Yaron Kretchmer of Altera on using IP-based design and verification techniques and IC Manage. Covers testbench reuse, bi-directional link between bug tracking and DM, verification checklists and multiple systems to a central repository transition, one month initial deployment, and success measures.

Simon Burke of Xilinx regarding using IP-based design techniques and IC Manage for 28 and 20 nm design across 5 global sites. Includes design complexity growth, central repository, branching, security, and results achieved.

Nigel Foley of CSR on using IP-based design and verification best practices and IC Manage design management. Includes: linking verification and bug tracking, IP reuse, central IP repository, dependency management adoption incentives, and results.

Jacob Rael of Broadcom describes using IC Manage for Design Management, IP reuse, bug dependency tracing & notification, security, with only 4 hours transition downtime from prior DM system. Also, IC Manage Views™ for EDA tool acceleration, and Zero Time Sync™ workspaces.

IC Manage customer Vincent Ross of AMD on Design and IP Management best practices. Top challenges, and key practices for revision control, co-design at different sites, large data set synchronization.

IC Manage customer Doug Quist of NVIDIA on Design and IP Management best practices. “If it isn’t checked in, it doesn’t exist”, branching methodologies, bugs fixed once, managing 50% data growth a year. Important of DM technology such as atomic transactions, check-in performance, large data sets, scaling, visibility and security.
