Industrial IP Integration Flows Based on IP-XACT Standards
Effective integration of advanced Systems-on-Chip (SoC) requires extensive reuse of IP modules as well as automation of the IP integration process, including verification. Key enablers for this are standards to describe and package IP modules. The authors focus on the IP-XACT standards and demonstrate how these standards are deployed in three industrial IP integration flows. Further, they report on two future extensions to IP-XACT that are currently being explored in the SPRINT project, i.e. IPXACT based verification software generation and IP-XACT based configuration of debug environments.
