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
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

Protecting IP is a challenge. Many companies are constantly dealing with leaky IP portfolios, either due to nefarious action or just accidental behavior.
The complexity of design, with IP being made up of large nested hierarchies of other designers, makes tracking IP that much more difficult.
Today we have
IPs have an attack surface that indicates how they can be compromised in real world scenarios. Some portions of the attack surfaces are well known, others are discovered during analysis, testing or out in the field. SoCs that use large collections of IPs need a systematic and reliable way to determine the various security vulnerabilities… Read More
The world of IPs in the semiconductor landscape has completely changed the semiconductor design scenario, specifically the fabless design space. Today IPs are key components of any large semiconductor design, in the same way as auto ancillaries in auto design. It’s just the beginning, in the days to come we will see SoCs just as… Read More
Authentication means making sure that something is real, just like it sounds.In the real world, authentication has many uses. One of the most recognizable is anti-counterfeiting, which means validating the authenticity of a removable, replaceable, or consumable client. Examples include system accessories, electronic … Read More
