Companies designing today’s complex system-on-chips (SoCs) must find new ways to meet the challenges imposed by shrinking time-to-market windows and cost pressures.

Enter platform-based design methodologies, allowing companies to reduce the time it takes to bring designs to market and maximize reuse of internal IP on those designs.

What Is Platform-Based Design?

A platform is the starting point for a new or derivative design that contains all of the IP and design meta data properly configured to be downloaded to a user’s workspace.

To enable a platform-based design methodology, companies must formalize how design IP is handled. Read this white paper to learn about:

  • Changing methodologies to handle SoC complexity.
  • Cataloging, searching, and analytics.
  • Links between issue and defect systems and bug systems.
  • Easy and comprehensive variants management.
