Design Methodologies

The methodology deliverables may contain instructional materials such as:

  • Design Flows—Step by step instructions guiding users through the CMC design environment on knowing “what to do”
  • Design checklists—a list of items to consider in your design to ensure successful implementation
  • Design tutorials—instructional material to go through the design flows. It may also include sample design files and libraries.
The design methodologies provided by CMC Microsystems help guide users through the design process to ensure successful “designs”.
