Challenges in Semiconductor Development
The complexity of system on chip (SoC) designs is outpacing the capabilities of engineering. That’s because of two trends:
- Increasing design complexity gives rise to increasing data size.
- Unforgiving market windows.
All of this together makes semiconductor development more challenging than ever before.
Each version of a semiconductor is even more complex than the previous version. And customer demands are intense. Everyone wants the latest product, which accelerates your timeline.
Fulfilling market expectations and meeting time-to-market demands is nearly impossible.
As a result, it’s difficult — and rare — for a semiconductor to launch on time, even for the top semiconductor companies. This leads many businesses to go over budget and experience delays in delivering semiconductors to the market.
You can avoid these challenges by choosing the right semiconductor solutions.

What You Need in a Semiconductor Solution
To fulfill market expectations and meet-to-market demands, you need a semiconductor solution with:
IP Lifecycle Management
Helix IPLM (formerly Methodics IPLM) mitigates complexity by providing a centralized system for design management across all types of projects and platforms. It streamlines analog/mixed signal, digital, software, embedded software, and SoC design. And boosts collaboration across multisite and multi-geographic design teams.
Helix IPLM also provides built-in traceability. It acts as a central source of truth that reflects the real-time state of all projects across multisite worldwide organizations.
By using Helix IPLM, your organization can accelerate time-to-market and reduce costs for semiconductor development.
Helix Core supports global semiconductor teams with storage, access, and management of design assets for analog, digital, infrastructure, and software development.
Helix IPLM and Helix Core are tightly integrated. This gives teams complete visibility into the state and usage of IP from the moment it enters the system until an SoC is delivered.
Plus, both semiconductor solutions integrate with third party tools, including bug tracking, requirements management, and customer in-house databases.
