Design Data Management

ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management platform empowers local or multi-site design teams to collaborate efficiently on all types of complex designs – analog, digital, RF and mixed-signal – from concept-to-GDSII.

Design teams using SOS7 can streamline their design development cycle and manage the design handoffs and ECOs efficiently for all their design flows to ensure successful tapeouts. SOS7 has been built from the ground up for performance, security, network storage optimization and customizability to meet the demanding requirements of today’s complex design environments.


SOS7 is the leading design data and IP management platform offering a comprehensive solution for SoC designers to manage their data from concept to tapeout.

The SOS7 design management platform provides:
  • Scalable & flexible platform, enabling a secure design environment
  • Revision control with release and derivative management
  • Integrations with tools from all major EDA vendors, providing flexibility to change EDA platforms without worrying about the underlying design management platform
  • Interfaces to issue tracking software
  • Optimize network storage without proprietary hardware or operating/file system changes
  • Facilitates design handoff & collaboration across multi-sites
  • Connectors to other software configuration tools such as Git, Subversion & Perforce
  • Multi-platform support – Linux, Windows, Cloud

IP Reuse Ecosystem

No company wants to reinvent the wheel for internally developed IPs. If there is an IP, which can be reused within an enterprise, the idea is to leverage it to the maximum extent possible.

ClioSoft’s enterprise IP management solution is built on this philosophy and extends the concept to include semiconductor IPs, documents, methodologies, scripts, ideas, etc.

It elevates design reuse within a company by providing an easy-to-use cockpit to manage the process of creating and publishing IPs and their derivatives. It provides a single portal for users within the company to access all internal and third-party IPs and designs. With multiple levels of built-in security and customizable workflows, ClioSoft’s IP management solution mitigates the unauthorized usage of IPs within the company. Its flexible approach means design teams can easily add a complex matrix of information including metadata such as foundries, process nodes, power-performance-area numbers and the various relationships between the IPs needed to ensure easy selection and integration of IPs.
