Perforce and Methodics Deliver Fully Integrated Solution For Highly Scalable Semiconductor Design and Embedded Systems Development

Perforce and Methodics are used by four of the top five semiconductor companies globally.

MINNEAPOLIS, December 3, 2018 – Perforce Software, a global provider of enterprise-grade DevOps-focused software solutions, announced a more advanced integration and strategic partnership with Methodics Inc, the leading provider of enterprise-wide IP Lifecycle Management (IPLM) solutions for semiconductor and software design. Experts from Methodics will be demonstrating this advanced IP management solution at IQPC’s semiconductor focused ISO26262 conference in Munich, Germany December 4-7.

Perforce’s Helix Core version control system combined with Methodics Percipient IP lifecycle management platform deliver a modern, scalable, and secure solution for collaboration that improves productivity on high-tech hardware and software projects.

“As a Perforce strategic partner in the global semiconductor design segment, Methodics brings significant value to our customers,” said Mark Ties, CEO of Perforce. “We are proud to work with a company as innovative as Methodics. And we look forward to continuing to strengthen and expand our joint penetration of the semiconductor and embedded systems markets.”

Methodics’ approach to delivering end-to-end IPLM solutions is through key integrations with best-in-class industry standard products. It wants to provide the most value and benefit to customers, rather than build proprietary systems that lock customers into a rigid, self-serving design flow.

“Perforce’s acceptance across software and hardware design industries is a natural fit with us,” said Simon Butler, Founder and CEO of Methodics. “Our customers benefit from Perforce’s experience and from the scalability they’ve been able to achieve across global design teams. Together, we are well-positioned to provide the best-in-class enterprise scale solutions required to meet our customers’ needs.”
