As Dr DSP commented, the process described is reasonably standard to many of us involved in acquiring and using IP in design. The selection, acquisition and use is not well understood by many people in companies doing design. For that reason, I appreciated seeing the article today. A major area that was not covered, is the selection, acquisition, development, and qualification of IP when it does not exist off the shelf. The time to develop and qualify IP for a new or modified process is poorly understood. The testing that Kurt suggests is an excellent start for both off the shelf and IP being developed.

A couple next level items for due diligence verification: i. Sense amp margin methodology using local/global statistical process variation to understand impact on performance/yield across process window ii. Complete set of test data compared to silicon verification report. Test run at speed? Test run w noise injection? iii. Compatible versions of DFM/EDA tools and DR/Spice models between IP and SoC Regards, Kurt Wolf Silicon-IP

Most of the deliverables listed in the Ip Procurement are fairly standard. It would be better to have some best in class metrics for these deliverables so more than just their existence could be measured. Want to share another level of detail on how to judge these are OK, Good, Better or Best?
