Chiplets and IP and the Trust Problem

Chiplets and IP and the Trust Problem

Perforce recently hosted a webinar on “IP Lifecycle Management for Chiplet-Based SoCs”, presented by Simon Butler, the GM for the Methodics IPLM BU. The central theme was trust, for IPs as much as chiplets. How can an IP/chiplet consumer trust that what they receive has not been compromised somewhere in the value chain from initial… Read More

SoC integration offers huge benefits through reduced chip count in finished systems, higher performance, improved reliability, etc. A single die can contain billions of transistors, with multiple processors and countless subsystems all working together. The result of this has been rapid growth of semiconductor content … Read More

I hinted earlier that Consensia would introduce at DAC their comprehensive approach to IP management across the enterprise, which they call DelphIP (oracle of Delphi, applied to IP). I talked with Dave Noble, VP BizDev at Consensia to understand where this fits in the design lifecycle.


IP management means a lot of different things.… Read More

Small EDA companies often focus on a single point tool and then gradually over time they add new, complementary tools to start creating more of a sub-flow to help you get that next SoC project out on time. The most astute EDA companies often choose to partner with other like-minded companies to create tools that work together well,… Read More


Digital, Analog, Software, IP – Isn’t it all just the same?

Digital, Analog, Software, IP – Isn’t it all just the same?

Designing an SoC requires a team, and the engineers typically use lots of specialized EDA software and semiconductor IP to get the job done. Many have started to ask about how designing a chip is different than designing and managing a large software project, or how is analog design different than digital design in terms of managing… Read More


Dassault DAC Assault

Dassault DAC Assault
by Paul McLellan on 05-19-2013 at 3:25 pm

Dassault Systèmes is not a company entirely new to DAC, but with the acquisition of Matrix One (which had already acquired DesignSync) a few years ago and Tuscany Design Automation’s PinPoint last year they now have a richer portfolio to support various aspects of electronic design. By the way, Dassault is a French company… Read More
