Independent company implements industry best practices – enables SoC designers to achieve full benefits of 3rd party semiconductor IP outsourcing

The Only Independent Outsourcing Firm of Silicon-IP Procurement for SoC Design Teams

Silicon IP, Inc. founder Kurt A. Wolf presented interim results of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) IP Licensing Best Practices survey at a DesignCon 2010 tutorial. During the presentation numerous requests from the audience of semiconductor silicon designers called for a company to implement the IP Licensing Best Practices. Now for the first time an independent company, Silicon-IP, Inc., uses its proprietary due diligence expertise to incorporate the GSA IP Ecosystem Tool Suite including the IP ROI Calculator and IP Licensing Best Practices into use for customers. Independent and objective 3rd party IP information is required to drive the make-vs-buy, evaluation, and implementation decision making process. The benefit for customers and suppliers is a repeatable, structured business process that successfully reduces the time and cost associated with the silicon IP license negotiation process.

Silicon-IP, Inc. enables system-on-chip (SoC) design teams to outsource part of the semiconductor operations chain. This is the only independent company that provides technical and quality due diligence & license negotiation of 3rd party IP for silicon chip design teams.
