SemiEng: Incremental Design Breakdown

How much value comes from reuse? While still a necessary part of most companies’ methodologies, the advantages are diminishing.

Semiconductor Engineering


For the past two decades, most designs have been incremental in nature. They heavily leveraged IP used in previous designs, and that IP often was developed by third parties. But there are growing problems with that methodology, especially at advanced nodes where back-end issues and the impact of ‘shift left’ are reducing the savings from reuse…
