Silicon-IP, Inc. Presents Best Practices for Acquiring and Managing 3rd party IP for the First Time

Share Article

Save two to three months of time & money per design by using Silicon-IP services.

Now SoC Designers can take advantage of proprietary industry best practice methodologies for selecting and acquiring third-party IP for their next chip design

Silicon-IP, Inc. presents for the first time its best practices for acquiring and managing 3rd party IP. Kurt Wolf, founder of Silicon-IP, is presenting as part of the Design & Reuse IP-SoC Days tour in Hsin-Chu, Taiwan and Shanghai, China. Mr. Wolf is speaking at the Hotel Royal in Hsin-Chu on Monday at 10:15am, October 18, 2010 and at the Howard Johnson Hotel Zhangjiang in Shanghai on Thursday at 11:15am, October 21, 2010.

Silicon-IP, Inc. provides turn-key and on-demand 3rd party IP acquisition & management services for SoC design companies. Designers increasingly require independent and objective third-party IP information to drive the make-vs-buy, evaluation, and implementation decision-making process. “Now SoC Designers can take advantage of proprietary industry best practice methodologies for selecting and acquiring third-party IP for their next chip design” Kurt said.

The implementation of SoCs today require design teams to develop and follow a rigorous methodology, including well-defined best practices for due diligence in acquiring IP. The benefit for designers and IP providers is a repeatable, structured business process that successfully reduces the time and cost associated with licensing silicon IP. Learn how Silicon-IP implements best practices in a repeatable Five-step Due Diligence procedure including validation of IP specifications, quality levels, & IP Licensing.

Significant delays in tapeout & volume production are caused when un-planned engineering resources are used to fix or re-design unintended or unknown compromises that were made at time of IP selection.
1) Inconsistencies in IP views & related quality cause lost engineering time and money,
2) Industry best practices are available for all SoC design teams,
3) Save two to three months of IP evaluation, verification, and integration time & money by implementing best practice procedures

“As an independent service, Silicon-IP provides even the smallest design team with the same or better knowledge, insight, and implementation skills as enjoyed by larger SoC companies - but without the expense of a dedicated, full-time team of technical and business professionals. Now all SoC chip designers are able to capture the full benefits of 3rd party semiconductor IP in-sourcing”, Mr. Wolf said.
