Soft IP Tagging 1.0 Standard is Now Available from Accellera

NAPA, Calif., April 16, 2013 – Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards announces completion of its IP Tagging 1.0 standard.  The standard provides a mechanism to track critical soft IP data throughout the entire chip design and development process such that it can be readily identified, tagged, and used again for future designs.   Find out more and download the standard under open source license at www.accellera.org.

Using the Soft IP Tagging 1.0 standard, engineers now have the ability to easily determine if a block of IP is contained within a chip, if it is the correct version, and if it is a candidate for reuse.  In addition, semiconductor foundries, providers of IP, and manufacturers of design tools now have a standard way to track IP usage and royalty information with their customers.

The chip design process can include editing, synthesis, timing, placement, wiring, and other steps. Normally, control of a third-party IP source is lost once the block of IP is licensed, unlocked, or otherwise made available in clear code. IP Tagging 1.0 facilitates a data-driven method to tag a block of IP and track “where used” for applications such as ownership, royalty calculations, and recognition. It also facilitates the implementation of version identification for applicable bug fixes and errata and allows tracking of other data.

"I would like to thank the members of the IP Tagging Working Group for their dedicated efforts in achieving this IP standard,” said Kathy Werner, Accellera's IP Tagging working group chair. “Soft IP Tagging 1.0 not only provides a mechanism for version control and bug tracking, but can be used to determine the compatibility of an IP block for reuse in a future design. Engineers can now feel confident there is a standard methodology built around IP reuse, tracking, and data control.”

The Soft IP Tagging 1.0 standard is available immediately for download under open source license at www.accellera.org.
