GUC as an ASIC vendor working on leading edge technology, we had developed our own quality control system in-house for more than ten years. A few of them are collected from real production experience and we treat them as our confidential proprietary know-how. Using general commercial tool will not be able to serve our need. We actually transfer certain design criteria check to some commercial verification tool when needed. For the dash-board view and metrics analysis, we do integrate with commercial PLM (Project Lifecycle Management) system developed by Dassault Systems. http://www.3ds.com/fileadmin/COMPANY/CUSTOMER-STORIES/PDF/GUC-flyer-Eng-low-res.pdf

Yes, the Design Data Management is our in-house system which is more like a place-holder to contain design data in each major design stage. It is not a working repository that store the daily design change, but instead it stores a full snapshot when certain pre-define stage had achieved. It could be used for data exchange among different parties. Our WFM-DDM infrastructure could co-worked with major commercial DDMs which served designer's daily design change. The reason we don't choose specific commercial DDM is because in different design stage, the design data format is different and it can not be handled by one single DDM so-far.

Same question about the quality control. Why didn't you choose a commercial tool for that (like SatinTech MS)?

I'm curious about your Design Data Management, is this your own system? Why didn't you choose some commercial DDM tool? Thanks.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
