Overview

What's New in this Group?

Intellectual Property (IP) is a cornerstone of the semiconductor industry.  Semiconductor companies generate, buy, and sell IP cores as a normal course of business.  Many companies have been purchased based solely on the value of their IP.  Additionally, patent rights are regularly traded between industry companies. However, issues abound with the purchase of IP in terms of understanding the actual IP content, licensing terms, royalty payments, etc. Similarly, IP sellers strive to provide IP that is viable for a broad user base.

Vision

Provide a forum for open discussion of intellectual property best practices, licensing trends, sourcing / supplying, and process improvements.

Mission

Provide industry education relevant to IP Licensing, IP reuse, IP roadmaps.  Understand IP trends through timely surveys and analysis.

Objectives
  • Periodic IP Licensing best practices survey and analysis
  • Improve IP strategies by applying metrics that align buyers and sellers on key success indicators
  • Identify IP sourcing process advances and provide community education
  • Generate creative ideas to source IP to start-ups, envision IP as a product, and provide guidance on IP roadmaps to enable early development
Initiatives
  • 2015 IP Licensing Survey
    IP Licensing involves many parameters: Royalty, Indemnity, Maintenance & Support, Liability, Modification Rights, etc.  Participants in this short survey will receive free access to the follow-on report.  All data will be kept confidential (i.e., participants will not be mentioned by name or company name).
  • Licensing Executives Society (LES) – Work together to understand, promote, and implement IP licensing best practices for the semiconductor industry.

Intellectual Property Source Selection

The IP working group is actively exploring intellectual property source selection decisions.  We have completed both generic and SerDes specific version of this valuable tool.

This downloadable Excel workbook guides the user in evaluative potential sources of Intellectual Property block for Risk, Cost, and Performance.

The team will continue to generate version specific to individual IP block.  Your contribution, analysis and questions are welcomed.

IP ROI Calculator

The IP ROI Calculator was created to provide a framework that allows users to add their own data and criteria for their Make vs. Buy decision. Functioning as an excel workbook, the calculator has five main sections:

  • Introduction
  • IP Qualitative
  • IP Make vs. Buy
  • Product ROI
  • Sensitivity Analysis

MCCI is providing its TrueTask USB Host stack as the connectivity engine for Windows 10 IoT Core OS targeting Raspberry Pi. A quality USB host stack is needed to make Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi 2 suitable for for IoT development. "Creating USB host stack is risky because of the testing and requirements needed to be compatible with the huge variety of devices," says MCCI CEO Terry Moore., " TrueTask is pre-tested and pre-verified so our customers can focus on enhancing their IoT products and don't have to worry about USB connectivity." - See more at: http://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/design/embedded-systems/mcci-usb-host-stack-win-10-iot-core-raspberry-pi-2015-07/#sthash.9TYqrqCF.dpuf
