Is IC design methodology at the breaking point? Evidence is mounting that traditional “waterfall” methods used to develop complex ICs are running out of steam.
Consider that today:
- Some IC designs contain more than 100 IP blocks that must be integrated from multiple sources.
- Design requirements are constantly in flux.
- Demands for low power and security are increasing as device connectivity grows.
- Software content is rising in end-system products and HW/SW co-design/verification is a must-have capability.
In this video, several IC design subject matter experts speak out on the topic of Agile IC Methodology.
