ENOVIA DesignSync for Synopsys Galaxy Custom Designer

Dassault Systèmes announced the ENOVIA DesignSync for Synopsys Galaxy Custom Designer mixed-signal implementation solution. The tool integrates the design data management (DDM) capabilities of both ENOVIA DesignSync Data Manager and ENOVIA DesignSync Central within the Synopsys Custom Designer environment. The Custom Designer integration enables engineers to manage all of the integrated circuit (IC) design data from Synopsys and non-Synopsys tools within a single, collaborative platform.

ENOVIA DesignSync for Synopsys Custom Designer Features

  • Integrates ENOVIA DesignSync Data Manager and DesignSync Central with Synopsys Custom Designer
  • Enables designers to manage all integrated circuit (IC) design data on a single platform
  • Synopsys library directory structures and data types are recognized
  • Engineers can manipulate familiar constructs such as cells or views
  • Tool automatically processes the underlying files and directories which comprise data views
  • Auto checkout and check-in of cell views is enabled by functions registered with the Synopsys Version Control system and controlled by user preference settings
  • Custom Designer calls the Version Control System before editing (auto checkout) and after editing (auto check-in), which in turn communicates with ENOVIA Synchronicity DesignSync Data Manager
  • Custom Designer Library Manager is modified to include revision control information for cell views including versions, tags, and locking status
  • A single library can be distributed across multiple data repositories by using ENOVIA Synchronicity’s Module based data storage
  • Local efficiencies are maximized at each design center because the majority of data transfer activity (checkin/checkout) occurs locally
  • Strict locking model is enforced because Synopsys design data is binary in nature
  • When libraries are created using Custom Designer, the library is automatically associated with ENOVIA Synchronicity DesignSync Data Manager’s version control system so that any subsequent read/edit access is secured and managed via the DesignSync revision control repository
  • Design data management operations on Synopsys library data can be performed using either ENOVIA Synchronicity’s GUI, programmatic APIs or the command line
  • Multiple libraries can be processed using one command, which is not possible from within Synopsys
