IP Lifecycle Management
Complete IP Lifecycle Management for new, existing, and 3rd party IP enables true design reuse and traceability for any size organization and across multiple groups, sites, and geographies.
SOC Design
All IPs in a system-on-chip design - whether analog, digital, mixed-signal, software, embedded software or some combination - are fully tracked by version, hierarchy, and quality level throughout the design process, simplifying SOC assembly and providing full traceability from design ideation to final tape-out and shipment.
Software Design and Development
IP lifecycle management for software and firmware design, complete with a unified platform based BoM and compatibility and configuration checks for software and hardware across a common platform.
Functional Safety
Documented evidence of a traceable path from requirements through design to verification demonstrates that all work has been done to meet Functional Safety requirements such as ISO 26262 for automotive and DO-254 for aerospace.
IP Security Assurance
Every SoC is a patchwork of IPs with various origins, quality levels, and sometimes poorly understood security "attack surfaces". Methodics solutions will help you track everything needed to assure the security of your design.
Verification Traceability
Throughout the design process, verification data at each stage remains connected to the design snapshot - or release - that is being used. This assures that problems found during test can be traced back to the corresponding design versions and then fixes can be implemented and easily verified by version.

Here's what our customers
are saying about us

In addition to an open architecture, it is important that our IPLM vendor have a track record of scalability and reliability to share data across multiple design sites, help reduce the need for data storage, easily create and manage design workspaces, and help us find, reuse, and ‘nest’ various IP blocks. After evaluating other companies and talking directly with Methodics customers, we decided that they were the best choice.

Ty Garibay
VP of Engineering at Mythic

By implementing Percipient as the IP Lifecycle Management solution within TSS, our goal is to eliminate the various siloes of design data and create a single-source-of-truth for all IP design elements – whether analog or digital and regardless of whether the IP is internally developed or externally acquired – that also provides complete traceability for the design data.

Robert Graybill
President and CEO of Nimbis Services, Inc.

With six worldwide manufacturing sites and a commitment to be the foundry of choice for the analog world by focusing on innovative solutions and manufacturing excellence, it is important for us to have traceability and accountability for all the data in our designs and to be able to collaborate easily between all our design teams and manufacturing sites with confidence. With its technology and experience at helping other global companies achieve their scalability and trusted data goals, Methodics was the obvious choice for us.

Jörg Doblaski
Director of Design Support, X-FAB Semiconductor Foundries

WarpStor has helped solve what was becoming a large bottleneck for us. By drastically reducing the amount of time and disk space needed to create our build environment, we can run our qualifications significantly faster. In addition, we have dramatically reduced the storage footprint across thousands of design workspaces. This allows us make better use of our existing filers, reduce the need to purchase additional storage, and relieve network congestion.

Balachandran Rajendran
Sr. Technical Manager, Advanced Computing Lab. Samsung

With each generation of design, the volume of design data and IP generated throughout the organization grows exponentially and the old way of managing that complexity simply doesn’t work anymore. We realized we needed a system that helps us manage the IP we have today and supports best practices for IP re-use moving forward. Methodics offered a powerful solution by providing us with a collaborative platform to perform IP re-use more efficiently and in a sustainable, scalable way.

Rick Stawicki
Executive Director, EDA Engineering Maxim Integrated

When we were looking for an IP lifecycle management solution in 2016, we knew we needed one that would provide true design collaboration between our worldwide sites and also scale as we continued to grow. Based on prior experience with Methodics, their solution seemed a good choice and, after an evaluation, we selected Methodics for our needs. We’ve been using their solution for 3 years now, and we’re very happy with the features and quality of the software and their level of support.

Tarun Gupta
Associate Vice President of Mixed - Signal Engineering

The VersIC/Perforce combination allows us to manage our IP reuse and tape-outs. In addition, it allows a high level of collaboration with our groups internationally for a number of designs at Bosch. We are very happy with its performance, level of functionality and ease-of-use. VersIC/Perforce will continue to be a very important part of our tool suite at Bosch.

Clemenz Portmann
Principal Engineer. Bosch

By using WarpStor to build our regression workspaces on top of our SCM, we were able to not only dramatically reduce the storage requirements for our regressions, but we also improved filer write performance. Overall, this has had a huge impact in reducing both time and cost, as well as stabilizing our overall regression environment.

Design Verification Director
U.S. Based Flash Memory Company

VersIC gives us the high performance configuration management tools we need to facilitate PDK development, project design data management, and IP variant sharing across design teams. We now have the high performance backbone we need to enable true collaboration in our hardware design environment.

Dustin DeVries
CAD Director. Cirrus Logic

The VersIC DM tool is simple to set up and Methodics is providing great support. Our designers immediately accepted the VersIC platform due to its ease of use. Additionally, since VersIC can be set up on top of a Subversion repository, we can benefit from the space-efficient tagging and branching of SVN, and leverage the broad open-source community behind it.
