Four decades into the evolution of IP core design, the landscape continues to evolve. The demands of SoC designs—and ultimately end systems — have always been fertile ground for innovation and new approaches. This in part has spurred the rise of the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) movement. Yet long-time industry players such as Arm, Synopsys, Cadence, Ceva and MIPS are not standing still, and continue to rapidly evolve their technology and business. New technologies, alliances, acquisitions and approaches give engineers the broadest choice ever, but with this flexibility come new challenges. This panel will offer stimulating insights that will help you navigate this evolving IP world.
