CAMPBELL, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Manage, Inc., a leader in global design management and IP reuse, today announced that its IP Central platform for IP reuse was selected as a top 2 pick by conference attendees in the DeepChip Design Automation Conference (DAC) Report, where each year, hundreds of users review the products exhibited at the EDA industry's premier conference. One IP Central user stated, "For the first time we can mix foreign depots/revision control systems, such as DesignSync, ClearCase, Subversion and Perforce, in IC Manage and sync them. ...IC Manage uses virtual representation of objects. ...We would also like to use IP Central to get up to the minute project status. We want to understand the IP/module's development at each stage, for example, to see if an IP block is ready/suitable to be reused, LVS clean, DRC clean, DFM clean, if post-layout simulations have been run and signed off, or some metric custom to a project." DeepChip.com is an online forum where semiconductor chip designers contribute data-intensive papers and articles of first-hand evaluations and production benchmarks of commercial EDA tools. The DeepChip DAC report is an annual survey that started in the 1990's. "This is the second year in a row that IC Manage IP Central has made the DAC Top 5 hot tools with chip designers," said John Cooley, DeepChip moderator. "This clearly shows how IP reuse is becoming more and more important for chip designers today."
