D&R Gateway is a secure and confidential portal offering IP catalog data update services. Twenty five providers have been selected as pre-qualified providers by at least one large OEM. From this portal the confidential data about their IP portfolio is transferred into the target intranet catalogs of the OEM companies with whom an agreement has been signed. This data transfer is performed without the intrusion of the OEM and through straightforward Java import/export mechanisms patented by D&R.

With 37,000 registered users D&R delivers lead services to the providers. D&R has also addressed the reuse challenge by offering proven Services and Software products with emphasis on Web cataloging, IP Data import in intranet catalogs, Silicon IP packaging and delivery platform up to full intranet collaborative SoC design environment.

D&R delivers two products which, combined, create a comprehensive intranet Reuse infrastructure. It provides an IP supply chain delivering external IPs as well as internal IPs from the designer site to the user site under the control of an IP management system hosting the corporate IP directory.

It offers flexible catalog creation capabilities, life cycle support, unique catalog import /export primitives between companies without firewall intrusion, sophisticated access control and advanced user support. In 2002 the firm introduced a companion tool e Design
Manager, an IP packaging and delivery software; It aims at describing or publishing the set of documentation, design and qualification files delivered over the intranet for allowing the integration of the IP in e design by a XML schemes, triggering the transfer of the files from a design data base to a delivery platform from which a designer can download the IP under a customizable protocol.

The company has been profitable since its creation. Net benefits of $150K, $225K and $150k were reported in 2000, 2001 and 2002 respectively. In 2005 D&R intends to raise VC investment.

SIPAC, System Integration & Intellectual Property Authoring Center, is a non-profit organization founded in April 2001 with support from the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) to deal with the urgency of semiconductor or silicon intellectual property design and distribution in Korea. Since 2001, SIPAC has established an IP trading system providing a variety of IP related services and now including more than one thousand IP catalog information registered therein so as to foster IP transaction, developed IP related guidelines such as HDL coding guideline, AMS design guideline, IP registration guideline, IP deliverables guideline, etc., and constructed an Internet-based IP
verification and evaluation System that enable IP trading system users to verify and evaluate their own IP directly on line. In addition, SIPAC has been cooperating with a number of foreign IP/SoC related organizations as Korea's representative IP/SoC organization to exchange information regarding IP transaction and design standards. Recently, SIPAC joined OCP-IP and collaborates with OCP-IP to create Korean website in OCP-IP. This year, SIPAC has plans to make Korean IP/SoC standards based on SIPAC IP/SoC guidelines and to develop SIPAC IP Quality Standard so that IP sellers and buyers can evaluate the quality of IP objectively by using this standard before they transact the IP.

Taiwan SoC Consortium (formerly named the Silicon IP Consortium) is a non-profit organization founded in January 2000 and formed by the Industrial Technology & Research Institute (ITRI). Member companies include fabless design houses, integrated devices manufacturers, system vendors, foundries, EDA companies, SIP & design service companies and semiconductor research organization, etc. Among the main goals of Taiwan IP Gateway is to facilitate the IP information sharing and IP exchange for IP industry, especially for Taiwan IP industry.
