Big Challenges Facing the Top Semiconductor Companies
Designing and developing semiconductors is very expensive. And getting to market on time is nearly impossible — even for the top semiconductor companies.
That’s because semiconductor companies face many challenges — including DevOps challenges. Semiconductor designs are so complex. Enterprise engineering environments aren’t keeping up with the complexity of designs due to the large number of design components in the system. And they aren’t reusing components, leading to inefficiency and slowdowns.
It’s impossible for design teams to stay on schedule. At the same time, organizations are under pressure to deliver the latest product faster. This makes it even more difficult to assemble a system with the right components.
Successful semiconductor teams solve these challenges by using Perforce semiconductor design software.

Key Semiconductor Design Software From Perforce
Here’s how tools from Perforce — Methodics IPLM and Helix Core — solve challenges for leaders in semiconductor design.
IP Lifecycle Management
Methodics IPLM ensures complete visibility into the state and usage of IP from the moment it enters the system until an SoC is delivered.
Methodics IPLM supports:
- Advanced tracking and management of the IP release flow across multiple projects.
- Global workspace management
- IP bill of materials (BoM) management across the organization.
Design Data Management
Helix Core can handle the large number of files associated with IPs and analog chip design files. That’s why companies like Samsung — and almost all of the leading companies using semiconductor design software — use Helix Core. It manages all files – regardless of type, size, and quantity.
With Methodics IPLM and Helix Core, everything is automatically abstracted from the design teams. This creates a seamless IP catalog with all IP available on demand from a central location.
