Increase Speed, Scale, and Collaboration with Hardware Design Management

Streamline your hardware designs and projects from concept to tapeout with Keysight Design Data Management (SOS). While software engineers commonly use software configuration tools, hardware engineers choose DDM (SOS) for its ability to handle large numbers of sizable design files. Formerly known as Cliosoft SOS, this design management platform allows you to optimize the archival of substantial graphic design system (GDS) files and simulation waveforms with scalability, flexibility, and robust security features. The advanced revision control, coupled with release and derivative design management capabilities, sets Keysight DDM (SOS) apart from the competition.

With Keysight's DDM (SOS) software, your team can:

  • Experience rapid hardware development lifecycles so you can take on more projects
  • Adapt to the growing demands of digital, analog, mixed-signal, and radio frequency (RF) designs with adjustable hardware configuration management capabilities
  • Effortlessly collaborate on multi-site designs with remote cache servers, auto synchronization, and secure data transfer and handoff

Adopt a More Productive Workflow

Built for hardware design and management, Keysight DDM (SOS) software lets you:

  • Create, update, and release intellectual property (IP) and designs with complete control and management directly from your design tool
  • Receive notifications of updated IP and designs to help guide selection, updates, and integration
  • Review changes, analyze conflicts, and approve releases easily

Optimize Network Storage, Reduce Costs

Keysight DDM (SOS) optimizes network storage without proprietary hardware or changes to operating or file systems. Designed for integrated circuit (IC) design projects that often involve thousands of large files, DDM (SOS) software maximizes workspace efficiency while minimizing disk space usage. By leveraging cache servers, DDM (SOS) eliminates duplication, ensuring that only actively edited files are stored as physical copies.
