ClioSoft was launched in 1997 by Srinath Anantharaman as a self-funded company, with the SOS design collaboration platform as its first product. The objective then, was to help manage front end flows for SoC designs.

The SOS platform was later extended to incorporate analog and mixed-signal design flows wherever Cadence Virtuoso® was predominantly used. SOS is currently integrated with tools from Cadence®, Synopsys®, Mentor and Keysight Technologies®. ClioSoft also provides an enterprise IP management platform for design companies to easily create, publish and reuse their design IPs.

Today ClioSoft, driven by the experience and innovation of a number of engineers, is the market leader for SoC design data and IP management solutions and the #1 choice for analog and mixed signal designers.

History

  • ClioSoft is launched as a self-funded company and introduces its first product, the SOS platform, to help manage front-end RTL flows.

  • Revision control and design management features of SOS are integrated with the Cadence Virtuoso flow, allowing users to manage revisions of schematics and layouts.

  • ClioSoft adds caching capabilities to SOS to help multi-site design teams collaborate more efficiently on complex design projects.

  • Introduces SOS viaICstudio to provide integrated Hardware Configurable Management for ICstudio custom IC design platform from Mentor Graphics.

  • Introduces Universal Data Management Adaptor, which allows CAD administrators to specify rules to automatically package co-managed files into a composite object and exclude files that should not be managed. Patented in 2010.

  • SOS products are integrated with Synopsys Laker3™ and Synopsys’ Custom Designer. SpringSofts’s Laker has been purchased by Synopsys and is now called Laker3 to form a unified front-to-back environment for custom circuit design and layout.

  • Agilent chooses ClioSoft as the SoC design management vendor for the Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS), an RF, microwave and high-speed design platform.
