Solve Embedded Development Challenges With IP-Centric Planning

Solve Embedded Development Challenges With IP-Centric Planning
by Kalar Rajendiran on 07-18-2022 at 10:00 am

Requirements and Planning Stuck in the Past

At least once if not more, many of us may have faced the following situation. We download the latest software driver for a device only to find out after installing that it doesn’t work for your hardware. As per the release notes, it should work for your hardware but in reality it does not. We have no choice but to revert back to the earlier… Read More


WEBINAR: How to Improve IP Quality for Compliance

WEBINAR: How to Improve IP Quality for Compliance

Webinar – SoC Planning for a Modern Component Based Approach

We all know that project planning and tracking are critical for any complex undertaking, especially a complex SoC design project. We also know that IP management is critical for these same kinds of projects – there is lots of IP from many sources being integrated in any SoC these days. If you don’t keep track of what you’re using and… Read More

You Get What You Measure – How to Design Impossible SoCs with Perforce

We all know that a trusted, reliable, and well-integrated design flow is critical to successful advanced SoC design. So is proven, robust IP. While these elements are necessary for success, they are not, by themselves, sufficient. There are other aspects to consider – measurement, tracking and coordination. We’ve all heard … Read More

Achieving Scalability Means No More Silos

This is a story of contrasts and counter-intuitive results. Perforce recently published a white paper discussing enterprise scalability – what it takes, why it’s important and what can get in the way. The discussion will shake up some long-held notions regarding effective project management. The results can be significant,… Read More


Your IP Portfolio is Probably Leaking. What Can You Do About It?

Your IP Portfolio is Probably Leaking. What Can You Do About It?
by Mike Gianfagna on 05-13-2021 at 2:00 pm

Your IP Portfolio is Probably Leaking What Can You Do About It

This topic is inspired by a presentation at last year’s DAC presented by Methodics, now part of Perforce. The issues raised by the original presentation are still quite relevant in the current business climate. IP leakage is something everyone should consider as part of their normal business operations. Your design IP really … Read More

Perforce Embedded DevOps Summit 2021 and the Path to Secure Collaboration on the Cloud

Perforce recently held their virtual Embedded DevOps Summit. There was a lot of great presentations across many disciplines. Of particular interest to me, and likely to the SemiWiki readership as well, was a presentation by Warren Savage entitled Secure Collaboration on a Cloud-based Chip Design Environment. I’ll provide … Read More

Single HW/SW Bill of Material (BoM) Benefits System Development
by Daniel Payne on 02-23-2021 at 10:00 am

Perforce - IP

Most large electronics companies take a divide and conquer approach to projects, with clear division lines set between HW and SW engineers, so quite often the separate teams have distinct methodologies and ways to design, document, communicate and save a BoM. This division can lead to errors in the system development process,… Read More
