LOS GATOS, USA: IC Manage Inc., the leading provider of project and design data management solutions for the electronics industry, announced the integration of the Synopsys' Galaxy Custom Designer solution and IC Manage Global Design Platform (GDP). Engineers can now efficiently manage and share Custom Designer's design data across multiple design sites.
The integration of GDP and Galaxy Custom Designer provides advanced project and design data management capabilities within Custom Designer's familiar user interface, giving design teams version control, configuration and derivative management, as well as design data hand-offs and bug tracking.
Designers now have transparent access to complete version and icon-based state notification, fully hierarchical library and cell views, property file auto-check-in/check-out and revision history, resulting in reduced designer overhead and maximum productivity.
"The integration of the IC Manage GDP with Custom Designer further expands the ecosystem of our custom implementation solution and provides more tool choices for our customers," said Bijan Kiani, vice president of Product Marketing at Synopsys. "The openness of Custom Designer is key to driving the growing ecosystem of best-in-class tools that better serves the needs of our mutual customers."

"The IC Manage GDP integration with the Galaxy Custom Designer solution will enable efficient reuse and assembly of design data across local and geographically dispersed design teams."
