Yesterday, I wrote a blog post about Semico’s Rich Wawrzyniak’s excellent report on IP Subsystems. Today, I thought I’d extract the six key issues he sees as facing the ASIC and IC design community today, to see if you agree. The six top issues are:
- Rising design costs
- Increasing design complexity
- Shrinking market windows
- Lengthening design cycle times
- Rapidly changing marketing requirements
- Escalating integration costs for semiconductor IP blocks
Do you agree with this list? How about the order? Which ones are biting you?
