Methodics IPLM Core 3.1


This version adds the ability to restrict certain IP addresses' access to specified IPs, reducing the risk of IP leakage.

Local Workspace Modifications

Stronger IP Security

Improve IP security with support of the Accellera IPSA standard and protect IP with geofencing and blockchain. Methodics IPLM 3.0 addresses:

  • IP portfolio leakage with the Methodics IPLM permissions hub and geofencing. This helps you create a single source of truth for permissions across your stack and customize regional IP protections.
  • IP security assurance with support for the Accellera IPSA emerging standard. This includes a security property template, security queries and searches of the Accellera IP database, and integrated dashboards and reports.
  • IP provenance with blockchain support for the IP lifecycle and secured IP metadata. This helps you verify the IP source, ensure IP has not been changed en-route, and trust the IP works as originally designed and intended.

Accelerated Design Collaboration

Accelerate design collaboration with performance enhancements to the IPLM platform. Methodics IPLM 3.0 includes the following improvements:

  • Custom defined objects (CDOs) that enable rapid prototyping of functionality, allowing for easier integrations.
