Managing design data efficiently and accurately is critically important to the successful completion of a design project. The combination of a reliable infrastructure, with a powerful data collaboration platform such as ClioSoft’s SOS, its integration with the EDA environments and a well defined methodology along with adequate training can help streamline the design flow. This will soon show a significant ROI by dramatically increasing team productivity, helping the design team meet project deadlines and significantly reducing the chance of expensive re-spins.
