KEEPING SCHEMATICS AND LAYOUTS IN SYNC

Cliosoft VDD helps schematic and layout engineers collaborate and ensure that the latest schematics and layouts are 100% in sync. A schematic engineer can make changes to the schematic without keeping notes to report to the layout engineer. The layout engineer can see all the changes precisely without any help from the designer and can modify the layout to match the latest schematic changes. 

CHECK-INS MADE

ACCURATE

Cliosoft VDD allows you to review your changes before check-in by automatically generating a report that is 100% accurate. Every change is outlined, even cosmetic changes between the new version of your schematic or layout vs. the old version. You also have the ability to suppress cosmetic changes and not show them. 

ECO DESIGN REVIEWS JUST GOT A LOT EASIER

Cliosoft VDD makes preparation for ECO review meetings easy. Automatically generate reports outlining all the changes ahead of your next ECO review meeting with management. Nothing is missed and everything is reported for you.
