Missed milestones, lack of traceability, and costly respins. These are examples of what you risk if you do not take planning seriously during semiconductor design.

A rock-solid planning process in the SOC design process is a must. At the same time, the era of innovation is changing the way teams organize their work. Driven by inspiration from lean production methods and component based design flows — SoC design is ready to move to a more agile, collaborative, and traceable planning methodology.

Best Practices for Marketeers, Architects, and Design Engineers
