Accelerate product development through codevelopment of Hardware and Software

Rising product complexity and intense market pressures present major challenges to designers of electronic systems. To stay competitive, tight coordination between processes used by hardware and software engineers is critical to optimize product quality. This is especially true while controlling costs and meeting tight timelines.

This whitepaper discusses key elements of development and explores how the use of shared processes between hardware and software disciplines enable teams to develop products more quickly. Once shared processes are established, common tools can drive the next level of efficiency. It also highlights how how IBM has successfully used these techniques across a 25,000+ user base to significantly reduce development costs, increase reuse, and improve quality.

Improving IC Design Productivity with an Integrated Hardware Configuration Management System

Like software teams, hardware design teams need configuration management systems. However, Software Configuration Management (SCM) systems do not meet all the demands of hardware design teams. This paper explains the drawbacks of traditional data sharing and collaboration techniques and how a Hardware Configuration Management (HCM) system integrated into the design flow can enhance collaboration, improve productivity and dramatically reduce the need for re-spins.

Data Management for Hardware Design Teams

Hardware design data and design flows present unique requirements that are not met by software configuration management systems. This paper outlines how a system designed from the ground up to meet the unique requirements of hardware designers manages composite design objects, integrates into industry-standard design flows, understands design hierarchy, optimizes disk space usage for very large files, and facilitates collaboration across multiple sites.
