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.


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


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

  • 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
