Today’s complex ASICs often leverage open-market IP to take advantage of reuse of standard functional blocks, and thereby improve time to market and development efficiency. However, the integration of that third-party IP, if done poorly, can lead to painful cost overruns and schedule delays. To ensure proper IP core integration, Open-Silicon has developed a detailed and comprehensive process involving close collaboration with IP partners and the SoC design team. This article will illustrate this process by showing how Open-Silicon and Kilopass worked together on a recent project to ensure success.
