As design complexity increases and design cycles shrink, IP reuse has become a critical component of success for hardware teams.

However, these two realities are often at odds with each other — complex IPs are hard to create, test, and reuse. On the other hand, SoCs need to be able to incorporate more and more complex IPs from diverse sources in as seamless and low effort manner as possible.

Managing IP Complexity

One way to manage complexity is break down IPs into simpler components and build the complex pieces up hierarchically.

While this is good for managing complexity, it introduces a host of issues that need to be handled by the IP management system to allow for hierarchical reuse of IPs.

In this white paper, learn how Methodics IPLM makes IP reuse smoother with discussion of:

  • Today's project is tomorrow's IP.
  • Creating IP hierarchies.
  • Context dependent resources.

Fill out the form to access this white paper and learn how Methodics IPLM uses the concept of “private resources” to ease the burden of IP complexity and enable hierarchical IP reuse.
