Artiscan is software developed and owned by Arm, which scans for the existence of the tags, fingerprints, and other unique signatures used to identify Arm logic libraries, memory compilers, and interface IP. The Artiscan software is a Linux-based command line tool that is run locally by Arm partners to scan GDS files and identify relevant IP. It leverages multiple detection techniques to ensure that Arm IP is being properly tracked by end-user licensees and foundry partners. Artiscan supports scanning on GDS files as well as the OASIS format.
Please ensure that you use the latest (i.e. current) version of Artiscan provided by ARM. Please implement the usage of a new version within a reasonable time, in line with your licensing and reporting obligation.
