One Platform for Semiconductor IP Management, Project Management, and Team Collaboration

Streamline semiconductor intellectual property (IP) design and resourcing with Keysight IP Management (HUB), a central repository for all information about semiconductor intellectual property core. Formerly known as Cliosoft HUB, this ISO 26262-certified IP management platform enables enterprise-wide IP catalog and IP reuse, design traceability for complete management control, and comprehensive collaboration support.

Design engineers and IP managers use Keysight HUB to create, manage, and share semiconductor IP including documents, user experiences, scripts, methodologies, libraries, and even ideas.  Keysight IP Management (HUB) guides engineers through the IP creation, design, management, and publication process from start to finish—and beyond.

Central Hub for Semiconductor IP Management and Reuse

With Keysight IP Management (HUB) software, design team can:

  • Create, find, reuse, and publish silicon IP and designs across multiple sites and teams with full visibility
  • Get real-time oversight and insights with notifications, workflows, tracking, and reporting features so you can review changes, analyze conflicts, and approve releases easily
  • Track IP and design dependencies automatically with bill of materials (BOM) or consumer filter options to help guide selection, updates, integration, and verification

Never Manually Track Down Semiconductor IP Usage Again

Keysight IP Management (HUB) provides clear design traceability of a silicon intellectual property (silicon IP) across the full hierarchy. This helps with engineering change orders (ECOs) and promotes adherence to industry standards like ISO 26262 functional safety. Keysight HUB knows exactly where an IP is being used, its dependencies, and the hierarchy within its design, eliminating the need to manually track down IP usage across the enterprise. Designers, managers, and consumers can trace important details across the IP with features such as:

  • IP usage tracking
  • Issue analysis
  • Document tracking
  • Filtering by BOM or by consumer

Locate, Compare, and Collaborate with the IP Catalog

The IP catalog feature within Keysight IP Management (HUB) helps engineers locate and compare all the semiconductor IP available across the enterprise — whether it is third-party and internal silicon IP — across the engineering lifecycle.

While third-party IP can include licensing information and impose license restrictions to prevent unlicensed usage, the IP catalog feature in Keysight HUB helps find the correct IP and get full visibility by including all crucial background information. This allows enterprises to streamline engineering lifecycle management, empowering design engineers from multiple sites to collaborate around the IP, perform real-time analyses, and share important data securely.

Keysight IP Management (HUB) Connects to Just About Everything

Keysight IP Management (HUB) integrates with IP design tools from all major electronic design automation (EDA) vendors for seamless collaboration. For semiconductor IP designers and project managers using data management tools, Keysight HUB includes connectors for smooth integration.
