The Rapid Success Of IP Reuse


The rise of IP use and reuse quickly became a challenge in the early 1990s as designs became more complex. Design teams quickly found themselves struggling to manage not only the vast numbers of IP cores that they were reusing but also versioning, permissions, legal approvals and so on. In the 1990s, software developers were established users of software configuration management (SCM) tools ... » read more

Supporting Academic Institutions – A Corporate Responsibility?


Innovation is rooted in collaboration, and there’s no better example—when done correctly—than the partnership between the various academic institutes or between the industry and academia. It’s a symbiotic relationship: Companies get access to leading research, ideas and creativity, while universities and research consortia get access to proven technologies, methodologies and experienced... » read more

More Than Data Management


By Ann Steffora Mutschler Managing the people, the data and the technology are just as important as meeting the market window given that without these, the entire project wouldn’t function. Throw huge data set sizes, different cultures and business management issues into the mix and the challenges are many. Fortunately, these are issues that the semiconductor industry has been refining for ... » read more
