7 provides integrated revision control, release and derivative management and issue tracking interface to commonly used bug tracking systems. Using SOS7 helps reduce the possibility of design re-spins.
