re: A practical approach to IP quality inspection

A very reasonable expectation but one which depends, unfortunately, on there being a widely accepted standard for quality. I am personally encouraged by the TSMC Open Innovation Platform which shows promise, among other areas, in qualifying soft IP for inclusion in their certified library. Becoming certified is not a particularly onerous task, so we can hope that over time, the credibility and size of TSMC will drive more and more IP vendors to follow this path, for their benefit (one set of rules to follow, access to a large customr base) and that of their customers. (Full disclosure - Atrenta collaborates with TSMC on the flow to qualify soft IP for this process)

I find the real issue to be determining quality prior to vendor selection. Hopefully vendors will use tools and can then provide back-up for their quality claims. Do you see this as a possible trend?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
