Design reuse is not only an issue of analysis yet a true commercial necessity within the microelectronic area and hence riding the competitiveness of suitable components like for instance telecommunication or car. such a lot businesses have already committed a division or a valuable unit that move layout reuse into fact. All major EDA meetings comprise a song to the subject, or even particular meetings were demonstrated during this region, either within the united states and in Europe.
Virtual parts layout and Reuse offers a range of articles giving a mature and consolidated point of view to layout reuse from assorted issues of view. The authors stem from all suitable components: examine and academia, IP companies, EDA owners and undefined.
a few classical issues in layout reuse, like specification and iteration of elements, IP retrieval and cataloguing or interface customisation, are revisited and mentioned extensive. in addition, new sizzling subject matters are awarded, between them IP caliber, platform-based reuse, software program IP, IP protection, enterprise versions for layout reuse, and significant tasks just like the MEDEA EDA Roadmap.

Virtual Components Design and Reuse

Layout reuse isn't just an issue of analysis yet a true commercial necessity within the microelectronic area and hence riding the competitiveness of correct parts like for instance telecommunication or car. so much businesses have already devoted a division or a critical unit that move layout reuse into fact.

5 Legal and business aspects • Needs versus process evolution: If design reuse is to be restricted to reuse of intellectual property designed in-house, there is little impact on business models and legal processes. However, design reuse methodologies are also driven by the need to externally source a large part of the IP, for three key reasons: The shift towards the consumerisation of electronics tends to progressively blur the long established boundaries between applications. As a consequence of the convergence of applications into single products, organizations which traditionally focused on single vertical markets will require to source critical functions externally.

However, there is already a capacious gap between what can be put into silicon and the capabilities of the CAD tools. This gap is going to widen further, and there are two pivotal solutions to combat this problem: • Design reuse in conjunction with a migration to higher levels of abstraction will augment the productivity by a factor of 5 to 10 after the turn of the millennium, and • Prototyping will decrement the time to market. 2 Goals The introduction of reuse is a complex task, because several elements of the current design flow are modified.

Qualified IP is also exchanged among silicon vendors. Currently, unqualified IP is exchanged between independent R&D companies and system manufactures and different silicon vendors. Besides this fact, software reuse is becoming more important because its flexibility supports the application of reusable components by taking into account that different environments may appear. • Short-term goals: To overcome the barriers of tools, flows and methodologies, an IP virtual library must be installed to ensure the trade of Intellectual Property: It also has to certify that a certain IP from certain source meets the necessary criteria for plug and play in target designs.
