Managing multiple data sources and verification reuse are top IP reuse challenges
CAMPBELL, Calif., Apr 24, 2013 – IC Manage, Inc. today announced the availability of its fifth annual Global Design Management Report. This year’s report is on IP Reuse – Design and Verification and covers the results of a 372 respondent survey of SOC and IC design professionals; it spans design reuse, verification reuse, and dependency management.
The findings from the industry-wide April 2013 independent, anonymous worldwide survey include:
1. Non-Memory SoC & IC design composition: Internal IP, third party IP, new content
2. IP Reuse and Verification: tasks/time, inefficiencies, checklists
3. Top IP reuse dependency management challenges
4. Percentage of tape outs with known bugs
5. Measured ROI from IP reuse dependency management system
6. Organizational incentives to increase internal IP reuse
“For efficient IP reuse across the enterprise, it is critical to manage both the design and the verification aspects,” said Dean Drako, President and CEO at IC Manage. “Once companies implement a strong technology infrastructure and internal process for IP reuse, their teams experience the major benefits and more readily participate in the next design.”
