IC Manage Releases IP Reuse and Design Management Survey Results

Verification and IP Reuse are Top Two SoC & IC Design Process Segments Needing Advancement

LOS GATOS, Calif., June 2, 2011 – IC Manage, Inc. today announced the availability of its third annual “Global Design Management Report”, which covers the results of a 465 respondent survey of IC design professionals.

IC Manage’s Global Design Data Management report covers the following findings from an industry-wide April 2011 independent, anonymous worldwide survey, along with an ROI impact summary:

  1. SoC/IC design primary bottlenecks
  2. Organizational drivers for deploying design management systems
  3. Top challenges for managing semiconductor IP
  4. Design and verification time associated with design management tasks
  5. Design management systems – Current adoption and 2011 plans

“IP collaboration and reuse ranked as the number two area requiring technology focus over the next two years, said Dean Drako, President and CEO at IC Manage. “When we combine this finding with the related survey data on the primary challenges of managing IP, the right IP reuse platform will greatly impact semiconductor companies’ efficiency in delivering SoC and IC designs.”
