At the recent Semico IMPACT Summit there were a number of interesting presentations and panels that touched on the fundamental changes that IP is driving in SoC design. The topics covered a lot of different ground, but a consistent message is that the relevance of IP has never been greater and that good things lie ahead for all those involved.

It seems that we are not alone, as SemiWiki just sat down with CEO Simon Butler to get his thoughts on the growth of IP, and how it will impacts customers.
The key takeaway from the interview is that as IP grows, so to does the need for IP Lifecycle Management. Rather than me repeat it here, click below to get the information straight from the source.
