    Article: Why IP Must Be Defended-sdn-abstract-forwarding-model-min.jpg

    I've designed hardware and written software for decades now, so it comes as no surprise to see industry trends like Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) growing in importance. Instead of designing a switch with fixed logic you can use an SDN approach to allow for greatest flexibility, even after shipping product. For SDN the key feature is the configurable match action devices as shown below in the plum color:

    Silvaco was founded the same year I entered the EDA industry (1984) fresh from University. I first met them at the Design Automation Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and have been an active observer of their growth ever since. In fact, Silvaco is now the largest privately held EDA company and is growing at a rapid pace. In 2014 Silvaco hired ...

    The Design IP market is doing well, growing at higher CAGR that the semiconductor market it is serving, in fact 10% higher for 2007-2017! You may wonder why this IP market is so business friendly? I will try to answer and propose the top 3 reasons explaining this behavior. To name it: IP business is recurrent, external IP sourcing is increasing penetration, and product ASP are constantly growing, for most of the IP. I will obviously develop and explain ...

    Successful projects leverage the investment in comprehensive methodology and resource planning, covering design and analysis flows Ė that planning effort is especially important for functional verification.

    The emergence of complex SoC designs for advanced automotive applications has led to a major focus on verification planning, as reflected in the ISO26262 standard. This standard defines requirements for automotive product verification, specifically:
