Streamline Design Data, IP, and Engineering Lifecycle Management

An explosion in semiconductor design data and silicon intellectual property (IP) reuse is prompting semiconductor companies to optimize engineering lifecycle management . Analog, mixed-signal, radio frequency (RF), and digital designers must work on unified platforms for better scalability, security, and reliability.

Keysight's Design Data and IP Management platforms deftly maneuver the complex requirements of today's semiconductor design flows. Keysight Design Data Management (SOS) provides a sophisticated multi-site development environment that enables global teams to efficiently collaborate and manage design data from concept to tapeout. Keysight IP Management (HUB) empowers enterprises to catalog, reuse, publish, and track all internal and third-party silicon IPs securely throughout the engineering lifecycle.
