SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ChipEstimate.com announced today that it has launched its new Compare IP tool, allowing users to easily compare multiple pieces of semiconductor intellectual property (IP) at once. The new tool, available now on the ChipEstimate.com website, lets users pick from over 12,000 IP listings on the site to compare multiple parameters such as node, foundry, IP features, vendors and more.
"We strive to provide complete, differentiated solutions for our customers and IP is a big part of that," said Mike Gianfagna, VP of marketing at eSilicon. "ChipEstimate.com's new Compare IP tool allows users to examine our IP side by side with the IP of our competitors, facilitating at-a-glance comparisons. This replaces a repetitive set of operations, allowing users to more quickly make informed decisions during the IP selection process."
As chips have become more complex and capable of handling multiple functions, companies cannot dedicate the time and money to design all of these functions themselves. Therefore, they turn to IP providers to quickly get new interfaces, controllers and verification IP for their designs. Sorting through all of the available IP is a challenge, even with standard search results. The Compare IP tool makes it much easier to compare the exact IP needed by criteria such as hard or soft IP, the intended process node, the foundry where the chip will be fabricated and the type of chips (ASIC, FPGA or structured).
The ChipEstimate.com IP portal is an ecosystem comprising more than 200 of the world's leading semiconductor design and verification IP suppliers and foundries. These companies all share in the common vision of helping the worldwide electronics design community achieve greater profitability and success. To date, a diverse global audience of over 46,000 users has joined the ChipEstimate.com community. ChipEstimate.com is a property of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ : CDNS ).
