Lessons from the Field: IP/SoC Integration Techniques that Work

This paper presents a standards-based IP integration methodology. The solution presented combines the standardization of IP interfaces with a corresponding rules-based integration methodology that leverages these interfaces to provide rapid and high-quality IP integration. The capabilities, benefits and limitations of using IP-XACT to standardize configurable IP are explored, as well as how the industry is really using the IP-XACT standard.
