Finding the Right Needle in the IP Haystack

Finding the Right Needle in the IP Haystack

As the percentage of pre-configured IP increases in semiconductors, so design teams are able to reduce design cycle times. But one of the challenges for design teams is the inability to quickly and easily find IP because it’s incorrectly classified, sat in a designer’s home directory, or it’s been put into the ‘repository’ by an… Read More

Design Data Management (DDM) is a bit like insurance. It’s something every semiconductor company has to have, and as a result it’s probably something taken for granted. In order to make their products more useful, the DDM vendors have added more functionality to manage more of the lifecycle of design data.

I’m a believer in product life-cycle management (PLM) for semiconductor design. It’s not an attention-grabbing topic like faster verification or improved PPA in implementation, but now massive IP-based design is routine, IP’s are sourced from multiple suppliers each cycling though multiple revisions and now that design … Read More

Much though some of us might wish otherwise, distributed development teams are here to stay. Modern SoC design requires strength and depth in expertise in too many domains to effectively source from one site; competitive multi-national businesses have learned they can very effectively leverage remote sites by building centers… Read More

How to Deal With Seven Design Closure Issues

How to Deal With Seven Design Closure Issues
by Tom Simon on 05-02-2016 at 12:00 pm

The challenge of tracking design progress is a shared problem for individual designers, team leaders, and project managers. At each level the ability to step back from just reviewing error log files and seeing the arc of the whole design as it moves forward is valuable. The difficulty of seeing the whole picture is exacerbated when… Read More
