IP Integration to accelerate SoCs

As the accelerating market of SoCs inevitably means a faster rate of adoption, system level designers are also faced with fragmenting markets, with new standards adopted and with multiple types of complex requirements in a system. The integration of IP (Intellectual Property) can be a boon, but there are caveats, as Caroline Hayes, Senior Editor reports.
