EDA Design Data Management

IC Manage offers a high-performance design and IP management system for companies to efficiently collaborate on single and multi-site designs. GDP spans both digital and custom design. It allows efficient design data exchange between project managers, IP owners, chip designers, and verification teams.

Design teams spend a quarter of their time managing design and IP logistics. GDP improves designer efficiency and team collaboration by letting them dynamically track, control and distribute library, bug, IP, and IC/SOC/FPGA design data, including configurations and properties. All data authorized for sharing is rapidly accessible worldwide and secured by IC Manage Armor™ protection. GDP has IT infrastructure integration for global scalability, storage management, high availability, disaster recovery, and back-up integration.

Industrial Strength Design Management: Capacity, Performance, Reliability

Capacity. IC Manage GDP has the highest capacity and scalability in the industry. GDP can handle multiple terabyte data sets, hundreds of millions of files, and unlimited revisions needed for today's complex designs, without performance degradation. No other commercial system can handle the quantities of design data required to solve the entire IC design data challenges.

Performance. With IC Manage GDP, streaming data operations complete in seconds not hours. The message queuing TCP architecture has high performance over networks, particularly over long latency setups like the Internet. GDP minimizes bandwidth usage by ensuring only one copy of a particular version is sent over the WAN.

Proven Reliability. ICM GDP implements advanced database reliability features more commonly found in enterprise databases. IC Manage GDP has proven reliability without data corruption. It is ACID compliant, guaranteeing the database transactions are processed reliably.
