Semiconductor IP Manager

Use the Semiconductor IP Manager Role to deliver system-on-chip products faster by leveraging a collaborative design reuse system closely tied to Semiconductor design process and management.

The ENOVIA 3DEXPERIENCE Semiconductor IP Manager (SEDEH) Role enables users to organize a company’s globally dispersed engineering design data in a catalog, facilitating search and compare and enabling efficient design reuse.

The design resuse catalog can be tailored to the company’s product and business environment, presenting different classified views depending on the user’s access rights.

Semiconductor IP Manager Benefits

Multiple Classification Hierarchies

Different users can search through the same IP libraries, using alternative role-specific classification hierarchies. For example, an IP may be classified differently depending on whether the user performing the search is in engineering or marketing.

Parametric Search

Users can search libraries based on attribute values to find components that satisfy specific search criteria, without having to navigate the library catalogs.

Parametric Comparison

Sophisticated comparison capabilities make it easy to identify differences and select the optimum component.

Email Notifications

Users can subscribe to libraries or individual product content of interest and then receive email notifications announcing changes.

IP Security

The extended enterprise gets access to library IP as needed without compromising security.

Semiconductor IP Manager Highlights

Parametric Searches and Comparisons

The powerful, yet simple to use, search capability makes it easy to locate product content based on complex sets of reuse criteria. Searching across different units of measure is simplified as the software automatically compares the specified search criteria against the database regardless of how the parameters were captured originally. An advanced comparison tool further analyzes search results to identify differences for ranking alternatives. The simplicity of the search tools encourages end users to look for the best available content always, instead of settling for the first adequate content encountered.

Library Classifications Relying on Access Roles

Users work with libraries that have been defined with classification taxonomies unique to their access role (as defined in Classification Manager). The same content may exist in more than one library, but it can be browsed and searched within the role-specific taxonomy of just one library. This makes it very easy for each role to share a common database and still find data from within the context of their own domain.

Library Security

A flexible access control mechanism allows librarians to determine which users and/or roles have access to the library classification structures. Only specified users can view and navigate the libraries, the library structures, and the content. Limited access can be granted to allow users to navigate the data, but not download classified content or IP. However, users can then request download access from the librarian for the given IP, which may be granted on a temporary basis with a time limitation for downloads.

Document Management

End users can classify product content from any ENOVIA role or be configured to create new product related documents of any type. Each document type can be assigned unique release processes and access controls. As a document proceeds through its lifecycle, different user roles can have access to download its files or upload a new version. When making changes, the document can be locked to visually cue other users that a change is being made.

Electronic Review Processes

The system can be optionally set up to enforce cross-functional reviews of library content before releasing it to a broader group of end users. Routes are used to circulate the content to select individuals for review and approval. Route creation and setup can be simplified further by the use of route templates, which pre-define the steps that must be followed. All users can benefit from capabilities such as password verification, password aging, password format checks, failed attempts logging, and requiring two administrators to alter a user’s password.

Notification of Changes

Users can subscribe to automatic notifications for key events such as new content additions to the library or changes made to classified items. Subscriptions can be attached to entire libraries or to individual components. Notification comes in the form of automatically generated email and can include attached descriptions and links to the relevant library or components for easy navigation. This means that users making use of data from the library can make decisions based on up-to-the-minute status of issues and updates, rather than static knowledge captured at the time of reuse.

Semiconductor IP Taxonomy

An industry standard taxonomy based on attributes from the VSI Alliance (VSIA) standard and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) enables companies to customize classification definitions quickly to meet a specific product and IP needs.

Semiconductor Design Data File Upload and Download

Deliverables are linked directly to semiconductor data. Users can browse the semiconductor design data directory hierarchy, view the content, and checkout/check- in as required. A centralized enterprise-wide system can work with multiple project-level DesignSync® servers across the organization or multiple project-level systems may be set up.

Collaboration & Approvals

Users can benefit from a wide range of capabilities for global enterprise collaboration. Those capabilities include the ability to manage and organize shared documents and structured product data; they also enable the creation of digital workspaces for virtual teams to work together. Users can easily raise issues, organize meetings and track decisions. Any object lifecycle modifications can be formally approved using routes defined by end-users or from standard route templates.

Microsoft Integration

Users can create and access 3DEXPERIENCE platform data from the most popular Microsoft applications: Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®, Outlook®, Windows Explorer, and Windows Desktop Search. This capability enables enterprise-level collaboration while not disrupting the established productivity of end-users. With product content being managed in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform rather than on users’ PCs, organizations are able to create, manage and review product content more securely.
